3 Easy Beaded Bracelet Tutorials

By on Wednesday, November 07, 2012 5 Comments

There is few things more satisfying than completing a lovely beaded bracelet quickly.  Getting something to wear in short order is a good thing.  So here are 3 pretty but easy beaded bracelets to try.


Artbeads' Golden Grace bracelet tutorial (shown above) is a lovely vision of Swarovski crystals and pearls.  I must say Swarovski faux pearls are just lovely to work with.

Right angle weave and Swarovski crystals are also the basis of Shireen's pretty beaded bracelet tutorial over on her blog, The Blue Brick.  She used faceted rounds.  Blue must be her favorite color!


A little more challenging but really satisfying is the mandala Retro beaded bracelet tutorial by a Chinese blogger.  Google Translate cannot translate anything but Simplified Han Chinese so you'll have to rely on the pictures.  Picking your own choice of beads and colors is a lot more fun than straight copying.

  1. Love Artbead's Swarovski crystals and crystal pearls bracelet. It looks like a simple piece that would go together without frustrations.
    I agree with you regarding the Crystal Pearls, they are lovely to work with plus they come in so many colors and sizes, which is wonderful. :)

  2. The only problem I have with them is I cannot collect them all - so many delicious colors to choose from! Need to win the lottery!

  3. Oh my goodness, Pearl! These are stunning. Though I am too busy right now, your blog is most certainly going to inspire me to start beading at my earliest convenience!!!

  4. Many readers bookmark posts so they can return to them when they have the time. Pity we cannot petition for a 48 hour day or lessen our sleep requirements.
