Retired - For My Mother Bracelet

PROJECT B140
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
October is the official month for the promotion of breast cancer awareness. However, if you create a piece of jewelry to honor someone you love who has been affected, every day can be a reminder to all that a cure must be found. I made this piece for my favorite survivor, my Mother.
Instructions
  1. To begin, cut a piece of Soft Flex beading wire at about one foot long, using your Flush Cutters (XTL-5600). Secure one end of the wire with a Bead Stopper (XTL-3000).
  2. Onto the Soft Flex thread the following, a Swarovski bicone, a sterling silver inspirational bead (you may choose the order you would like the inspirational beads to go in), a Swarovski bicone, a bead cap, a 12mm round pink quartz bead, and a bead cap.
  3. Repeat this stringing pattern four more times, then add a Swarovski bicone, the last sterling silver inspirational bead, and another Swarovski bicone.
  4. Thread a crimp tube onto the end of the strand, but do not crimp it yet. Thread the end of the strand through a closed jump ring, back through the crimp tube, pull snug, and crimp the tube. Trim off excess wire.
  5. Remove the Bead Stopper from the opposite end of the strand and repeat the previous step.
  6. Open two sterling silver open jump rings. Use one to attach the round part of the toggle clasp to one end of the bracelet, and use the other jump ring to attach the bar part of the toggle clasp to the other end of the bracelet. Close both jump rings again.
  7. Open the jump ring on the "Mother" charm. Thread it onto the round part of the toggle clasp and close it once more.
  8. Place a crimp bead cover over both of the crimp tubes, and gently squeeze both of them shut.
