Multi-Strand Bracelet with Purple Fire-Polished and Turquoise CzechMates Beam Beads
designed byCynthia Kimura
Approximate Size6 1/2 Inches
This bracelet reminds me of lavender fields, full of purple and green color!
CzechMates beads feature multiple stringing holes for endless design options. For a simple take, you can use them in multi-strand creations. Cynthia used Beam Beads along with small and sparkling fire-polished beads for a look full of texture and dimension. Discover more ideas for creating simple CzechMates designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut three lengths of jewelry wire each 11 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto one strand, and then bring the strand through one of the jump rings attached to your clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Attach each strand to each remaining jump ring in the same manner.
Add a TierraCast antique rhodium 4mm beaded bead cap to each strand. Then, add three 2mm fire-polished beads in purple iris to each strand. Add a bead cap to each strand. Add three CzechMates 3-hole 10mm opaque turquoise Picasso Beam Beads to all three strands. Repeat this bead pattern eight times, leaving off the last three Beam Beads.
Attach a jump ring to each loop on the other half of your clasp and then use a crimp tube to crimp each strand of jewelry wire to each corresponding jump ring on the clasp.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
