Retired - Desert Nights Bracelet

PROJECT B102
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
Desert Jasper and Turquoise Jasper look amazing on a backdrop of shiny dark gunmetal. The gunmetal accent beads sparkle like the stars in a desert sky at night.
Instructions
  1. Thread 16 of the desert jasper beads onto eyepins and create a simple loop at the end of each.
  2. On four eyepins thread a gunmetal sparkle bead, a turquoise jasper bead, and another gunmetal jasper bead. Create a simple loop at the end of each.
  3. On three more eyepins thread a single turquoise jasper bead, and create a simple loop at the end.
  4. On a headpin, thread a single turquoise jasper bead and create a simple loop at the end.
  5. Using the proper way to open a jump ring, add two of the rectangle jasper bead segments to a single jump ring.
  6. The other sides of these segments add to either side of one of the sparkle bead and turquoise jasper segments.
  7. Add another rectangle bead segment to either side of the same sparkle bead and turquoise jasper segment.
  8. Add both rectangle segments to the same single turquoise jasper segment.
  9. To the other side of this segment, add two more rectangle segments.
  10. Repeat until you end up with four rectangle jasper diamond shapes, each encompassing a vertical segment consisting of two sparkle beads and one turquoise jasper, with one single turquoise jasper segment between each diamond shape.
  11. When you get to the end, join the last two rectangle segments with a jump ring. To this jump ring add several more jump rings (I used seven, total), creating an extender chain.
  12. To the end of the extender chain add the single turquoise jasper bead on a headpin.
  13. At the other end of the bracelet, to the single jump ring, add the lobster clasp.
