PROJECT B2023
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
These SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Crystal Astral Pink rondelles would glitter beautifully in the sun of Mexico. So pack your bag, and head to Cabo!
Instructions
Before beginning this project, please watch the following videos: How to make a Four Strand Round Braid How to make a Simple Wire Loop How to use Ribbon Crimps
  1. Cut two pieces of chain, each 7 inches. Set aside.
  2. Make a four strand braid using the rose pink silk fabric string. Cut four pieces, 10 inches long, for your braid. Your finished braid is 7 inches.
  3. Use the ribbon crimps to finish off the braid. If you like you can secure the ends with a dab of E6000, before using the ribbon crimps. Set the braid aside.
  4. Take a eyepin and place on it a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal astral pink rondelle. Make a simple wire loop. Repeat this step 15 more times.
  5. Open the eyepins, as you would a jump ring to link all 16 simple wire loop beads together forming a strand.
  6. To attach all four strands together of your bracelet together, open one 8mm jump ring. Onto the jump ring, add one of the chain ends, the ribbon crimp end, one chain end, and one simple wire loop end. Close the jump ring.
  7. Before you repeat this step on the other side, you will want to slightly twist the four strands within each other.
  8. Open one 8mm jump ring. Onto the jump ring, add the ribbon crimp end, one chain end, one simple wire loop end and one chain end. Before you close the jump ring, take the square piece of the toggle clasp and add it to the jump ring as well. Close the jump ring.
  9. To add the toggle bar to the other side, add a chain of four 5mm jump rings linked to the 8mm jump ring. To the final 5mm jump ring add the toggle bar and close the jump ring.
  10. You can twist this bracelet as much as you like when you wear it.
