Susan shows you how to make your own beaded bracelet at home.

Hey there, crafty friends! In this video Susan shows you how to make your own beaded bracelet at home that will have all your friends asking, “Where did you get that?” This project is easy-peasy and perfect for beginners. So grab your tools and let’s get started!

First things first, gather up your supplies. You’ll need some wire (duh!), beads of your choice (Susan is using turquoise), pliers with a cutter, a clasp, and jump rings. Got it? Great!

Now it’s time to get down to business. Take your wire and measure the length around your wrist where you want the bracelet to sit. Don’t forget to add on a little extra so you can wrap it around the clasp and jump rings later.

Once you’ve got your wire cut, now comes the fun part – stringing on the beads! Pick out which ones you want in what order or go crazy like me and just throw them on randomly.

After all of your beads are strung onto your wire, bend both ends into loops with your pliers. Then add one end of the clasp with another looped piece of wire.

Next up is adding on those jump rings! These babies will give you extra security by making sure nothing falls off while you’re wearing them.

Just attach the other end of the clasp with another looped piece of wire after feeding through more jump rings.

Voila! You’ve got yourself a super cute wire beaded bracelet that not only looks great but also holds tons of sentimental value. Next time you’re in the mood to craft and feeling creative, give this project a try! You might just surprise yourself with what you can create.

Q. What kind of wire do I need to make a beaded bracelet?

A: You’ll need some pliable, yet sturdy wire for this project. Look for some malleable stuff at your local craft store – you want something that can hold its shape without snapping when you bend it.

Q: Do I need any special tools to make the bracelet?

A: Yes! You’ll definitely need a pair of needle-nose pliers to twist and turn the wire around those little beads, otherwise things might get pretty tangled up (believe me, I’ve learned from experience!).

Q: Can I mix and match the beads I use in my bracelet?

A: Of course! That’s one of the best parts about making these bracelets in the first place – there are so many different colors, shapes, and sizes of beads out there that you could make a new bracelet every day without running out of options. Just be sure to choose ones that complement each other well – nobody wants a clashing mess on their wrist!

Q: How long does it take to make one of these bracelets?

A: Honestly, it depends on how intricate you want your design to be (and how fast you’re able to thread them onto the wire!). My daughter and I have made some really simple ones before that only took us maybe half an hour total, but we’ve also spent entire afternoons working on more elaborate patterns with multiple strands and fancy clasps.

Q: Are there any mistakes people commonly make when trying to make a wire beaded bracelet?

A: Oh boy, yes. One big mistake is not cutting your wire long enough to accommodate all your beads and clasp; another is underestimating how tight everything needs to be wrapped together so the beads don’t slide around too much or fall off altogether. But with practice comes perfection- pretty soon you’ll be cranking out beautiful bracelets like a pro!
