Hidden Treasure Beaded Bracelet Tutorial – GemDuo Beads and 6mm Crystals

Watch the Video

Hey everyone! In today’s video I will show you how to make a beaded bracelet, inspired by the contents of the recent BeadingSchool Academy bi-monthly subscription box. The example in blue, white, and silver includes all materials directly from that box, which was themed Thetis’s Treasure. I’ve included several other colorways to show how this design can take on different appearances, depending on what combinations are used. BeadingSchool has all of these materials in tons of color and finish options, so have fun browsing their site for more!
