3 Unique Wristlet Designs

If you haven’t by now seen the ever-so-popular Wristlet, let us introduce you to your new best friend. Wristlets have been saving keys and keychains for months now - it’s usually a simple strand of 19mm beads pulled tightly together in a circle and finished off with the cutest keyring and clip to make attaching your keys a breeze.

We love them here at Cara Supply - every single one of our girls working here has one! They’re so handy to hang up keys at home, find them in a deep dark purse, and almost impossible to lose once on your wrist! 

Silicone Bead Wristlet Tutorials - 3 Unique Designs

We know you love them too - we’ve seen the beautiful Wristlets you design and sell or make for yourselves! But of course, we always love shaking things up. A simple strand of 19mm beads is beautiful, but what if you could do it differently?

We decided to do some crafting ourselves and came up with three different ways to shake up your Wristlet designs!

3 Unique Wristlet Designs - Cara & Co DIY Tutorials

Triple Strand Wristlet

A wristlet doesn’t need to be thick and chunky - if detailed and dainty is your jam, this wristlet look is for you! 

Supplies Needed:

Step by Step

1. Trim your cording and lightly melt the ends with your lighter to make threading beads easier.

2. Taking your cording, thread on your 19mm bead and slide it to the halfway point on your cording.

3. On one side of the 19mm bead, thread on 35x 9mm beads in one color. Push them up to the 19mm bead at the halfway point on your cording. Thread on your keyring and clasp as well.

4. On the end of the string you’ve been working with, thread on your crafting needle. Push the needle through the opposite side of your 19mm bead to create a round loop. Pull the string through so that the beads have been pulled taut.

5. Taking the other cording end (which will be a touch longer than the one you just worked with) string on another 35x 9mm beads in another colour. Make sure to feed this strand through the keyring that your other bead strand is already going through.

6. Thread your crafting needle on the string you’re working with and pass it the opposite way through the 19mm bead again. You should have three strings passing through this bead now. Pull your strings to tighten up the loops (not so tight that the beads misshapen, but until they’re snug against each other).

7. Take the end you’ve been working with and thread on 17x 9mm beads in your third color. On the other string end thread on your last 18x 9mm beads, passing the strand through the keyring.

8. Tie the two ends together in a double knot. Ensure that your tension is the same as the other strands you’ve done. Lightly run your lighter flame over the knot to ensure that the cording will hold.

9. Thread on your crafting needle to one cording end and pass the needle through one of the neighboring beads beside the knot. Gently pull your knot into the center of the 9mm bead to hide it.

There’s no step by step for this design! If you’ve followed our tutorial on how to make a simple beaded Wristlet (click here to see it again!), all that’s different with this design is playing around with the shapes and variations! For this design we chose 30 x Coin Beads and 10 x 15mm Round Beads.

Step by Step

1. Trim your cording and lightly melt the ends with your lighter to make threading beads easier.

2. Thread on to your cording a double hole bead, followed by 5 x 9mm beads. Do this a total of 6 times. You should have 6 double hole beads and 30 x 9mm beads.

3. Thread on your keyring. Take both ends and tie them off together in a double knot. Your loop should be tight enough to bring the beads together without seeing any cording in between.

4. Run your lighter over the knot to secure it. Thread your crafting needle on to your cording. Push your needle through the double hole bead and gently pull the knot inside the double hole bead. Trim and melt the ends to hide the knot.

5. Take your second cording length, trim and lightly melt the ends.

6. Thread on your crafting needle to your cording, and pass it through the crossing channel hole of one of your double hole beads. We suggest picking a different bead than the one that you just hid a knot in.

7. Leave about 6” of cording on the one side to tie off with at the end. On the working end of your cording, thread on 5x 9mm beads.

8. Skip down to the next double hole bead and pass your needle through it, moving in the opposite direction that you just came from on the previous bead. Your cording will be weaving back and forth through the double hole beads.

9. Once through, add on another 5x 9mm beads, and pass the needle and cording through the next double hole bead in the opposite direction.

10. When you get to the keyring, make sure that your weaving also passes through the keyring hole.

11. You should end up with two strands coming out on the same sides of your design. Add 5x 9mm beads to one string. Tie off the two pieces together with a double knot.

12. Using your lighter, melt and fuse the double knot. Thread on your crafting needle to one cording end. Pass the needle through the double hole bead beside the knot, and gently pull the knot into the bead to hide it.

13. Trim and melt the ends to keep them from fraying.
