Fairy Hat

by: Pam Kearns

This bracelet was inspired by a very blingy necklace appearing in The Hollywood Reporter. I looked at this and thought bead caps! This version is not as blingy, but it is very supple and textured.

It is done as a standard stringing project with crimps, wire guardians and crimp covers.  After crimping one end, pop on a 6mm bead and a bead cap so that the bead sits in the opening of the bead cap. Add a 3mm bead and alternate bead caps and 3mm beads until you get the length you want, ending with a 3mm bead. This piece uses 32 bead caps and measures 8" with the clasp.

Crimp the end closed and add a jump ring to each end and the lobster clasp to one end.

You can use any style of bead cap you wish but the Woodland Fairy Hat bead caps have a nice ridge that gives a great texture. This style is available in various metal colours so you can really play with the look of the bracelet.

You can do a pair of earrings too by stacking 3 or 4 beads caps and 3mm beads onto a headpin and attaching it to earring wires.

Enjoy!
