Retired - Pink Champagne Bracelet

PROJECT B3018
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
If champagne bubbles could be threaded onto a bracelet, they would look like this strand of vintage Lucite beads in an effervescent peachy pink. Paired with bright silver plated findings, this bracelet has a wonderful touch of vintage flair.
Instructions
These instructions will make a finished bracelet that is approximately 8" long. Measure your wrist and cut your silver plated wire shorter or longer to adjust the length. Be sure to include at least 6 additional inches of wire to allow for crimping, three inches for each side.
  1. Cut 14 inches of silver plated wire with your flush cutters and string the tip through a crimp bead.
  2. String on your clasp (through the small loop on the side) then loop the beading wire back through the crimp bead (you want a short tail of about 3 inches of wire). Pull snug so that you have a small loop. Crimp the crimp bead.
  3. Now, you will begin stringing on your beads and bead caps. Do not snip off the short tail of the wire because you will be stringing on your first few beads and bead caps through it as well. (This step is to ensure that your wire is secure.)
  4. String on one bead cap, then one pink Lucite bead, and then another bead cap onto your wire. Your pink Lucite bead should be sandwiched between the two filigree bead caps.
  5. Repeat this sequence 9 more times.
  6. Once you've strung all your beads, take the end of your wire and string it through another crimp bead and the loop on the clasp on the other side. Also feed your wire through a few adjacent beads. (When you are doing this, also make sure to not tug too tightly.)
  7. Using your crimp pliers, crimp your crimp bead. Snip off any excess beading wire from the short tail that is showing.
  8. Lastly, take a crimp cover, slide it onto your crimped crimp bead, and carefully tighten it with your chain nose pliers. Repeat this step again with the crimped bead on the other side.
  9. Your bracelet is now ready.
