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.

These instructions will make a 7 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, simply adjust the number of beads you string.
  1. Begin by using pliers to open a 5mm jump ring, and slide on one loop of your magnetic clasp. Close the jump ring. Repeat this step to attach a jump ring to the opposite loop of your clasp. Set aside.
  2. Next, use flush cutters to cut one foot of beading wire and attach a bead stopper onto one end.
  3. Onto the wire, string the following beads: Three Czech glass rondelles; One 4mm stainless steel bead; Three Czech glass rondelles; One 6mm stainless steel bead.
  4. Repeat step 3 four more times, then string on three more rondelles.
  5. Next, string on one crimp tube, then one thread protector.
  6. Onto the thread protector, slide a jump ring on one side of your magnetic clasp. Then string your wire back through the crimp tube and crimp the tube.
  7. Remove your bead stopper, and repeat steps 5 and 6 to attach the other side of your clasp.
  8. Enjoy your bracelet!
