Retired - Under the Sea Bracelet

PROJECT B3000
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This lovely bracelet incorporates Czech glass beads in several shades of blue and green. It's a bright, eye-catching accessory that will add a pop of color to any outfit.
Instructions
These instructions will make a finished bracelet that is approximately 9" long. Measure your wrist and cut your 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 15 inches of wire with your flush cutters and string the tip through a crimp bead.
  2. String on your clasp 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.
  3. Crimp the crimp bead and trim off the short tail.
  4. String your beads onto your wire starting with one green turquoise bead, one pale turquoise bead, one green olivine bead and one turquoise tear drop bead. Repeat this sequence 10 more times.
  5. Once you've strung all your beads, take the end of your wire and string it through another crimp bead. Add a jump ring and loop the wire back into the crimp bead.
  6. Using your crimp pliers, crimp your crimp bead. Snip off any excess beading wire.
  7. Your bracelet is now ready.
