Retired - Lake Havasu Bracelet

PROJECT B2026
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
The antique copper plated pewter pieces from TierraCast combined with the turquoise ultra suede gives this bracelet a subtle global marketplace feel.
Instructions
This design will give you a bracelet that measures 7".
  1. Cut 6 pieces of ultra suede cord; 5 1/2 inches long.
  2. Onto both ends of each piece of the suede cord, use the fold over cord ends to finish the ends. How to use Fold Over Crimping Pliers.
  3. Lay out the cords. Taking one strand reducer, line up each cord to each corresponding hole. Open a jump ring and attach the first cord end to the first hole of the strand reducer. Close the jump ring. Repeat this for each cord, but only on this side. Do not attach the other side just yet.
  4. Now to add the connector links to the bracelet, lay out your cords so they are in order. For our purposes we will label them 1, 2 and so forth from the bottom to the top.
  5. Place one connector link on to cords 1, 2, and 3. Slide down.
  6. Place one connector link on to cords 3, 4, and 5. Slide down.
  7. Place one connector link on to cords 2, 3, and 4. Slide down.
  8. Place one connector link on to cords 4, 5, and 6. Slide down.
  9. Place one connector link on to cords 1, 2, and 3. Slide down.
  10. Place one connector link on to cords 3, 4, and 5. Slide down.
  11. You will now attach the other ends of cords to the other strand reducer with the jump rings, in the same order as the other side. To the end of this strand reducer you will use three jump rings to form a chain. Onto the last jump ring, attach the toggle bar of the clasp and close the jump ring.
  12. Going back to the first side, open one jump ring and attach the circle of the toggle clasp to the strand reducer loop. Close the jump ring.
