Step 1: You Will Need:

First you will need to gather your materials:
-bead stringing wire, nylon coated stainless steel 0.30mm
-jump loops
-strong clasp
-2 colors of small beads similar size or spacer beads
-2 types of bigger beads similar size 
-crimp beads
-pliers  
all can be found at a craft store 
Sorry! the image bellow is a bit rubbish

Step 2: Getting Started

now we can start making! you will need to cut the bead stringing wire so it will go twice round your wrist 

Step 3: Loop for Clasp

push a crimp bead along your wire to the end leaving a small loop this is were we will attach the clasp.use you pliers the close the bead tight

Step 4: Leaving a Gap

you will need to leave a gap and add another crimp bead for the space between the beads and the clasp. try make the bracelet look even, try to leave even gaps at each side.

Step 5: Adding Beads

Now it is time to add your beads start with a spacer bead then add a larger bead ,it looks neater. Use spacer beads between bigger beads.Once you have added all your beads put another crimp bead on the end.

Step 6: End Loop

This is probably the most difficult part. You need to add another loop at the end. I do this by threading a crimp bead on then bending the ends into it and crimping. 

Step 7: Finishing Off

To finish you will need to add jump loops and a clasp. For people who are familiar at making jewelry will know how to open and close jump loops. All you have to do is use two pairs of pliers to twist them open and shut remember to trap a clasp in one of them.   

Step 8: Finished

Your done!
