Retired - Cairo Wrap Bracelet

PROJECT B3054
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Reminiscent of the bold colors of ancient Egypt, this pretty wrap bracelet featuring mini dagger beads in Opaque Red and Matte Metallic Goldenrod will brighten up your look.
Instructions
This wrap bracelet measures approximately 17� inches long. You can make this bracelet into a necklace by simply using more wire and adding on more beads.
  1. Using your flush cutters, cut a 23 inch length of beading wire (I have already included 3 additional inches on either side to allow for crimping).
  2. String on a crimp tube followed by the loop from one half of your gold plated magnetic clasp. Take the wire and string back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp your crimp tube with your crimping pliers.
  3. You will begin stringing on your beads now. Remember to also string on beads onto the short tail of wire as well; this will help keep your necklace secure. String your beads on in this order: 1 turquoise bead, 1 metallic goldenrod mini dagger bead, 1 turquoise bead, and 1 opaque red mini dagger bead. See photo.
  4. Repeat this pattern on 17 inches of your beading wire. (Remember, you can add more beads to create a necklace or a bracelet with more wraps).
  5. Once all your beads are one, slide on a crimp tube followed by the loop from the second half of your magnetic clasp. Using your crimping pliers, crimp your crimp bead. Take the short tail of beading wire and tuck it into the few adjacent beads near the clasp and snip off any excess. This will help keep your necklace secure.
  6. Close your clasp and you�re done!
