Hi, My name is Molly and this is my blog; Beaute Beads. Here you can follow me on my journey as I learn and develop new jewellery manufacturing skills. I began making jewellery from beads at a very young age. As I grew older I became more curious in the endless possiblities of Jewellery Design. I am studing an Advance Diploma of Jewellery Design. I have been introduced and have commenced using Silversmithing processes, general use of precious and non precious metals, casting, gem setting, bezel making, shaping, annealing, soldering, inlay, burring, texturing. You can expect more learned techniques and visions of my progress in the future to come.

Glass Beaded Charm Bracelet

Simple steps of making a beaded charm bracelet of you very own:

You will need:
  • Pliers
  • Scissors
  • Nylon or elastic thread
  • 15-16 medium size Glass beads
  • 15-16 beads, 10 mm beads, if 5 mm you will need 30-32 beads
  • 15-16 headpins
  • 15-16 jump rings
  • Two crimp beads and two piece clasp (if using nylon thread)


1 First you need to decide:
The colour findings you will be using (silver, gold, antique ect).
Type of glass beads and their colour (assorted colour mix, blue, green, red mix, etc.).
The beads you will be using to space the charms (smaller beads are preferred)
Whether you are you going to have it on elastic or nylon
(If you are going to make it on nylon you will need to work out what type of clasp you will use).

Now we get started on making your glass beaded charm bracelet.

1 Now you need to start stranding on your glass beads onto the head pins. You can have more than one bead on each headpin if you like.
After you have thread a bead onto each headpin. Using your pliers you need to bend a closed up loop using the the rest of the wire on the headpin.
These will become your charms for your beaded charm bracelet.

2   Now put your charms aside. Now you need to cut your elastic/nylon.
You will need to have it two strands thick to give the bracelet extra strength to hold the glass beads and to make it easier for attaching the clasps to the nylon thread.

3 This step is if you are using nylon thread. With the nylon fold it in half and thread one piece of the clasp to the fold. Now thread a crimp bead on to the two strands and crimp the crimp-bead tight with your pliers so the clasp piece is held in place.


4 Before you start threading on all the beads attach each charm to its own jump ring.

5 Now to start threading on your beads (the beads which will be separating the charms).
After 1 to two small bead, thread on one charm (making sure your threading the charms on through the jump rings).

By now your bracelet should look similar to this:

6 Once you've threaded on all your beads and charms, for the elastic bracelet you will need to tie a double knot with the two ends of the bracelet:

7 With the nylon bracelet you will need to thread on a crimp and then the other piece of the clasp and then thread the nylon back through the crimp and the last bead you thread on. Then you need to squeeze the crimp in place and tie a not where you thread the nylon back through the last bead.



This is the finished product of an Elastic Beaded Charm Bracelet I have made:

Beaded Hand Slave Ring


Would you like to make your very own designer piece of jewelry?!
Below I will instruct you to make your own Beaded Hand Slave Ring!

You will need:
  • Pliers
  • Pier Cutters
  • Wrist memory wire
  • Ring memory wire
  • Glass seed beads
  • Assorted beads of same size
  • Silver chain - 7.8 -8 cm; or change length to suit hand size
  • 2 x silver drops
  • 2 x silver finish jump rings

1 Firstly you will need to thread your beads onto your memory wire.
Now cut your memory wire having it 3-4 rings thick. make a loop at one end of your memory wire and use the other end to thread your beads on. after every 15th seed bead thread on a bigger bead then repeat the pattern until you have all wire beaded, make sure their is enough memory wire left to finish of with another loop.

2 Now to make your ring.
Using the ring memory wire loop one end, make sure the loop is small enough it won't dig into your skin when wearing the ring. With the same seed beads you used to bead your bracelet use to bead your ring. When your ring is beaded finish it with another loop at the end.

3 Now you have your memory wire bracelet and ring. you will now need to make the beaded charms.
Do this by threading each bead onto a headpin, then once you've done that loop the top of the headpin. Now attach your charms to a jump ring each and attach them to one end of your chain. The chain I used was 7.8 to 8 cm long but you can change the length to suit your hand size.

4 This is the easy part and the final step to finish your beautiful new piece of jewelry!
All you have to do now is attach a jump ring to both ends of the chain then attach the end of the chain with the beaded charms to one ended loop of your bracelet. Now attach the other end of your chain to your ring.

Yay! You have finished making your Beaded Hand Slave Ring!

Here is the one I made so yours should look similar to mine. :)
