Soleil Beaded Bracelet Tutorial – Mini Chevron & GemDuo

Watch the Video

Hey beautiful! In today’s tutorial video, I will show you how to make a beaded bracelet using four of the eight contents of the Two-Hole Beads of the Month Club I received in May 2022. The theme I received is called “Morning Rays,” and is full of warm, golden and copper tones. In French, the term “soleil” means sun, which is what inspired the choices for this color palette. I think it also describes the shape of the 2-hole Cab and Piros beads, which adorn the center of each larger beaded component.

About the Soleil Beaded Bracelet

The Soleil bracelet is made up of four larger beaded components, which are created first, then sewn together with a double row of smaller components in between. As usual, with this type of design, feel free to turn the components into coordinating earrings, a pendant, necklace, etc. Additionally, you may alter the length of this bracelet by adding, or removing, the number of beaded components. 

Feel free to use a two-loop slide bar clasp to finish the ends of this bracelet, as shown in the video. Alternately, you could use decorative multi-loop connectors to add additional metallic detail on either side of the clasp. An example of this option is shown on the blue version of the bracelet, at the beginning of the video.
