Shimmering Love Bracelet

PROJECT B2339
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
A charming statement of love, this bracelet features Swarovski Crystal hearts and beads in their sparkling Shimmer Effect.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a bracelet that is 6.5 inches in length. To modify, simply adjust the length of chain and the placement of the beads to suit your size.
  1. Begin by cutting a length of 45 links of chain.
  2. Open one jump ring and attach it to the heart end of the toggle clasp and to one end link of the chain. Close the jump ring.
  3. Take one head pin and string on one bicone bead. Begin to make a wrapped wire loop, but before closing the loop, hook it on to the first link of the chain. Finish the wrapped wire loop and trim any excess wire. Note: The rolo chain has perpendicular links, as you add the beads you will want to make sure they are on the same side of the bracelet so they dangle properly when worn.
  4. Move over two links and use one jump ring to attach the heart with the shimmer side facing forward. Close the jump ring.
  5. Move over two links, make another wrapped wire loop with a bicone on it and attach it to the link in the same manner as before.
  6. Next, move over four links, take a head pin, string on one round bead, make a wrapped wire loop and attach it to the link in the same manner the bicones.
  7. Move over four links and repeat the pattern three whole pattern more times. Be sure to alternate the way the hearts face. 1 and 3 with the shimmer side out; 2 and 4 with the crystal side out.
  8. To the final link of the chain, use a jump ring to attach the bar of the toggle clasp. Close the jump ring.
