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 bracelet that is approximately 6 3/4" long. You can add or subtract beads from the center to lengthen or shorten the bracelet. For each pearl bead with bead caps and crystal bead set that you add, it will add about 5/8" to your bracelet.
  1. Cut two 12" lengths of .014" Soft Flex beading wire.
  2. Hold the two lengths together and attach a bead stopper 2-3" from one end.
  3. With the two lengths of wire together, string one 3 mm silver plated round bead followed by two 4 mm silver plated daisy spacer beads.
  4. Next, string one 2 mm x 38 mm silver plated curved noodle tube bead onto each of the lengths of wire.
  5. Bring the lengths of wire together and string two daisy spacer beads.
  6. Then, with the lengths together, string one 4 mm PRESTIGE Crystal round bead, one 5.7 mm silver plated leaf bead cap, one 8 mm rosaline PRESTIGE Pearl bead, and another leaf bead cap. Make sure that the bead caps are strung with the wide side facing the pearl bead.
  7. Repeat step 6 three times, and then, with the lengths together, string one crystal bead and then two daisy spacer beads.
  8. Next, string one 2 mm x 38 mm silver plated curved noodle tube bead onto each of the lengths of wire.
  9. Bring the lengths back together and string two daisy spacer beads followed by one silver plated round bead.
  10. String a 1.3 mm silver plated crimp bead onto the end of your bracelet, with the lengths together. Then use a .024" silver plated wire and thread protector to attach one side of the 12 mm silver plated toggle clasp. Bring the strands of wire back through the crimp bead and silver plated round bead and use chain nose pliers to pull tight. Secure with the crimp bead and trim the excess wire with flush cutters.
  11. Carefully remove the bead stopper from the other end of your work. String a crimp bead onto the end, with the lengths together, and use another wire and thread protector to attach the other side of the toggle clasp. Bring the strands of wire back through the crimp bead and silver plated round bead and use chain nose pliers to pull tight. Secure with the crimp bead and trim the excess wire with flush cutters.
