The pink daisy bracelet is made with glass bugle beads, size 11 seed beads and wooden beads. It fastens with a concealed magnetic clasp.
You can buy the materials here.
I have included full instructions that are illustrated with diagrams. You will be working in a combination of peyote stitch, ladder stitch and brick stitch. The project uses basic variations of each stitch.
If you feel you might need some extra help with any of the techniques, then you can find some free tutorials to download in the free tutorials section on this website (just check the menu at the top of the page).
You can adjust the pink daisy bracelet length to fit any wrist size. The pattern includes instructions to guide you through altering the length of your daisy bracelet.
About the Pink Daisy Bracelet design
I created this design when I was looking for a way to help my students with brick stitch. I found that the ladder stitch base that is a standard way of beginning brick stitch, could be created very easily with bugle beads.
This also added to the interest in the design, by creating a different look and texture to the seed beads. I wanted to create a daisy theme. So I used little daisy motifs in the brick stitch sections on the bracelet.
I am also a lover of creating clasps that complement a design. So, I created a custom daisy clasp for my pink daisy bracelet. This involves beading over wooden beads. This structure conceals a secure magnetic clasp. So, this makes the bracelet very secure to wear and means it can easily be sized to fit around the wrist snugly.
I called this my ‘Pink Daisy bracelet’ because of the colours I chose. But of course, you can make this in any colouring you like. I recommend using the same colour bugle beads as you use for the centres of the daisies. This helps to create some ‘links’ in the design.
