Retired - Blue Chrome Bracelet

PROJECT B2274
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Take your designs to the edge with these Swarovski Crystal Spike Beads in Metallic Blue and Light Chrome.
Instructions
This bracelet measures approximately 7 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length of chain on both sides respectively.
  1. To begin, cut off two lengths of chain 1 inch each. Set aside.
  2. Cut off two lengths of beading wire 8 inches each. Place a bead stopper two inches from one end over both lengths of wire.
  3. On to each wire, string 4 seed beads, then string on 1 silver two hole bead with one wire through each hole. Then string 3 seed beads and 1 blue two hole bead. Repeat the pattern of 3 seed beads and 1 two hole bead in alternating colors until you have 8 two hole beads followed by 4 seed beads.
  4. Take one crimp tube and slide it onto both strands. String the wires through a closed jump ring and back through the crimp tube. Crimp the crimp tube. Trim any excess wire. Place a crimp cover over the crimp tube. Move to the other side of this piece, remove the bead stopper and repeat this step.
  5. Open one jump ring and attach it to one closed jump ring on the beaded portion and to one length of chain. Close the jump ring. Move to the end of this chain and attach another jump ring and one loop of the magnetic clasp. Move to the other side of this bracelet and repeat this process to finish the bracelet.
