Free Beading Jewelery Pattern Swirls and Pearls Bracelet Very Easy Beginners Pattern


Visitors: 686

Welcome to the first of hopefully many free beading patterns. This pattern is very quick and easy, and is suitable for beginner jewelery makers everywhere.

Materials needed:

0.45mm diameter 7 strand tigertail wire

Sterling silver swirl clasp

8 12mm black and white blown glass beads

7 black 9mm freshwater pearls

14 Sterling silver spacer beads or

14 Silver lined 2mm seed beads

2 Sterling silver 1mm crimp beads

Optional - bag, pouch or box for presentation

Tools needed:

Crimping pliers or flat nosed pliers

Side cutters or scissors

Step 1

Cut a length of tigertail to suit your wrist. 25cm (10 inches) is usually about right. It needs to be a little loose to allow for the beads and some excess for ease of working. Slip a single silver crimp bead onto this tigertail, then pass the end through the jump ring on one side of your clasp. Bend the tigertail round to form a loop and pass the end back through the crimp bead. Gently pull the tigertail to make the loop smaller. The loop should allow the clasp to move freely, but not be longer than 5mm.

Step 2

Crimp the crimp bead shut with your pliers, leaving a tail of about 3mm on the end of the tigertail. This is to ensure you don't get a sharp end of tigertail scratching your wrist when you wear your bracelet.

Step 3

Thread your first blown glass bead onto your tigertail, ensuring the loose end is inside the bead, not sticking out. Thread on a silver spacer or seed bead, then a pearl. Add another seed bead, then a blown glass bead.

Step 4

Continue threading beads as above until you have used all your beads. Thread your remaining silver crimp bead onto the tigertail, then the other jump ring of your clasp. Fold the tigertail back on itself to form a loop, and pass the end back though the tigertail.

Step 5

Gently pull the tigertail until the crimp bead is fairly tight up against your blown glass bead. Pull the loose end until your pool is the same size as the one previously made. Crimp the bead shut.

Step 6

Cut the end of your tigertail, leaving about 3mm after the crimp bead. Push this end into the blown glass bead hole to finish the bracelet.
