The trapezoid bead is a fun shape to play with. It makes even the simplest stringing projects look ornate!
TierraCast offers beautiful components to make your jewelry designs stand out. The Make a Statement collection is full of eye-catching designs guaranteed to stand out. This bracelet features the geometric trapezoid bead from the collection. The angled shape of this bead is a fun contrast to the rounded gemstones. You can see more inspiration from TierraCast's Make a Statement Collection in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a length of jewelry wire 3.5-4 inches longer than the desired length for a bracelet. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto the end of the wire followed by half of the TierraCast rhodium-plated pewter toggle set. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Hide the crimp with a sterling silver 3mm crimp cover.
Repeat this pattern seven times, then add a 3mm rondelle to the end of the strand.
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!
