Retired - Stars & Stripes Forever Bracelet

PROJECT B170
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
This festive bracelet features sparkly red, white, and blue Swarovski crystals nestled in star chain. To make matching earrings all you need is an additional pair of earring hooks.
Instructions
  1. Cut a length of the star charm chain at approximately six and a half inches long.
  2. Thread a red Swarovski bicone onto a ball head pin. Create the beginning of a wrapped wire loop. Create six more of these using red bicones, seven more using white bicones, and an additional seven using blue bicones.
  3. Link the bicone dangles onto the star charm chain in a red, white, and blue pattern, skipping a chain link between each dangle. Once each bicone is in place, complete each wrapped wire loop and trim off excess wire.
  4. Open two oval jump rings. Use one of the jump rings to connect the bar half of a toggle clasp to one end of the chain, use the other jump ring to connect the other half of the toggle clasp to the other end of the chain. Close both jump rings again.
