The bracelet measures 7.25 inches total. To modify the length, adjust the number of beads strung on each side respectively.
  1. Begin by cutting three 12 inch lengths of bead stringing wire.
  2. Using a bead stopper, line up and fasten your three strands of wire into place on one end about two inches from the tails.
  3. String 6 white beads onto the topmost strand. Then string 5 white beads onto the middle strand. Then string 6 white beads onto the bottom strand.
  4. String all three strands through one bronze beam bead. Then string all three strands through one red beam bead.
  5. Next, string one bronze seed bead onto the topmost strand. String one bronze seed bead onto the middle strand. String one bronze seed bead onto the bottom strand.
  6. String all three strands through one white beam bead, then repeat step 5 to add one bronze bead onto each strand.
  7. String all three strands through one red beam bead. Then string all three strands through one bronze beam bead.
  8. Now string 5 red seed beads onto the topmost strand. String 5 red seed beads onto the middle strand. String 5 red seed beads onto the bottom strand.
  9. String all three strands through one bronze beam bead. Then string all three strands through one white beam bead.
  10. Repeat step 5 to add one bronze bead onto each strand.
  11. String all three strands through one red beam bead, then repeat step 5 to add one bronze bead onto each strand.

  14. Repeat steps 4-13 two more times to continue the pattern.
  15. String all three strands through one bronze beam bead. Then string all three strands through one red beam bead.
  16. Repeat step 5 to add one bronze bead onto each strand.
  17. String all three strands through one white beam bead, then repeat step 5 to add one bronze bead onto each strand.
  18. String all three strands through one red beam bead.
  19. String 6 red seed beads onto the topmost strand. String 5 red seed beads onto the middle strand. String 6 red seed beads onto the bottom strand.
  20. String on one crimp bead to the topmost strand, thread the wire through the top loop of the clasp, and back down through the crimp bead. Crimp the crimp bead. Repeat on the middle and bottom strands. When attaching your clasp make sure to match up the strands with the appropriate corresponding loops on each side of the clasp so that it fastens properly. Using flush cutters, clip the ends of the stringing wire.
  21. Move to the other side of the bracelet, remove the bead stopper and repeat the above step to add the crimp bead and clasp.
