Retired - The Vara Bracelet

PROJECT B109
Designer: Amanda Nistor
Skill Level: Beginner
The subtle warmth of antique copper meets the deep sparkle of Swarovski in this pretty bracelet.
Instructions
  1. Cut five pieces of wire at two inches each.
  2. Thread one end of one of the lengths of wire through the loop on the circular part of the toggle clasp and create a wrapped loop.
  3. On the same piece of wire thread a Bali copper daisy, an 8mm Swarovski bead, and another copper daisy. Thread the wire through one of the loops on a rivoli bezel. Create a wrapped loop and trim off excess wire.
  4. On the other loop of the same rivoli bezel thread another piece of wire and create a wrapped loop.
  5. On the same piece of wire thread a Bali copper daisy, an 8mm Swarovski bead, and another copper daisy. Thread the wire through one of the loops on a rivoli bezel. Create a wrapped loop and trim off excess wire.
  6. Repeat this process until you use all four rivoli bezels and all five 8mm beads. On the last 8mm bead segment create a wrapped loop without threading it though anything.
  7. Add a jump ring to the final wrapped loop and another jump ring to the first one.
  8. To the final jump ring add the bar part of the toggle clasp.
  9. Using a toothpick, apply a small amount of the E6000 glue to the backs of the rivolis and place them in the cups of the rivoli bezels. The glue will set in about six minutes, and full drying occurs within twenty-four hours.
