Keystone Beaded Bracelet Tutorial


Hey beautiful! In today’s beaded jewelry tutorial, I will show you how to make a beaded bracelet pattern, which is inspired by the contents of the Pumpkin Festival Collection by Eureka Crystal Beads. Even if you don’t purchase the entire collection, you can find everything you need from their online shop, in all sorts of colors.

This Keystone Bracelet pattern incorporates Nib-it, SuperDuo, MiniDuo, and Seed Beads. TIP: Alternate two colors of Nib-bit beads for a wavy look. Or, use Nib-bits in all one color, but use a contrasting SuperDuo color to make the center channel stand out. Please see below for the full materials list. Enjoy!

Pattern Inspiration

This bracelet design is inspired by the contents of the Pumpkin Festival Collection by Eureka Crystal Beads. A new collection is released on the first Thursday of each month, and they are full of a high-quality, and inspiring, array of Japanese glass seed beads, Czech glass single and multi-hole bead shapes, Swarovski crystal, and more. These diy jewelry collections have inspired many of my beadweaving designs, and I highly recommend them!
