Pink Agate Bead Bar Bracelet
The bracelet design is fun to make and needs only some pliers and wire cutters for the wire work - a great project to practice basic wire wrapping skills!
We have used our fuchsia pink banded agate beads which are great for adding a pop of colour. If you like the design but fancy using an alternative gemstone, browse our huge collection of gemstone beads. Remember to ensure your wire size is appropriate for the beads you are using. In this project, we have used 0.8mm wire.
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
1. Firstly, cut approximately 45cm of leather cord.
2. Next, take about 10cm of 0.8mm round wire.
3. Now use round nose pliers to form a loop about 2cm down from one end and secure with a few wire wraps.
4. Start to thread the beads onto the wire. We have used 4 beads for this bracelet (this project also has more wire and beads than you need for just this bracelet design, so you will have some spare to create other designs with).
5. After threading on your beads, leave enough wire on the other end (about 2cm) to make a loop and wrap around the wire neatly to secure.
6. Next, thread the leather through one loop of the bead bar and pull through to the half way point. Simply tie a knot just below the loop. Check the bracelet length around your wrist before cutting. At this point, cut approximately 5cm off each side of the leather and ensured the ends are level.
7. Place the end of the leather onto a box cord end and simply fold over the sides with pliers to secure in place. Repeat for the other loose end.
8. Twist open a jump ring and thread it through the loops on the box ends. Whilst open, catch in the loop of the carabiner clasp and twist closed.
Your bracelet is now finished!
