Black 2 Strand Bicone Bracelet: Project Instructions

Posted by Eureka! Beads on 20th Mar 2019

This super simple tigertail bracelet uses black bicone glass crystals and small gold coloured metal beads to complete the look. Follow our instructions as you work with tigertail wire, crimps and a magnetic clasp.

MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • 38 x 6mm bicone glass crystals
  • 36 x 3mm plain metal beads
  • 1 magnetic clasp with loops
  • 2 spiky decorative metal beads
  • 2 small tube crimps
  • 40cm tigertail

TOOLS REQUIRED

  • Wire Cutters
  • Crimping Pliers

INSTRUCTIONS

Pick up the tigertail and thread through the loop on one end of the magnetic clasp. Continue threading until the magnetic clasp sits halfway along the strand. Fold the strand of tigertail in half, and thread a small tube crimp over the two strands and up to the magnetic clasp. Crimp down securely.

Thread a spiky decorative metal bead over the two strands, so that it sits up tight next to the magnetic clasp, hiding the crimp. Now, separate the two strands, and thread onto each strand:

  • a 6mm bicone glass crystal
  • a plain metal bead

Repeat this pattern on both strands, until you have 18 bicone glass crystals on each strand. Finish with one more bicone glass crystal on each strand.

Bring the two strands together again, and thread on a spiky decorative metal bead, followed by a small tube crimp. Thread on the other loop in the magnetic clasp, then take the tigertail back through the crimp. Pull up tightly, squish down the crimp and cut off any excess tigertail. Your bracelet is now ready to wear!
