Retired - Jackie Bracelet

PROJECT B1120
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
Two-hole pyramid shaped glass beads and bugle beads are suspended between two lengths of chain in this edgy, fun bracelet.
Instructions
These instructions will make a bracelet that measures approximately 7 inches long. To adjust the finished length, simply cut your chain pieces longer or shorter, accordingly. The clasp will add about 1/2" to the length.
  1. Cut two lengths of chain each 6.5" long.
  2. Place an eye pin through one hole of a pyramid bead. Create a simple loop on the other end of the bead. Repeat with a second eye pin in the second bead hole. Repeat this process with two more pyramid beads.
  3. Place a black bugle bead onto an eye pin and create a simple loop. Repeat with 11 more bugle beads and eye pins.
  4. Find the center link of a piece of chain. Attach the loops on one side of a pyramid bead to the links to either side of the center. Repeat to attach the other length of chain to the other side of the bead.
  5. Skip three links to the right from where the pyramid bead is attached and attach a bugle bead to both sides of chain with the eye pin loops. Skip one link and attach another bugle bead. Skip on link and attach a third bugle bead.
  6. Skip three links to the right and attach another pyramid bead. Then skip three more links and attach another series of three bugle beads as before.
  7. Now finish the left half of the beads as you did for the right.
  8. Take a jump ring and place the last two links on the right side of the chain into the jump ring. Before you close the ring, add on one half of a magnetic clasp. Close the ring.
  9. Complete the other side of the bracelet in the same way.
