This is how to make a simple daisy chain bracelet.
Things You'll Need
- small seed beads
- beading thread
- beading needle
Before starting, decide how long the bracelet is to be. For my unusual wrist size, I can make up to an 8" chain to wear and be fine. Most people should be comfortable with a 7-7 1/2" size bracelet and some will likely need a smaller size. Measure the wrist to find out what size it is and make the chain 1/2" to 1" bigger.
First, make the fastening end. Some people make a round ball on one and and loop to hold it together. An easier way is to start out with a fastener, such as a snap. Make sure the thread is looped through at least one hole a few times and possibly even tie an unnoticable knot to make sure it holds.
Start with a single bead, such as a green one. Then sew on four color beads for the bottom part of the flower.
Next add the center bead--yellow, orange, or ivory may be best. Pull the thread through the first flower bead added in the sequence.
Add two more flower beads and pass the needle through the fourth flower bead from the previous step.
Repeat steps 3-5. Measure the bracelet when it comes close to the proper size to see if it will fit. When it does come to a size that will fit, sew on the other snap through one hole like the second step and it should be ready to wear!
Tips & Warnings
- Some variations can be made on the style--there can be more than one bead sewn between the flowers or no beads at all between, just sew the flowers together.
- One can skip snap fasteners if one uses elastic or stretch beading thread and just ties the ends together.
