Spring Flower Beaded Bracelet Tutorial

Sometimes you just want to have a little fun with your beads! This cute bracelet tutorial from our beading friends at Panda Hall features a bright palette and a simple floral motif that you can weave with ease. The basic version uses acrylic beads for a very lightweight bracelet, but the wire based weave would stand up to just about any round beads your creativity demands. It would look fabulous with Swarovski neon pearls!

Yellow Flower Acrylic Beaded Bracelet

Spring is coming and flower jewelry is very suitable to dress for this season. There are many beaded flower patterns on picture sites like Pinterest, and when searching for beaded flowers, you will see lots of complicated and delicate designs. This yellow flower bracelet project, however, is quite simple and it is suitable for jewelry beginners, too.

To make the yellow flower bracelet, you will need:

6mm yellow acrylic beads
8mm green acrylic beads
Crimp beads
Tiger tail wire
Toggle clasp
Wire cutting pliers
Flat nose pliers

Begin by making the basic flower pattern: Take 60cm of tiger tail wire, and use a crimp bead to fasten the wire to the clasp. Then, string 8 yellow beads to the wire and make a loop by threading the wire back through the 1st bead added.

String a green bead on the tiger tail, and thread the wire through the 6th yellow bead added in the previous step. Tighten the wire and the first flower is made.

To begin the next flower, add 2 new yellow beads to the tiger tail, and thread the wire back through the 5th and 6th beads on the flower. Thread the wire through the 2 newly added beads again.

Add 6 yellow beads to complete the flower shape, and pass up through the bottom of the 2 beads added in the last step. Thread on a green bead and pass through the 4th yellow bead just added.

When the flower pattern reaches your ideal length, you can thread a crimp bead and the other half of the toggle clasp on the wire. Thread the wire back through the crimp bead and pinch with your pliers or crimping tool. Trim the extra wire down and you have finished the whole yellow flower bracelet.
