Approximate Time: 1-3 hours

Supplies:

  • needle/eye pins findings
  • 50 grams of mixed color seed beads
  • 50 grams of glass beads
  • 50 spacers
  • 25 clasps
  • pliers

Instructions:

Please lay out all of your supplies in front of you. Get a feel of your colors and the pattern that you are trying to make. Each bracelet will need: 10 eye pins, 5-10 seed beads 3-5 glass beads, spacers (all depending on pattern or style) and a clasp. Take your first eye pin and add your beads in the order you please. Leave room, because you will be folding the end into a loop.

After you add your beads, take another eye pin and place the eye pin side down onto the first eye pin. The pin should fall onto the beads. Take your pliers and carefully bend it into a hoop, loop type deal. Repeat this ten times in the order you would like to see your bracelet. You can get you supplies from Micheal's or Joann Fabric.

Yes, they are very pretty, but when I looked at the picture I thought this was going to be about making a bracelet/necklace holder from what you have.

I also love the idea of doing your craft in a peaceful setting. I have been looking for something to take the edge off my day, and this might be something I could take up. Thanks for sharing this with everybody!

Really beautiful work! I make my bracelets in bed holding the beads in an unbreakable bowl on my lap.

Lately I've been adding unused earings on them. I keep them in a pile on my dresser and pick them at random for the workday I face. Londa

They're very pretty, but I don't understand this part of the directions: "After you add your beads, take another eye pin and place the eye pin side down onto the first eye pin. The pin should fall onto the beads. Take your pliers and carefully bend it into a hoop, loop type deal." Doesn't each eye pin have to have it's end bent into a loop, otherwise the beads will fall off?

I don't follow what putting another eye pin "eye pin side down onto the first eye pin" does. It doesn't sound like they are connected in any way. It sounds like you are putting one pin through the beads on one end and another through the same beads from the other end, in which case there is nothing to connect the pins to each other. Wouldn't this pull apart?
