Designer Tips

  • These bracelets follow the step-by-step illustrated instructions from Tiffany's 2015 Beaded Infinity Knot Bracelets project in Rings & Things' blog, but updated with new colors, and with tiny faceted gemstones mixed in with the seed beads. One other change, is that Veronica used 6mm gemstone beads at the end, instead of covering the crimp beads with a crimp cover.
  • There's no right or wrong combination -- use 1 or 2 colors, or a whole ombre rainbow!

Tools

  • Nippers or Wire Cutters
  • Crimping Pliers
  • Round-Nose Pliers
  • Chain-Nose Pliers

Optional Supplies:

  • Veronica used 2 6mm sunstone gemstone beads for the ends of the pink bracelet, but those aren't always available, so she says that 6mm Vintage Rose Swarovski crystals would also work great.
