Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Bracelet

Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Bracelet

Here is another free beading pattern for you to enjoy making! This is a little more difficult the pattern is easy to follow step by step. This design uses a basic right angle weave technique to create a stunning Swarovski crystal beads and pearl bracelet. It is a long pattern and you can find step by step photos here on the Blog.

You need:

A packet of Size 15 seed beads

Small pearls

Large pearls

Small Swarovski crystal beads

Large Swarovski crystal beads

Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Bracelet
Cut a length of Nymo beading thread approximately 1.5metres or as long as you are comfortable using. Condition the thread with a thread conditioner and thread it onto a beading needle. About 15 cm from the end attach a bead stopper.

This free beading pattern is a right angle weave, and each bead always has a seed bead either side of the crystal or pearl. So always add on bead “units” for example, one seed beads one crystal (or pearl) then one seed bead, every time you need to add on beads.

This pattern is one size fits all, extension chain allows for sizing.

Thread on 4 small crystal units: 1 seed bead, 1 crystal, 1 seed bead, 4 times.

Allow beads to fall down near your bead stopper. Pass needle through the bottom of the first small crystal unit, then pull thread so beads form a circle, or a square. Tie a small knot between the seed beads where your needle is now, and then continue to pass the needle through the next small crystal unit. The needle always comes out of the bottom crystal or pearl unit ready to add the next circle.

Add on 1 small crystal unit, 1 small pearl unit and 1 small crystal unit. PNT next small crystal unit (on the circle you have just added on) then through small pearl unit.

Add on 3 small pearl units, units, then PNT existing small pearl unit on the previous circle, and then pull thread up. You will now have 3 adjoining circles. PNT next two small pearl units.

Add on 3 small crystal units and PNT small unit from previous circle. Then PNT next two small crystal units. Now there are 4 adjoining circles.

Continue adding on units until you have 3 complete small pearl unit circles. Now you are going to add in the feature piece of this bracelet, which is just the same pattern, but with larger beads.

Add, seed bead, small crystal, seed bead,

seed bead, large crystal, seed bead,

seed bead, small crystal, seed bead. Pass the needle through the small pearl unit from the previous circle, then through the next small crystal unit you have just added. This reinforces you work as you go.

Next add, seed bead, large crystal, seed bead,

seed bead, large pearl, seed bead,

seed bead, large crystal, seed bead, PNT.

Next add seed bead, large pearl, seed bead,

seed bead, large pearl, seed bead,

seed bead, large pearl, seed bead, PNT.

Add, seed bead, large crystal, seed bead,

seed bead, large crystal, seed bead,

seed bead, large crystal, seed bead, PNT.

Add, seed bead, small crystal, seed bead,

seed bead, small pearl, seed bead,

seed bead, small crystal, seed bead, PNT.

Continue adding bead units to match the other side of your bracelet. You should end up with:

3 small pearl circles with small crystals either side

I large pearl circle with large crystals either side

3 more small pearl circles with small crystals either side

Please look at the step by step photos to help you.

When you get to the end of the bracelet, exit your thread through the end small crystal unit, then add 5 seed beads, a parrot clasp, then 5 seed beads, PNT end small crystal unit, then back through seed beads and parrot clasp twice more.

PNT end small crystal unit, and then simply run your thread through to the other end of the bracelet in an “S” pattern. This is very important to secure the unit through your bracelet.

When you get to the end, again exit through the end small crystal unit, add on 5 seed beads, and extension chain, and then 5 seed beads. PNT end small crystal unit, then back through seed beads and extension chain twice more, PNT end crystal unit and into the bracelet.

Exit needle through a complete unit.

Tie a small knot or half hitch between two seed beads. PNT a couple more units. Tie another knot and repeat this procedure a few times. Then simply cut off excess thread. Remove bead stopper from tail end of thread and do the same with the tail end. This reinforces your work as well as securing you ends.

I hope you have enjoyed making this bracelet using Swarovski crystal beads.

    Thankyou Sharon, I love your work. I too am disabled, Mabeleane, after a teriible car accident. My left arm was paralysed after a broken neck damaged my spinal cord, luckily I regained the use of it. The nursing staff suggested beading to help me regain my fine motor skills, and I fell in love with it. Aren’t Swarovski crystals beautful!
    I have patterns to share, if you are interested.
    thanks again

  7. Dani Says:

    Thank you so much for publishing this design, I’ve thinking of what to do with the swarovski beads I have got. You have got me inspired, to be honest I didn’t think you could use thread for swarovski.

    I look forward to more designs, I want to start making presents for friends whose birthdays are coming up in the next few months. Added to that it will keep me busy.

    Hello,

    I found your blog on google. I am interested in crystal beading work as well. This project is a new style for me, it’s look classic. What size of the beads and pearls? I would make along to this pattern someday. Thank you so much for the good post.

  10. Tami Says:

    Sharon, I too am new to beading, very new. You mention a term in your pattern that I have run across before that I cannot find a definition for… What exactly is PNT? also, if you can answer that, maybe you can tell me what PNBT means?… I know it is probably something very simple but I am clueless. Thanks for your help.

  11. sharonw Says:

    Thanks Tami for your interest.

    PNT means pass needle through
    PNBT I guess means pass needle back through
    Hope that helps! happy beading

    Hi to all you great ladies! Thank you Sharon for the lovely pattern. I love to hear when beading and/or being creative is helpful and inspiring……
    Keeping busy beading & planning what jewelry gift we’ll make for someone or ourselves is such good therapy! Not to mention playing with all those beautiful beads that give us limitless ways to put jewelry together.
    I’m addicted to them! Hope you all have a great week!
