Want to make a beaded bracelet by yourself ?
Well, you've come to the right place! As a general rule of thumb, you have to remember that most beaded wrist bracelets are 7-9 inches in length. However, they can be made any length you desire.
Also, if you would like to take a modern twist on your beaded bracelet and make it an anklet instead, add 2-4 inches to whatever length you want. Now that you've got that down, I'm going to tell you how to make your first perfect beaded bracelet.
All you have to do is follow the following instructions.
Cut your wire. There's no right or wrong brand you can use as far as wire goes, just make sure that it's suitable for jewelry making. Once you cut your wire, you should make sure that there is enough length for the bracelet, plus an additional 3 or 4 inches. The reason why I say that you should have an additional couple of inches is just to be on the safe side. You don't want to get all the way to the end of your bracelet and find that you don't have enough room, do you?
