Mystic Beaded Bracelet

Mystic Beaded Bracelet

Hello Everyone!
This week is so exciting! I finally made another beaded bracelet and I know all of you are so happy and excited as well. It's been awhile since I didn't touch my beads and while doing a laundry the other day. I was like (inspired attack) all of the sudden to make a bracelet, and that's what I did! After doing laundry, the bracelet is DONE as well, very productive day indeed.
As you can see on the picture above, I was all over with my new bracelet. I was little skeptical at first when I used 3 different colors of beads but it work just fine! and the embellishment on the side on the bracelet just adds up the perfection. The hanging chain on the bracelet is FUN, I actually loved it- but you can totally skip the chain if you don't like it. I just think its trendy and cute! ( hahaha) It's also a perfect to put your unused beads and come up with colorful, dainty and trendy bracelet. Not to mention that your friends will going to love it. So perfect for gifts and souvenir. Do you agree?.. I do! keep in mind that Christmas is coming up!:) wink-By the way, the inspiration behind Mystic Beaded Bracelet was inspired by Beadifulnights on Youtube check them out! To give you more inspiration check some of my beads creation HERE:) You might find you really love! Are you inspired and excited to make some bracelets? If YES! then what are we waiting for? Let's start... and ENJOY!


 Notes: Used whatever beads you have in hand, but if you do have a crystals beads. I highly recommend to used those. I pick 3 colors in this project but you can totally personalized the color of beads the way you like it. Enjoy!

Materials:
(20) 4mm Bi-cone- I choose blue, light blue and light pink
(5) 2mm Bi-cone- Light pink
(17) 6 E beads- silver
Black and Rainbow colors 11 knot seed beads
9 Feet 8lbs/fishing line
2 clasp
Chain- optional



Instructions:
1.) Slide (6) know seed-bead and make a loop . if your using a clasp this is the perfect time to slide it along with seed bead. Slide the string through 11 seed-bead and make it tighter and stronger.
2.) Slide 11 knot seed-bead and crisscross on 6 E beads. Slide 2 (11 knot seed-bead) on both string and crisscross.
3.) Slide another 11 knot seed bead on both string. Crisscross on the bi-cone. Tighten up the bracelet.
4.) Once the string is tight. Go ahead and slide (1) 11 knot seed bead and bi-cone on each string and criss cross on the bi-cone.
5.) Add 2 (11 knot) seed-bead crisscross on 4mm bi-cone and add 2 more seed-bead. It should create a nice on the front ( see the photo above for reference.
6.) Exit the string on the bi-cone and into the bi-cone on the very top.
7.)Repeat the process (2-6) until you have enough length for your bracelet. I did 5 circles on mine but I also added some chains and clasp to make it longer.
8.)Just simply add 11 knot seed-bead around the bracelet for embellishment, and start tighten the bracelet. Run the string all beads and start tighten it.
9.) Add the clasp and chain. Add your personalized twist on the bracelet. Done!


I'm loving my new bracelet and I'm happy that I have another beaded bracelet added into my collections. It's cute and trendy that will add perfection to whatever clothes your wearing.

    1. Just throw my dirty clothes in washer, make the bracelet. Then, I put all the wet clothes onto the dryer and let the dryer do all the work. By the time the clothes are DONE, I finished the bracelet.:)
