Retired - Peace and Love Bracelet

PROJECT B7002
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
Channel your Summer of Love memories -- or at least your love of music festivals -- with this colorful jasper wrap bracelet bearing timeless TierraCast message beads. Perfect for next-gen hippies.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 6 1/2 inch bracelet. Cut a longer piece of wire and add more beads to create a longer bracelet.
  1. Using your flush cutters, cut one 28 inch length of beading wire.
  2. String one crimp tube, then slide on one piece of your magnetic clasp set. String the wire back through the crimp tube and pull it snug, so the clasp is secured by a small loop. Use your crimping pliers to crimp your crimp tube. Clip off the extra wire with your flush cutters.
  3. Begin stringing your beads. String on a few impression jasper beads, followed by a TierraCast spacer bead, varying the pattern for a non-uniform look. You can either follow the example in the photo, or string the beads in whatever order you like. Every few inches, add a TierraCast "peace" or "love" message bead.
  4. Once you've strung 21 inches of your bracelet, slide on another crimp tube followed by the matching piece of your magnetic clasp. Pass the wire back through your crimp tube, pull it snug, and crimp the crimp tube using your crimping pliers. Clip off the tail of your wire with your flush cutters.
  5. Using your flat nose and round nose pliers, open a jump ring.
  6. Slide on your heart-shaped peace sign charm. Then attach the jump ring to the loop of your beading wire near one side of your clasp.
  7. Close the clasp, and your bracelet is ready to wear!
