Retired - Blue Jay Way Bracelet

PROJECT B125
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
This handsome little Blue Jay sits perched upon your wrist, amidst a pretty variety of crystals and glass druks.
Instructions
  1. Follow the directions on the back of the transfer sheet package in order to place the Blue Jay image on the blank bracelet panel. Once the image has dried, coat it with a thin layer of Mod Podge. Set the bracelet aside to dry.
  2. Cut thirty-two pieces of wire at two inches long, and create a simple wire loop at one end of each, essentially turning them into eyepins.
  3. Thread each of the Swarovskis and the Druks onto each of the eyepins, create a simple wire loop on each, and trim off excess wire.
  4. To create the "chain" part of the bracelet, link the bead segments together by opening a loop at one end of a segment the way you would open a jump ring and threading through a loop at one end of another bead segment before closing the loop again.
  5. Create six bead segment chains using this method, four with all druks in alternating colors, and two containing three various Swarovski beads, with a single druk in between each.
  6. Attach the chains to the bracelet panel and the the three strand reducer using oval jump rings. There should be three chains on either side of the bracelet, all druks on top and bottom, and the Swarovski chain in the middle.
  7. Thread the two Czech glass flower bead caps onto the two headpins. Create a simple loop on each and trim off excess wire.
  8. Open each of the loops on the flowers, and add one to the hole on one side of the bracelet panel, the other flower to the hole on the other side of the bracelet panel.
  9. Use an oval jump ring to attach the lobster clasp to one end of the bracelet and the extender chain to the other end.
