How To Make A Spring Stacking Layer Bracelet


This bracelet is inspired by spring time blooms and is guaranteed to uplift any outfit with its vibrant colours & happy vibes! Multiple layers make it appear like a complex piece, but in fact it is super simple as they simply stack on top of one another. Here is how we made it:

Measure your wrist & cut a piece of jewellery making jelly cord to length, allowing extra for tying the knot upon completion.

Thread a mixture of bugle beads, pearl seed beads, sequins & handmade clay flower beads onto the cord.



Tie a knot at the end & snip off the excess. For a more professional finish, use crimp beads. Thread both ends of the cord through the crimp so they are over lapping. Then flatten it with pliers to secure the cord. It makes working with slippy cords easier to handle & more secure.

--------------------------------------------------------

Top Tips:

Try and keep to a few colours to give the piece a feeling of unity. Here we have selected red, pink, orange & yellow with a hint of green.

Create some plain beaded layers too, to help the beautifully embellished layers take centre stage.
