Item details

Carol's Bracelet is named for a friend who loves delicate, sparkly jewelry. This definitely fits the bill! Absolutely loaded with crystals, this little feminine bracelet will shine and glitter all night and is so light on your arm you may forget you're wearing it. Beautiful 2mm Czech pearls (or freshwater seed pearls!) set off the crystals and present them elegantly, while 2mm crystals (or size 11 seed beads in a complementary color) surround each of the chatons.

My tutorial shows step by step how to make this dainty bracelet. They work up very quickly, and would make lovely last minute gifts. They're quite addictive! This is a comprehensive tutorial, with full color photos and detailed instructions.

NOTE- a variation is possible using size 8mm Chatons rather than the 6mm ones - if you'd like to see how that works and how it varies from the pattern listed here, please visit my blog for the post:

Techniques used include right angle weave and picots, and bezeling a chaton. This tutorial is suitable for intermediate beaders, I wouldn't recommend it as a beginning project. Materials needed for these include size 11 and size 15 seed beads, 2mm pearls, 29SS 6mm chaton crystals, 4mm bicones, 2mm crystals (these can be replaced with size 11 seed beads if needed) and a single strand clasp of your choice.
