Here’s a very easy tutorial for making expensive looking golden beaded bangles. All you need are a few supplies and a little patience.
Here are the materials you need:
- 26 GA Gold Wire (Roughly 4 yards)
- Thin Matte Gold Bangel (You can find them here.)
- 3 mm Matte Gold Beads
- Scissors or Wire Cutters
Step 1: Cut your length of 5 mm wire to about 1.5 yards. A little extra length is better because it really needs to be long enough to wrap the bangle and hold all of the beads in place. Start by placing the end of the wire on the inside of the bracelet. Wrap the wire around the bangle twice.
Step 2: Place a bead onto the wire and wrap it over the top and back through the center of the bangle.
When your done wrapping the bead in place it should look like the picture below.
Step 3: Place the next bead on the wire and repeat until you’ve covered the entire bangle. Remember, the beads you have already wrapped in place should be on your right side as you’re working around the bangle. End the bracelet by weaving the end into the previous loops made and trimming any extra length.
Well, that’s pretty much it! I love the way these gold ones look and as you can see they are super easy to make. Now that you know how to make these, go ahead and use your imagination to make any number of different bead color combinations.
