Fuchsia Matrix Bracelet

PROJECT B8049
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
Brushed and glossy stainless steel beads add a weighted beauty to this bracelet, with faceted Czech glass 3mm rondelles spaced throughout. The bracelet is finished using a sleek stainless steel clasp and wire protectors.
Instructions
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!
