Enchanted Evening Bracelet with Swarovski Crystals

PROJECT B794
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Elegant and sophisticated, this dazzling beaded bracelet with Swarovski crystals is a grand accessory for an evening out. The focal is a brilliant Swarovski Crystal Octagon Fancy Stone in Montana Blue.
Instructions
Please note you will also need a popsicle stick for this project.The bracelet measures just over 6 inches long. To make it longer, simply add several more pearls and spacer beads to each side of the design near the clasp. You will not need to purchase any additional supplies.
  1. To begin this project, set your Swarovski fancy stone into its setting using the popsicle stick technique as demonstrated in the video: Quick Tip: How to Set a Swarovski Crystal Fancy Stone with a Popsicle Stick.
  2. Separate out your clasp so there are two parts. Cut 2 lengths of beading wire, 16 inches long each. It will be the same technique to create both sides of your bracelet. To make one side, follow the directions below:
  3. Take one of your lengths of beading wire and feed one end through one of the holes on one side of your setting (going from outside in). Loop the wire around so it exits the second hole on the same side of the setting. Pull the wire so that you have equal lengths on each side.
  4. Onto each strand string one spacer bead, one 8mm pearl, one spacer bead, one 6mm pearl, and one more spacer bead. Now thread both wires through a Swarovski 2-hole spike bead (one wire through each hole, making sure the spike bead is facing up).
  5. Next string one spacer bead onto each strand exiting the spike bead, then thread both strands through another spacer bead, one 8mm pearl, and another spacer bead.
  6. Separate the strands again and string one spacer bead onto each strand and then feed each strand through a spike bead and string on another spacer bead onto each.
  7. Bring the strands together again and feed both through a spacer bead, an 8mm pearl, and a spacer bead.
  8. Next string both strands through a crimp tube, the loop on the end of the clasp, and back through the crimp tube. Pull snug so that you do not have any gaps in the beading. Just do not pull too tight that your bracelet is rigid. Crimp the crimp tube and trim off excess wire. NOTE: Both wires are going through the same crimp tube.
  9. Place a crimp bead cover over the crimped crimp tube.
  10. Repeat the same beading process on the other side of your bracelet.
  11. All done! Enjoy!
