I am in no way a professional jewelry designer.

I know that I love Swarovski Hotfix crystals, so when I saw the beads on another womans wrist and saw how the sparkled! I had to carry them. They sparkle just like the hotfix. Maybe even more, because your wrist is always moving!!

Here's a very simple method:

I found some elastic string in Joanns, (in the jewelry making section) that I just strung the beads on, then made a knot.( get the thinnest elastic string you can find)

Then I wanted to do a bit more, and I found the method below. Its called "Weaving beads".

Lots of fun with dramatic resuts!!!

Quick and easy too!!!

 I started with a pillow. I stuck a regular straight pin through a gold ring. ( These are available at most arts and crafts store. I found mine in Joanns). The pin will help hold your work in place

 

For this bracelet I used size .015 inch gold colored beading wire. You can use any beadding wire. ( Make sure it looks thin!)

 

I used a 24inch piece of wire. Fold it in half and string it through the ring. Then wrap  wire through the ring two or three times, like this:

You now have two tails hanging from the ring

 Take each tail and string one Swarovski bead onto each tail.

Then push the beads upward.

After placing one Swarovski bead onto each tail, I added a round gold plated bead onto one of the strings. ( guess where I found the round gold bead?, I'll give you a hint, it starts with "J"!!) It doesn't  matter which tail.

You will then take the opposite tail and string it through the same round gold plated bead. But you will string the second tail from the oppositedirection.

Pull on both tail to tighten your "weave"

Continue in any color pattern you desire.

I used clear, round gold, violet, round gold, then rose, round gold.

When you have reached your desired size you can attach a clasp according to the clasp directions. ( also at Joanns)

 Imagine what would happen if you used a bugle bead ( a long bead) instead of a round bead????
