Beadalon Beading Scissors
One: Tape blank to bench block. Stamp ‘bliss’, alternating placement of letters. Design tip: Start with the ‘i’ in the center and work to both sides. Two: Wipe multi-surface paint on blank. Wipe paint from surface. Three: Place beads on board in a pattern, build beads up to numbers on side to fit your wrist. Add the two numbers together to get the finished length in inches. Our bracelet is 7″ including the clasp. Four: Thread wire into crimp bead. Thread wire back through clasp end and back into crimp tube. Hold wires uncrossed to crimp. Check out this video to learn how to crimp correctly!
Five: Finish bracelet with crimp bead attached to jump ring. Design tip: Make sure bracelet is rounded to allow a little space between your beads, this keeps the bracelet from being too stiff when worn. Six: Attach finished bracelet to bar side of toggle clasp with a second jump ring. This makes it easy for the bar to fit into the circle element of the clasp. Seven: Get your yarn and mini-tassell tool ready! Eight: Wrap the yarn around the second notch on the tassel tool as in photo.
Nine: Follow instructions for tassel tool. Instead of using yarn to tie off the top and bottom, we’re using a large jump ring and wire. Thread jump ring into top of tassel. Wrap wire tightly several times around center of tassel. Cut bottom of tassel with scissors into fringe. Side tassel from tool. Use scissors to even tassel ends. Ten: Finish wrapping tassel tightly with wire, cut off excess. Tuck ends into tassel with chain nose pliers. Eleven: Attach tassel and tool to circle side of toggle using a smaller jump ring as in picture. Twelve: Make more!
That’s it, fun, fast and fabulous DIY Tassel and Stamped Charm Bracelets, make an arm full!
