watch the video


In today’s beading tutorial, I will show you how to make a new type of crystal cube tennis bracelet. This design incorporates 6mm crystal cube beads, 8/0 and 11/0 seed beads, and it is totally different than the Crystal Cube Tennis Bracelet Tutorial I brought you back in 2019. Have fun changing up the colors to go bold and bright, or tone it down with an all one color approach! Please see below for the full list of materials. Enjoy!

About the Crystal Cube Tennis Bracelet:

This bracelet design begins with a base of right angle weave beading stitch. 11/0 and 8/0 seed beads are woven together to create square units, which house one cube each. 11/0 seed beads are woven over top, around the cubes, in order to hold them in place.

If you would like to use only 11/0 seed beads in this design. Feel free to replace the three 8/0 seed beads with four or five 11/0 seed beads. The bracelet will still turn out nicely, regardless of which you choose. I happen to like how the larger seed beads differentiate the base of the design. Changing the colors of the seed beads will also alter the appearance. How about using one color 11/0 on the top, and a different color on the bottom? Hmmm….

Do you recognize the 6mm cube beads I shared in Tuesday’s Bead Box Bargains haul? These bracelets contain a mix and match of the 6mm cubes I picked up from their site, as well as cube beads from a Beebeecraft cube bead variety pack. I like mixing in the beads with the AB finish along with the ones that do not have the extra coating. Every turn of the bracelet provides sparkly color-play.
