A Kiss at Sunset Wrap Bracelet/Necklace
Designer: Julie Bean
The colors of a beautiful sunset shine in this versatile piece of jewelry. Wear it as a wrapped bracelet or
convert it to a necklace. The Miyuki Berry Beads add depth and sparkle to this classically strung design.
Note: The clasp is really optional on this project. I placed it in there because I wanted to be able to use this bracelet as a necklace and it is easier to make several wraps around your neck if you have a clasp versus trying to get it over your head. If you just want to use this as a bracelet, then feel free to leave off the clasp.
- Cut 48" of Beadalon beading wire in gold color. Place a bead stopper approximately 5 inches from the tail of the beading wire.
String onto your beading wire: 1 gold crimp bead and 2 Miyuki berry beads in beige lined crystal.
Next, string onto you wire:
- 1 Swarovski 6mm bicone in Amethyst Dorado
- 8 Miyuki berry beads in beige lined crystal
- 1 Czech fire polished 4mm round bead in metallic gold luster
- 1 Czech fire polished 6mm round bead in brown iris
- 1 more Czech fire polished 4mm round bead in metallic gold luster
- 8 more Miyuki berry beads in beige lined crystal
Repeat the last step another 18 times.
String onto your beading wire 1 Swarovski 6mm bicone in Amethyst Dorado, 2 Miyuki berry beads in beige lined crystal, and a gold crimp bead.
Separate your box clasp so that there are two pieces to it.
Slide the tail of your beading wire through the loop attached to one half of your clasp. Pull it through and then loop it back through the crimp bead on your beading wire and several beads adjacent to it. and snip off the excess wire with flush cutters.
Go to the other end of your beaded strand and remove the bead stopper. Repeat the above step on this side with the other half of your clasp, making sure to pull snug before crimping to eliminate any gaps in your beading.
Make this same design in a wide variety of colors!
When substituting in items, pay attention to sizes and styles to make sure all your pieces will fit together.
Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.
