Retired - Asian Spring Bracelet

PROJECT B100
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
This lovely Asian-inspired bracelet uses a luscious color combination, fiery red and cool turquoise against a bright silver backdrop, bringing to mind a beautiful Spring day somewhere in the Far East.
Instructions
  1. Using the eyepins, create three looped segments, one with a red cinnabar bead, and the other two using one turquoise fire polish bead each.
  2. Link these three segments together.
  3. Using the fancy headpins, create six looped drops with one red fire polish bead each, and seven using one turquoise fire polish bead each. The extra drop is for the end of the extender chain.
  4. Cut two pieces of the smaller chain 5 1/4 inches long.
  5. Cut two pieces of the figure eight chain 2 inches long.
  6. Link one end of each of the figure eight chain pieces to either end of the three bead cinnabar and turquoise bead segment using a round jump ring.
  7. Now, essentially, you have three pieces of chain the same length. Using the oval jump rings, connect both ends of the three hole strand reducer to either end your three chain pieces, the two smaller chains on the outside and the figure eight chain (with the three bead segment) in the middle.
  8. Using the round jump rings, attach the turquoise and the red beads to the outer two chains, making sure they are evenly spaced and alternating in color. They should be about an inch apart.
  9. Trim the extender chain to about an inch long and add the remaining turquoise bead to the end, replacing the existing silver bead.
  10. Attach the other end of the extender chain to the strand reducer using a round jump ring.
  11. To the other strand reducer, add the lobster clasp using a round jump ring.
