Instructions

Finished Size: 7"

Step 1:
Use 3" of 20 gauge Craft Wire to form a wire-wrapped loop. String 1 nugget and form a wire wrapped loop. Repeat for a total of nine links.



Step 2: Cut two 10" pieces of the Soft Flex .019 diameter wire.

Step 3: Use 1 wire to string 1 crimp tube and one half of the clasp. Pass back through the crimp tube and crimp. Cover the tube with a crimp cover. String 1 crimp tube. Pass one end of the other wire through the tube. Adjust the tube so that it is just below the previous crimp tube. Crimp the tube and cover it with a crimp cover.



Step 4: Use 1 wire to string {3 rondelles and one loop of 1 link} nine times. String 3 rondelles. Place a Bead Stopper on the wire.

Step 5: Use the other wire to string 3 rondelles. Pass the wire through the other loop of the first link. Repeat entire step 8 times. String 3 rondelles.

Step 6: Remove the Bead Stopper. Use both wire ends to string 1 crimp tube. Snug the beads on the wire and adjust the crimp tube. Crimp the tube. Trim the shorter of the two wire ends. Use the other wire end to string 1 crimp tube and the other half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Cover the tube with a crimp cover.
