Does anyone know where I could find directions on making a mother's bracelet? I'd like to make one for my best friend and one for my godson's mother as mother's day presents. Please share if you do. Thanks!

Here is a picture of one. They can be done in one strand or more than one strand, you usually put names of their children on it.

Beaded Bead Bracelet



After showing this bracelet in my Beaded Bead project, I had a number of inquiries about. It. So, here are instructions for making the Beaded Bead Rose Quartz Bracelet. The bracelet is about 7 ½ inches long.

You’ll need:

2 dark cream beaded beads
2 matte dark burgundy beaded beads
3 6mm rose quartz beads
8 4mm rose quartz beads
16 4mm Czech crystal beads
8 size 6 rose pink Czech beads
2 bead tips
1 spring ring clasp
1 jump ring
*approx. 10 inches of Soft Touch size .010
round nosed pliers
flat/bent nosed pliers
wire cutters
corsage pin
glue

*Size .010 beading wire is thin but very strong, and I have found it to work well with bead tips. However, you can finish the ends with crimp beads if you prefer.

Note: I have lost the original package that my Delicas came in, so I unfortunately don’t know their original color name. However, after looking in Fire Mountain’s catalog, the closest matching color names are as follows: what I refer to as burgundy looks like their transparent matte finish dark topaz; what I refer to as dark cream looks like their opaque rainbow round beads cream.

1. Tie 3-4 over hand knots at the end of the beading wire, one on to of the other. Use flat pliers to pull knots tight.

2. Use wire cutters to trim the excess wire pat the knots.

3. Insert the other end of the wire through the hole of the bead tip so the knots rest in the shell part. (You can also see some excellent pictures on using bead tips in my Bead Tip Pictorial.)

4. If you want, dab a little bit of glue (super glue works well) on the knot.

5. Use flat nosed pliers to close the shell over the knots.

Thanks Tangee for sharing! You can find lots of beads at Hobby Lobby. Clasps and wire also. Not sure about other stores. Maybe Michaels? :) I don't have one near me so I haven't seen the inside.
