These Beaded Friendship Bracelets Define #SquadGoals

Your grownup friends love friendship bracelets too. Trust us — as experienced DIY gift-givers, we know. However, they may not want to wear them in the shower for six months straight anymore, so we came up with a super easy seed bead design to serve the same purpose in a shiny new way!

We found these must-have little sequin beads in a few cool colors and decided to turn them into a Seed Bead Bracelets Kit! Each kit makes a set of five bracelets for you to give your bffs or stack up for yourself! We won’t tell if you do ;)

Materials:

– seed beads

– sequin beads

– jewelry wire

– jump rings

– lobster clasps

– 2-in-1 jewelry plier/cutter

(or get everything HERE in our kit!)

Instructions:

1. Cut a piece of wire 8 inches or so with your plier/cutter and twist one end around a jump ring.

2. String seed beads onto your piece of wire by sticking the loose end into the tube of beads.

3. When you have enough beaded wire to go half way around your wrist, string on three sequin beads.

4. String more seed beads onto the other half of your wire. We used a few different colors in one strand.

5. When your bracelet is long enough to fit your wrist, twist the loose end around another jump ring.

6. Open up one of the jump rings with your pliers, string on a lobster clasp and close back up.

Grab a kit (including everything pictured above) and start stringing bracelets!

Cut a piece of wire about eight inches long with your plier/cutter and twist one end around a jump ring.

When you have enough beaded wire to go half way around your wrist, string on three sequin beads with one gold bead in between to space them out.

String more seed beads onto the other half of your wire until your bracelet is long enough to fit your wrist. We used two different blues as well as a sprinkling of gold beads to make this particular design.

Once you’ve finished adding beads, twist the loose end of wire around another jump ring. Open up one of the jump rings with your pliers, string on a lobster clasp and close back up.

Easy as pie! We give you enough sequin beads and clasps in our kit to get you through a set of five bracelets to give out to your friends (or keep for yourself), but we guarantee you’ll have extra seed beads and wire to use for more jewelry projects!

We’re loving these stacked up for a serious beaded arm party.
