How to create a Pure Decadence Bracelet

Pure decadence bracelet made from gems of distinction and sterling silver

Step One

Cut a 10 inch piece of beading thread, add on a crimp bead and a jumpring, then feed the thread back through the crimp bead and gently pull so it traps the jumpring in place. Secure the crimp with crimping pliers and trim away any excess thread.

Step Two

Hide the crimp bead with a crimp cover gently closing it around the crimp bead using Flat Nose Pliers.

Step Three

Thread on 3 Peridot, 1 Stardust Rondelle, 4 Neon Appatite, 1 Stardust Rondelle, 4 Emeralds, 1 Stardust Rondelle, 4 Rubies and another Stardust Rondelle. Then repeat this pattern until you reach the desired length of bracelet.

Step Four

Finish the section by adding a crimp bead and another jumpring. As per steps 1 & 2 feed the thread back through the crimp, gently pull tight to trap the jumpring in place and secure with crimping pliers, hide the crimp with a crimp cover and trim away any excess thread.

Step Five

Make the next section by cutting another 10 inch piece of beading thread, attach it to one of the jump rings as per steps 1 & 2 then thread on your Rubies until they are the same length as your first section. Finish in the same way by adding a crimp bead and loop the thread through the jumpring at the opposite end before passing the thread back through the crimp. Secure with crimping pliers and trim off any excess thread. Hide the crimp with a crimp cover.

Step Six

Repeat Step 5 using Neon Appatite Rondelles and the Sterling Silver Wavy Tube Spacers.

Step Seven

Repeat Step 5 using Peridot Cushions.

Step Eight

To complete the bracelet open the jumprings at either end of your bracelet and attach the bolt ring clasp, then close them again to finish.
