Try mixing bead caps and bead sizes to get different looks. For this design I tried larger bead caps with smaller beads for added dimension.
Unique beads create an eye-catching style in this simple bracelet design. Cynthia paired bead caps and Czech glass beads with coiled wire beads she made herself using Artbeads Designer Wire and the Cobra Coiler. The wire beads bring texture and shine to this bracelet. See more ideas for using coiled wire in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Use the Cobra Coiler to coil 20 gauge Rose Gold Artbeads Designer Wire. When you have about five loops around, trim the wire to create a coiled wire bead. Repeat four times for a total of five coiled beads.
Repeat this pattern four times, then add a bead cap, three Czech glass beads and another bead cap to the strand. String on a crimp tube followed by a jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
