Retired - Love on a Wire Bracelet

PROJECT B151
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
With its hot pink triple strand beading wire dotted with crystals, and little brass hearts to gather all three strands, this bracelet is truly cute!
Instructions
  1. Begin by using your flush cutters to cut three strands of the hot pink color of beading wire which are approximately eight inches in length. Secure one end of each strand with a Bead Stopper.
  2. Gather all three strands of wire and thread them all through one of the small brass heart beads.
  3. Separate the strands and thread an individual round Swarovski crystal onto each.
  4. Gather the strands once more and thread them all through a single brass heart bead.
  5. Continue this stringing pattern, leaving about three quarters of an inch between each heart, until you have beaded approximately seven inches.
  6. Gather all three strands at one end of the bracelet and insert them into a brass fold-over crimp. It is okay if some of the wire protrudes. You may want add a dab of E6000 (XTL-1053) to each end before closing your crimps, for extra security. Gently fold over each half of the crimp and carefully squeeze shut with your chain nose pliers.
  7. Measure six inches down from the non-loop end of the fold over crimp, and this is where you will put your other crimp. Repeat the previous step on this end of the bracelet.
  8. Open a small oval jump ring and use it to attach your lobster clasp to one end of the bracelet. Close the jump ring again.
  9. Link together three of the large antiqued brass jump rings, creating a chain. Join one end of this "chain" to the fold-over crimp at the end of the bracelet.
  10. Open the last jump ring on this chain and add a Swarovski teardrop bead. Close the jump rings once more.
