designed byBecky Bacus
TechniqueTwo-Part Epoxy Adhesive
Approximate Size6/14 Inches
This bracelet makes me think of fall. When I wear it, I definitely need a pumpkin spice latte in my hand!
Becky created a variation of Cheri's Cotton Candy bracelet using Czech glass Teacup beads for the bead caps. She also made her own custom head pins with Finial beads, for extra fall colors to go along with her Swarovski crystals in rich hues. This design can look so different when you use different colors, so try your own variation for a look that's unique to you. Don't forget to have your 1-Step Looper Pliers handy for making all of the dangles in a flash
Cut 40 pieces of 20 gauge Vintage Bronze Artbeads Designer Wire each approximately 1 ½-inches long.
Glue Finial Beads onto the tips of the wire pieces to create custom head pins using 5-minute epoxy adhesive. Since the adhesive dries in 5 minutes, you might want to line up the Finial colors with the wires beforehand so you can quickly glue them. If you would like a longer working time, try our Swarovski crystal two-part epoxy glue in the Perfect Product Pairings below. Here are the colors and counts of each Finial bead we used for our custom head pins:
15 head pins with the Czech glass metal luster ruby half-drilled 2mm round Finial Beads
8 head pins with the Czech glass peridot antique shimmer half-drilled 2mm round Finial Beads
4 head pins with the Czech glass tanzanite antique shimmer half-drilled 2mm round Finial Beads
13 head pins with the Czech glass Rosaline antique shimmer half-drilled 2mm round Finial Beads
Add a Swarovski 10mm round pearl in Crystal Velvet Brown to a ruby head pin, followed by a Czech glass 2x4mm ColorTrends Saturated Metallic Russet Potato Teacup Bead. Repeat twice for a total of three 10mm pearl dangles.
Add a Swarovski 8mm round pearl in Crystal Velvet Brown to a Rosaline head pin. Repeat four times. Add an 8mm pearl to a peridot head pin. Repeat two times. You should have a total of eight 8mm pearl dangles.
Add a Swarovski 6mm round pearl in Crystal Velvet Brown to a tanzanite head pin, followed by a Czech glass 2x4mm matte metallic antique gold Teacup Bead. Repeat three times for a total of four 6mm pearl dangles.
Add a Swarovski 6mm Bicone in Light Colorado Topaz Shimmer to a peridot head pin. Repeat five times. Add a 6mm Bicone to a Rosaline head pin. You should have a total of seven 6mm bicone dangles.
Add a Swarovski 6mm faceted round in Crystal Copper to a ruby head pin, followed by a Czech glass 2x4mm luster rose gold topaz Teacup Bead. Repeat five times for a total of six Crystal Copper dangles.
Slide a Swarovski 4mm bicone in Light Colorado Topaz Shimmer onto any of the remaining head pins. Repeat 12 times for a total of 13 4mm bicone dangles.
Use the 1-Step Looper Pliers to make a simple loop at the top of the beads for all of your dangles.
Attach the 15x8mm antique copper-plated trigger clasp to one end of the bracelet using a jump ring. Then, link three or more jump rings together in a chain and attach this to the other end of the bracelet.
