How to instructions

  • 1

    Thread a beading needle with a piece of beading thread. String on 2 DropDuo beads through the narrow end of the beads. Then string on 1 Miyuki Delica bead and 2 more DropDuo beads. Continue adding beads until you have 12 DropDuo and 6 Delica beads on the thread. Double-knot the thread ends together, so that the beads form a tight circle.

    Run the thread through the outer hole of the DropDuo beads along the entire outer round, with a Miyuki Drop bead between each DropDuo bead. Now the entire beaded circle is complete. Make two identical beaded circles if you are making earrings, and five identical beaded circles if you are making a bracelet.

    Earring hook: String on 3 Delica beads, then 1 Miyuki Drop bead, then 9 Delica beads. Thread the needle through the last 3 beads to create a bead loop. String on one Miyuki Drop bead and then 3 Delica beads. Secure the thread by threading it around the beaded circle. Attach a jump ring and an earring hook with flat-nosed pliers. Open and close the jump rings sideways.

    Bracelet: Sew the beaded circles together with 2 DropDuo beads between each one. To make the ends: String on 3 Delica beads, then 1 Miyuki Drop bead, then 9 Delica beads. Thread the needle through the last 3 beads to create a bead loop. String on one Miyuki Drop bead and then 3 Delica beads. Secure the thread by threading it around the beaded circle. Attach a jump ring to one end and a clasp to the other using flat-nosed pliers. Open and close the jump rings sideways.

Combine different kinds of lovely glass beads to make beautiful, personalised jewellery! We’ve made matching earrings and a bracelet with DropDuo, Miyuki Delica and Miyuki Drop beads. Make a beaded flower-shaped circle and then sew multiple beaded flowers together to make a bracelet. You can adjust the length of the bracelet by using more or less beads at the clasps.
