Create your own bracelet
Colourful bracelets for summer. Who doesn’t want them? The best part is that you can make your own bracelets very easily. With the right tools and some basic tips, you will create the most beautiful bracelets in no time. You don’t have to be a professional to make your own bracelet. With some elastic thread and some beads, you’ll come a long way. In this blog, I will give some inspiration and basic tips to create the prettiest bracelets.
What kind of materials do you need?
The most beautiful thing about making bracelets with beads is that you don’t need many materials. There are a lot of online stores that sell the most beautiful beads and materials to create your own jewellery. To create your own bracelet, three basic items are important: thread (I prefer elastic thread), beads (choose your favourites) and scissors. Easy, right? However, I can imagine that it can be hard to decide what kind of bracelet with beads you want to make. Luckily, you can find a lot of inspiration online. For example on Pinterest or different blogs about DIY jewellery.
Bracelet with letter beads
When you start making a bracelet, start by measuring the elastic thread. It has to fit your wrist and you should keep some extra length to make a knot. Now choose the beads you would like to use. I always start by placing the letter beads in front of me. Then, I choose the other beads I want to use and place them next to the letter beads. My tip: lay the whole pattern of beads in front of you before stringing the beads onto your thread. This reduces the chance that you will make a mistake in the pattern. However, if you think this is nonsense, no problem, we all work the way we do! When all the beads are on the thread, make sure it nicely fits your wrist. If this is the case, tie a knot and you have created a charming bracelet.
Bracelet with wooden beads
Wooden beads exist in different shapes and sizes. Therefore, wooden beads can be used in all your self-made jewellery. Because they have an authentic and natural look, they have the perfect appearance for your vintage look. You have both treated and untreated wooden beads. Besides, wooden beads exist in different colours. This makes your self-made bracelet with wooden beads summer proof. I always like to vary in shapes and sizes of the wooden beads. For example, try to start with bigger wooden beads in the middle of your bracelet and follow them with some smaller wooden beads. This gives a playful effect to your bracelet.
Bracelet with shell beads
Shell beads are getting more popular. Especially the Kauri Shell beads are a must-have for next summer. You can combine the Kauri Shell beads with a leather thread. This gives your bracelet the perfect summer feeling. Next to Kauri Shell beads, there are many different shell beads. I prefer choosing natural colours for my bracelet with shell beads, but there are also many coloured shell beads. In addition, try to vary with different sizes and shapes, as this makes your bracelet more appealing.
Bracelet with Miyuki Delica beads.
Probably my most favourite beads for creating my own bracelets are Miyuki Delica beads. These small beads exist in almost every single colour you can think of. They are the perfect beads to combine with other beads or pendants and charms. Mix and match these colourful beads to get your bright bracelet. Start by thinking about the colours you want to use and whether you want to combine them with other beads, charms or pendants. I personally always like placing a charm or pendant in the middle to give it an extra spark. Next, it is time to choose your pattern. Do you like to place your Miyuki Delica beads symmetrically, or will you go for a more playful effect of not having a specific pattern? Whatever you choose, the possibilities of making a bracelet with Miyuki Delica beads are endless!
As mentioned, the possibilities of creating your own bracelet with beads are endless. This is perfect since it is definitely not difficult to make your own bracelet and therefore a fun activity for you and your friends. Have a look at all the inspiration online and give it your own twist. It is your own project and nothing is good or bad. If it did not turn into the result you had hoped, don’t worry, you can just start over again with the same beads. Don’t stop making other jewellery, because creating your own necklace, earrings or anklet can also be very fun. Is it the first time you are going to make your own jewellery? Perhaps is purchasing a starter kit an excellent idea. This starter kit includes all the basic materials you need for creating the perfect self-made jewellery. Last but not least, have fun creating your own bracelets with beads.

How is Monoi oil made?
The word “monoi” comes from Tahiti and means “fragrant oil”. To make this quality oil, Tahitians use the flowers of Tiaré or Thiaré Tahiti and refined copra oil (coconut oil). They mix these two ingredients to obtain Monoi oil. However, it is important to pick the flowers at the bud stage. They are then macerated in coconut oil for at least 10 days. To obtain the expected properties, Tahitians use 10 tiare flowers for one liter of coconut oil. Once the maceration is finished, the mixture is filtered and ready to use.
The benefits of Monoi oil
Thanks to the properties offered by these ingredients, Monoi oil is quite capable of offering you exceptional virtues on your hair and body. This treatment will nourish your hair in depth. If you have dull lengths and dry ends, this product will make them stronger, shinier and more supple.
How do you use your Monoi oil?
Monoi is also known for its ease of use. To apply it to your hair, simply use it as a hair mask. Leave your mask on overnight if possible and then rinse. This treatment can also be used as a substitute for your conditioner. This solution allows you to treat your lengths in depth. For dry hair, apply your oil to the lengths, avoiding the roots.
To apply it to your skin, simply use it as a massage oil. You can even mix it with a little sand or sugar and then gently massage your body. If you wish, pour a few drops of oil into your hot bath water. Replace your body lotion with this treatment as well. Apply it to your still damp skin and leave it on before going to bed or before going to the office.
