Cate Bracelet Kit

This intermediate beadwork kit, to make a striking bracelet, makes use of some unusual crystals (designed by Jean Paul Gaultier for Swarovski).

The bezel has been designed to hold the crystals securely but allow them to be the star of the show and shine out with no distractions. Each component, once beaded, is strung on elastic (full & detailed instructions and plenty of elastic are included so you will learn how to use this for a secure finish) to give a continuous look with no visible (when worn) means of connection.

The kit makes a bracelet to fit a wrist up to an 8 ¼ inch/ 21cm in size and instructions are also included on how to use any left-over crystals.The project uses Peyote Stitch and small beads so you must be comfortable with both.

The kits are now available in 3 options: Full Kits, Half Kits and Crystals only. Please note that Half Kits and Crystals Only options are only for anyone who has already purchased a Full Kit - anyone else will have the sale cancelled.

Each Full Kit contains:

  • 15 Swarovski Kaputt crystals 29mm x 11.5mm
  • 35g of Miyuki size 15 seed beads (the metallics are all Duracoats)
  • Beading elastic (enough for multiple projects)
  • Pack of beading needles
  • Beading thread
  • 12-page instruction booklet (paper & digital)

The kits are now available in 6 colour options (all the colours are shown in the photos but please do contact me if you'd like a different one or a special mix made):

    Please note that this will never be available as a pattern. Also please note that the crystals all have slight variations in cut, colour and finish to make them look more natural. They also naturally change colour when used and over time and all colours shown here are just a representation and will look different on every screen.

    I love to support and encourage individuals who make beadwork so please feel free to use anything you make from these instructions or kit as gifts or to sell to support your bead buying habit!
