Alphabet beads FAQs

What are alphabet beads?

Also known as letter beads, alphabet beads are small beads used for jewellery making that have single letters, and sometimes numbers and symbols, on them. They can come in any colour, although the most common combination is a white bead with a black letter.

How to make bracelets with letter beads and string

Measure out your base cord or string so it wraps around your wrist with about 10cm spare on either end. Slide on as many alphabet beads as you want within the dimensions of your wrist circumference, then either add a clasping accessory to the bracelet to close it, or tie it with a knot to secure the beads.

How else can I use alphabet beads?

Use alphabet beads as dangling accessories off of a homemade bookmark, slide them onto a chenille stick for quick and easy accessories kids will love making, or glue them to a blank hair clip or pin to make a unique accessory for your hair or jacket.
