How to Make a Rainbow Wrap Around Knot Bracelet with Crystals

This week on Free Spirit Beading with Kristen Fagan, I show how to make a woven bracelet using rainbow colored crystal beads, Soft Touch™ and Soft Flex® beading wire on a Mini Macrame Board. This wrap knot technique can be adjusted for larger beads and thicker diameter beading wire if desired. I share a few similar tutorials with different materials at the bottom of this post!

How to Make a Rainbow Wrap Around Knot Bracelet with Crystals

Learn how to make this beaded wrap around knot bracelet with rainbow colored crystal beads, Soft Flex and Soft Touch beading wire and a button clasp closure. During the video, I also talk a bit about the two different wire brands and some recommended uses for Soft Touch beading wire. You don’t need much in the way of supplies, just some basic jewelry tools such as a pair of cutters, crimping pliers, beads, beading wire, a clasp and of course a mini macrame board!


Soft Flex Beading Wire .019/Medium in White

Soft Touch Beading Wire .010/Very Fine in White

4mm Crystal Bicone Beads in Rainbow Colors

Clasp or Button for Closure

Mini Macrame Board

Crimping Pliers


Check out the mini macrame board in action and learn how to crimp with the magical crimping pliers to create your own rainbow woven bracelet.

The result is a very fine and dainty bracelet style. I love this rainbow design! You can also create this with black beading wires instead of white. I bet it would look great that way too. You can also choose to try it with one color bead throughout. 

I even made a sweet little beaded button clasp closure! I don't do these often, I think they intimidate me a little but, it turned out to be surprisingly easy. You can leave the wire as is or use the tiny delica beads to finish it off like I did here.
