This is my first serious attempt at a beaded piece of jewelry . . . well, besides just stringing one long strand of beads and tying it into a circle. Tongue Made with purple and clear seed beads, silver spacers, and 28 gauge wire.



And up close:



I found a tutorial on the internet about how to make them. Not too bad for a first project, I don't think.

Comments + constructive criticism welcome. Smiley

That is really beautiful! I love the purple and silver together. You did a really great job for a first beading project!

So pretty!  It looks so dainty and delicate...  My first beading projects were all clunky and akward.  This is really quite beautiful.  Wear it proudly!  Wink

Thank you for all the lovely comments. Smiley It's pretty and girly, I love it. (Even though the flash on my camera makes my arms look hairy . . . gross. Tongue)

I couldn't find the tutorial to save my life! But I drew you a picture of how the wire weaves through the beads, hopefully you can figure it out:



**edit: smaller picture. I don't know why it came out so huge.

It's really lovely.  Thanks for the bead tutorial.  I'm really a newbie at beading....so, what did you use/make to connect the purple beads? And what is the clasp?  See?  Really new at beading!

I'm not sure what you mean by connect them - all I used was the 28g wire. It's supposed to be done in two strands, so I cut a super-long piece of wire, folded it over the hoop end of the clasp, then wrapped it around the clasp at the end.

I used a spring ring (one of these: http://www.shopwiki.com/Spring+Ring+Clasp ), which in retrospect was not the smartest thing. I can't put the bracelet on myself, I have to have someone help me. It looks cute though. Smiley
