Instructions

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

  1. Use your Flush Cutters to cut a piece of Soft Flex beading wire at approximately ten inches long. Secure one end with a Bead Stopper.
  2. Onto your wire, thread the following:
  3. a 4mm Austrian crystal crystal AB 2x bicone
  4. an Austrian crystal teardrop rosaline pearl
  5. an Austrian crystal crystal AB rondelle
  6. an Austrian crystal teardrop light blue pearl
  7. a 4mm Austrian crystal crystal AB 2x bicone
  8. an Austrian crystal teardrop lavender pearl
  9. an Austrian crystal crystal AB rondelle
  10. an Austrian crystal teardrop crystal light gold pearl
  11. Repeat this stringing sequence two more times, and finally, add another 4mm Austrian crystal crystal AB 2x bicone.
  12. Onto the end of the strand, thread a crimp tube, but do not crimp it yet. Thread the strand through the loop on one half of the toggle clasp, back through the tube, and pull snug. Leave enough room for the toggle to move freely. Crimp the tube and trim off excess wire from this end.
  13. Remove the Bead Stopper from the opposite end of the bracelet and repeat the previous step.
  14. Remove the existing jump ring from the rabbit charm, and replace it with a 5mm jump ring. Before closing the 5mm jump ring, add it to the oval part of the toggle clasp.
  15. Place a crimp bead cover over each of the crimp tubes and gently squeeze each closed.
