In this topic, we are going to talk about the cheap beads present in the market and how to make ahomemade bracelet from them.

Types of cheap beads:

These were some kind of cheap beads that are present in the market.

Now we will talk about making bracelets with cheap beads and the materials, tools needed for making them are as following:
        String or elastic
        Beads (I prefer acrylic or wooden beads)
        Round nose pliers

Steps to make a glass bead bracelet:

1.    Wrist size:
The user has to measure the wrist size and cut the wire or the string a little bigger than that. As the beads are of cheaper range I prefer elastic of string. Metal wires are not preferred in this case.

2.    Putting beads on the wire:
Now put a clasp on one end of the wire and hold the wire from the second end. Now put beads into the wire and fill it to the length desired. You can put different varieties of cheap beads to give it new look.

3.    Length of bracelet:
The beads should be on the wire for the complete length. There should not be any gap between the beads. But it should not be very much tight.

4.    Tie the wire:
You can give it a square knot like the knot we give to our shoes. Then try to put the knot under a bead hole.

These were the steps that were used to make a bracelet on your own.
