Shimmer Ombre Bracelet

PROJECT B2430
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This design features beautiful shimmer rondelle crystal beads from Swarovski in a soft graduated strung bracelet.
Instructions
This design measures approximately 6.5 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the number of beads strung.
  1. Begin by cutting off 10 inches of wire and placing a bead stopper on one end.
  2. String the beads in the following order, starting and ending with one seed bead and one seed bead in between each rondelle: 4 pacific opal, 4 chrysolite opal, 4 light rose, 4 rosewater, 4 white opal.
  3. String on one crimp tube and thread the wire up and over a wire protector. Add one closed jump ring before threading the wire back through the crimp tube. Pull until snug and crimp the crimp tube. Trim any excess wire. Add a crimp cover.
  4. Move to the other side of the bracelet and repeat the above step, adding a lobster clasp instead of the jump ring.
