Instructions

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

These instructions make a 6 1/2 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, adjust the number of beads strung on each side of the focal sequence.
  1. Place 1 scarlet pear-shaped fancy stone into 1 gold fancy stone setting. Using nylon jaw pliers (so you don't accidentally scratch your crystal), gently bend each of the 4 prongs down over the stone. You can also use a popsicle stick for this step, in place of the nylon jaw pliers. Repeat this step 4 more times for a total of 5 crystals in gold settings. Set your crystals aside.
  2. Using flush cutters, cut two 12 inch lengths of gold beading wire. Place both wires into a bead stopper, about 2 inches from the end of the wires.
  3. Onto each wire, string 2 gold demi-round seed beads. Onto both wires, string 1 two-hole square crystal bead. Onto each wire, string 2 gold demi-rounds, 1 graphite bicone, and 2 gold demi-rounds. (See photo for reference.)
  4. Onto both wires, string 1 pear-shaped fancy stone, pointing up. Onto each wire, string 2 gold demi-rounds, 1 graphite bicone, and 1 gold demi-round. Onto both wires, string 1 two-hole square crystal bead. Onto each wire, string 1 gold demi-round, 1 graphite bicone, and 2 gold demi-rounds.
  5. Repeat step 4, with the pear-shaped fancy stone pointing down.
  6. Repeat step 4, with the pear-shaped fancy stone pointing up.
  7. Repeat step 4, with the pear-shaped fancy stone pointing down.
  8. Onto both wires, string 1 pear-shaped fancy stone, pointing up. Onto each wire, string 2 gold demi-rounds, 1 graphite bicone, and 2 gold demi-rounds. Onto both wires, string 1 two-hole square crystal bead. Onto each wire, string 2 gold demi-rounds.
  9. Separate the two halves of your box clasp.
  10. Take one wire end and string a crimp bead. Also string one of the loops of half of your clasp. Take the wire back through your crimp bead and pull tight. Crimp the crimp bead with the 2mm notch of your crimping pliers. Cut off the excess wire with flush cutters.
  11. Repeat step 10 for the second wire on the same side of the bracelet.
  12. Remove your bead stopper from the other end of the bracelet. Repeat steps 10-11 to attach the wire ends to the other half of your clasp. Enjoy your bracelet!
