Retired - Cotton Candy Bracelet

PROJECT B3002
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This bracelet is pretty in pink! It has lots of sparkle from amethyst Czech glass beads and pink Czech crystal rhinestones. The look is tied together with 'satin silver' wire.
Instructions
These instructions will make a finished bracelet that is approximately 6" long. Measure your wrist and cut your wire shorter or longer to adjust the length. Be sure to include at least 6 additional inches of wire to allow for crimping, three inches for each side.
  1. Cut 12 inches of wire with your flush cutters and string the tip through a crimp bead.
  2. String on your clasp then loop the beading wire back through the crimp bead (you want a short tail of about 3 inches of wire). Pull snug so that you have a small loop. Crimp the crimp bead and trim off the short tail.
  3. String your beads onto your wire starting with one amethyst bead followed by one pink rondelle bead. Repeat this sequence 13 more times followed by an amethyst bead at the end.
  4. Once you've strung all your beads, take the end of your wire and string it through another crimp bead. Add a jump ring and loop the wire back into the crimp bead.
  5. Using your crimp pliers, crimp your crimp bead. Snip off any excess beading wire.
  6. Your bracelet is now ready.
