  • 00:00: hi this is julie with beadaholique.com pearl so it's a fun retro color scheme and i'm gonna show you how to make it in a color variation of aqua so all the other components i was saying be have these pretty aqua beads instead of the pink so this is a really fun multi strand bracelet with a toggle clasp so you can see what it will look like on the wrist and this is an exclusive kit
  • 00:30: through beadaholique and you can find it on beadaholique.com along with a bunch of other kids but I want to show you in this video how to make it from start to finish so included in your kit you're going to receive 22 of these pretty little pearl beads you're gonna get six small black beads eight large black beads ten of the aqua beads and five fluted beads which are really these pretty cathedral beads you're gonna get two jump rings a toggle clasp two strand reducers and 35 eye pins so we're going
  • 01:01: to construct this beautiful bracelet in this color scheme with these ingredients and the tools we're going to need is a pair of chain nose pliers a pair of round nose pliers and a pair of cutters and that is it so I'm going to show you how to do this it's actually really easy it's the same technique over and over again so to start we're going to place a pearl bead onto an eye pin just like so just slide it all the way down to the base and then you're going to make a
  • 01:32: simple wire loop right after the bead so you can take your chain nose pliers bend your wire to the side take your round nose pliers grip that wire and then bend the wire up over the top of the round nose pliers rotate and continue bending it where the wires crisscross you're going to take your cutters and snip off any excess wire now
  • 02:04: normally I would say go through right now and clean up your loops make sure that they meet so like you would straighten that loop up but because of the way this is constructed you're going to need to open up all these loops anyways so don't worry about having them perfect right after you make them so for the purl segment you're going to make six of these so again I'm going to show you how to do this I'm actually gonna show you a slightly different way so you saw that I bent the wire with the chain nose pliers before you can also if you're going to be making a lot of these the wire is flexible enough you can just bend it with your finger if you want and
  • 02:36: then it's the same technique from there so you just take your round nose grip it bend the wire up over the top rotate the pliers continue bending where it overlaps snip off the extra wire and put that aside so you want to make six of those one little tip here you'll see that my
  • 03:11: loops are going in opposite directions if that happens just go ahead grip one loop with one pair of pliers grip the other loop with the other pair and twist wire is great because it's flexible of course you don't want to overwork it or do that too many times but one nice twist like that and the wire will be fine alright I made six little pearl segments now I'm going to take these little black beads and do six segments of them the same exact way just put one
  • 03:41: on there either use your fingers or use your pliers to bend your wire to the side grip it up over rotate the pliers pull the wire around snip off the excess same technique over and over again okay so we've got the pearl single pearl
  • 04:15: segment it's done we got the little black bead segments done now we're going to do one that is a pearl a larger black bead and another pearl you see we've got those three then right after the last pearl we're going to make a simple wire loop so see what that segment looks like and so you're going to make a total of
  • 04:45: eight of these all right so we've got the pearl and
  • 05:17: black bead segment we've got eight of those we've got six of the little black beads and we've got six of little pearls now we just need to make the little segments with the fluted black beads and the aqua beads again it's going to be the exact same technique and these each are going to be single bead segments so you just put the black bead onto the eye pin Bend that wire grab it rotate your pliers complete your loop and snip off
  • 05:47: the excess so that's one of that one of the black bead you'll do the other four and then the Aqua is the exact same process of course so just one aqua bead so you do all of those and then I do want to show you one little quick tip too before I do all these so if you don't you've got all these lens here
  • 06:17: you're going to have even more when you finish these if you want to you can grab the tip of the end of the wire bend it around and then go in your chain nose bend that back and you have just made yourself a new eye pin let me show you that one more time take the wire bend it around and then Bend that back and you have a new eye pin so all these little
  • 06:52: scraps can go to good use you can use them for another project but right now I'm going to finish making my beaded segments we've made all of our little segments and now it's time to connect them together and clear off these old wires again don't forget to reuse them so this is the pattern we're gonna follow and we're going to start by making one of
  • 07:22: these side beaded chain segments we're going to follow this pattern here made making one of the side beaded chain segments so we're going to grab our chain nose pliers and grab a pearl because you see we start with a pearl and then we go to a black bead so we're going to take our pliers and we're going to open the simple wire loop on the side of the pearl the same way that you would open a jump ring so you're going to twist it apart and away from each other you're not going to try to pull it apart you're going to twist so you can see
  • 07:52: what that looks like so we're going to link onto it one of the black bead segments and then we're just going to twist it back in place and close it just like a jump ring so moving along you can see that we now need a pearl black bead pearl segment so we're going to open up the simple wire loop on that end slip on to it a simple wire wire loop at the end of the pearl black bead pearl segment and close that link you can see now
  • 08:23: we've got three of these connected together forming a chain we're just going to work our way along so we're going to open up the simple wire loop this case we're going to add an aqua bead and close the loop the other side of the aqua bead loop was already kind of open for us because we didn't really clean up our loops after we made them and we're going to go ahead and add on another pearl black bead pearl segment close the loop go to the other side open
  • 08:58: the loop add an aqua bead close the loop you can see the pattern forming here so you see what we've got so we're up to there so we need to add another pearl black bead pearl segment and another aqua bead
  • 09:30: and another pearl black bead pearl segment see what we've got so now we just need to add one more black bead one more pearl and we've made that entire land there we go and you'll notice with this
  • 10:03: particular design both of the side segments are identical so you'll just make another identical beaded chain segment just like this one there we go I've got two identical now
  • 11:06: so now we just need to make the middle one to do that we're going to take a black bead first open up that simple wire loop place on to it the simple wire loop from a pearl bead segment go to the other side of the pearl open it up then attach the simple wire a simple wire loop at the end of the fluted black bead close the loop go to the other side link on to it and aqua bead close the
  • 11:38: loop make sure you get your loops good and closed and then another black bead see what we've got so far so we've got black bead pearl fluted black bead aqua bead and then another fluted black bead and link onto to another aqua bead another black bead
  • 12:13: and aqua black another aqua and then your final large fluted black bead
  • 12:45: your final pearl bead and your final small black bead there we go so we've got all of our chain segments now so what we have to do is we have to connect them together and
  • 13:15: you're going to do that using a strand reducer you'll see that you have three loops on one side and one loop on the outside so that loop there is going to connect to your clasp and this one here is the three interior ones are going to connect your chain segments together so you're going to go ahead and again open up that simple wire loop that's really the story of this bracelet is simple wire loops so we're going to link on to it the loop on one side of the strand reducer because these are your side
  • 13:50: chain segments and then we just closed up that simple wire loop now we're going to go ahead and attach the middle one same way and then one more end one we are almost done so we're gonna do the exact same process now on the other side make sure that your segments do not
  • 14:21: crisscross you want them to be nice and even so we're going to attach the one that was on the outer edge of this strand reducer to the outer edge loop of the second strand reducer you don't want it too kinked up you want to make sure it's laying nice and flat I've got all of those connected together
  • 14:56: and all you have to do now is add your clasp and for that you're going to use a jump ring you're going to open a jump ring by taking two pliers grabbing it on either side with the slit opening this is an open jump ring at the top you're going to twist the sides apart from each other go ahead link that to that outside loop of the strand reducer place on to it one half of your clasp and then close the
  • 15:27: jump ring by twisting it back in shape and do that with the other side of the clasp on the other side of the bracelet there we go and your bracelet is finished and if you're not familiar with how a toggle clasp works you go ahead and put the bar through the ring and then it holds it in place so this here
  • 15:59: is the Betty bracelet and again is an exclusive kit from beadaholique.com and you can find it online along with other kits as well so I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and check out the other ones that we have for kids techniques and a whole bunch of other projects you
