Retired - America in Bloom Bracelet

PROJECT B611
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Blossoms of lucite red and white flowers radiate from glass blue leaves in this patriotic bracelet. Swarovski crystals shimmer like fireworks and a detailed silver plated clasp adds a festive element to this piece.
Instructions
  1. Take one of your silver plated ball head pins and thread onto it 1 Swarovski 4mm bicone in light siam red, 1 lucite tulip lily of the valley flower bead cap in frosted crystal, 1 lucite violet flower in matte siam red. Create a wrapped wire loop after the flower and cut off excess wire with flush cutters. Create 4 more of these.
  2. Cut a 10" length of beading wire. Place a bead stopper on one end.
  3. Thread onto your wire, 1 crimp bead. Next thread:

  21. For the second half of your bracelet, make it a mirror image of the first. Make sure you end in a crimp bead.
  22. Right after you have strung the crimp bead onto your beading wire, string one half of your clasp through the loop at the bottom. Thread your beading wire back through the crimp bead and several beads next to it. Pull snug and crimp. Cut off excess wire with flush cutters.
  23. Remove your bead stopper from the other end of your bracelet. String the second half of your clasp through the hoop at the bottom. Thread the beading wire back through the crimp bead and several beads next to it. Pull snug and crimp. Cut off any excess wire.
