Beaded Jewelry Basics : Making a Clasped Tigertail Bracelet


O.k., I’m going to show you how to make a
bracelet out of tiger tail; with a clasp. So the first thing you want to do is measure
whoever’s wrist it’s going to go on. And leave about half inch on either end. O.k., so what
you want to do is; you put your crimp bead on first and then whatever clasp you use,
you use the little hole on the end; put the end of the wire back into the crimp bead,
pull it really close but leave enough room that it moves. And then you crimp it with the pliers like
that. And what you want to do is you want to get a bead and put it over the extra wire
that’s sticking out; you don’t want to cut it all the way down because it could come
out of the bead and cover it like that. And then whatever pattern you want to use; pick
it up like a needle or you can use your hands too, like this. I find it easier to use like
a needle. And then when you get to the other end you do the same thing you did at the beginning;
you hoop it into the clasp and crimp the bead. And it should look like this.
