Today’s 10-minute bracelet project is sponsored by Consumer Crafts.
Do you love accessories you can make in 10 minutes or less? Do you love bracelets that sparkle and shine? Do you want to learn how to make a glittering tube bead bracelet today? Oh my goodness, please say yes! Hehe.
I really love how this design came together, and I’m teaming up with the Crafty Hangouts ladies as part of a 10-minute-or-less quick craft series, brought to you on video. (Be sure to check out the CraftyHangouts.com site this month to see all the fabulous video tutorials!) Consumer Crafts has sponsored this series, which is a company I LOVE for basic craft supplies of all kinds. I’ll leave links to the products I picked up on their site below, to help you shop so that you can make this quick bracelet at home!
- 1mm leather cord (I used 2 yards here)
- Two silver or gold tube beads
- Five 12mm acrylic glitter beads (I used brown and silver for these bracelets, but any color would be pretty!)
- Two 3-hole spacer beads
- 5mm glue-on end caps
- Two 7mm jump rings
- 12mm lobster clasp
- Four 1.3mm crimp beads
- Super New Glue
- Jewelry pliers
I’ll give you a quick description, and then leave you the video below to walk you through it! For this project, you’ll be working with 6 cords about 7 inches long (I always cut mine longer as I’m working, but if you’re running short on cord, it’s okay to work with shorter cord since we’re not doing much beading). You’ll be separating these 6 cords into 6 parts, and stringing tube beads onto the outer parts and glitter beads on the center part. The 3-hole spacers and the crimp beads secure your work onto the top of the bracelet, and you glue on the ends. Let me show you more!
Aside from a minute or so for letting your glue dry, you can see this whole bracelet was assembled in under 10 minutes… which leave you time to make MORE, if you want! Or, check out my other quick craft video from last week: the 2-Minute Easter Jellybean Lamp.
Thanks for joining me today!
