Bracelets are made from a mix of rocaille seed beads and faceted beads threaded onto a piece of beading wire. Tassels made from mercerised cotton yarn are attached for further decoration. The fastener is a lobster claw clasp, decorated with a pendant.

How to do it
Guide step 1
1.
Thread rocaille seed beads and faceted beads onto a piece (35 cm long in this example) of beading wire according to your taste.
Guide step 2
2.
Thread a small crimp bead onto the beading wire. Feed the beading wire around a round jump ring and then through the crimp bead. Tighten – close to the round jump ring – and squeeze the crimp bead with flat nose pliers to keep it in place.
Guide step 3
3.
A tassel: Wrap mercerised cotton yarn several times around a piece of card measuring approx. 2 cm.
Guide step 4
4.
Remove the yarn from the piece of card and attach to an opened round jump ring which is then closed using two pliers.
Guide step 5
5.
Wrap one of the long ends around the bundle, close to the round jump ring. Now tie it to the other end with a couple of knots. Trim the two ends at the same length as the bundle and cut it open to make a tassel.
Guide step 6
6.
Attach the tassel onto the bracelet before closing the bracelet. Finish by threading a crimp bead onto the wire and a lobster claw clasp (same procedure as in step 2). Tighten the wire so the the beads are closed and squeeze the crimp bead flat.
Guide step 7
7.
As an extension and as extra decoration, make a small chain from round jump rings, by opening them, putting them together and closing them. Attach a small pendant to the outer round jump ring and attach the finished chain at the opposite end of the lobster claw clasp.
