Gilded Chalice Bracelet

PROJECT B8012
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This bejeweled bracelet boasts three rounds of decoratively wire wrapped Swarovski crystal emerald beads and midnight rainbow chatons. The crystals adorn gold plated flat memory wire utilizing pronged cup findings and hematite craft wire.
Instructions
This bracelet consists of 3 rounds of flat memory wire, each round measuring 2.25 inches in diameter. To modify the size, adjust the length of your memory wire accordingly, adding the corresponding number of units to achieve the desired length.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Use Beadalon Flat Memory Wire Prong Cup Settings. This video will demonstrate how to use and attach the prong cup settings.
  2. Set and secure all 20 of your crystal chatons into the cups as shown in the video.
  3. Use memory wire cutters to cut 3 rounds of flat bracelet memory wire.
  4. With round nose pliers, grip one end of the wire and create an outward facing simple wire loop.
  5. Next, cut 3 feet of 24 gauge craft wire. Secure one end of the wire by coiling it three times inside the outward facing loop of the memory wire and covering it with a crimp cover as shown in the video How to Create a Wire Wrapped Flat Memory Wire Bracelet With European Style Large Hole Beads. Then begin coiling the craft wire tightly 6 times around the flat memory wire.
  6. String one 4mm green bead onto the craft wire, lay it flat along the outside of the bracelet, and coil the craft wire 6 more times around the memory wire.
  7. Next, slide on one of your cupped chatons, moving it all the way down against the coiled wire. Pull the craft wire snug underneath the cupped chaton so that it lays flush with the base of the finding. Coil 6 more times around the memory wire, working your way along the bracelet by adding two 4mm green beads in between each cupped chaton. Repeat this pattern until you have added all of your cupped chatons (please see photo for reference).
  8. Once you have added your last cupped chaton, wrap 6 more coils of craft wire, add one last green bead, and finish with 6 coils of wire.
  9. Using round nose pliers, create another outward facing loop on the other end of your memory wire, coil and secure this end of the 24 gauge craft wire wire inside your loop and cover it with a crimp like you did in step 5. Enjoy your bracelet!
