Easy Braided Seed Bead Bracelet Tutorials

I've covered braiding before for jewelry designs.  But here is one more sweet tutorial.  The tutorial by Allis on her blog, Simply Allis will be useful to beginners. It was inspired by the original tutorial by ECab which was for a necklace and one I featured before.


The basic design is good practice for using clam shell findings which is another reason for featuring this tutorial. It is also great for using up odd beads.  There is no need to stay with a single color scheme either!

Another braided seed bead bracelet tutorial I liked is the one by Erica over at Honestly..WTF.  I love how she modeled several of them for a stacked look!  Small round crystals will look fabulous too!

Two lovely bracelets, one very sophisticated, the other cool and casual but both very pretty and practical.

Though I have a few clam shell bead tips I have a plethora of standard bead tips - hmm I wonder ?

Use them up! A little trickier to get the knots sitting in the cup part but they work well too if you are neat. I like the clam shells because they hide a multitude of sins!
