Instructions

Finished Size 7"

Step 1: Cut each color of wire into nine 10" pieces.

Step 2: Use all nine strands of the gold wire to string 1 crimp tube and the first loop of one half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp.

Step 3: Divide the wire into three groups of three strands each. Braid the wires for about 6 3/4 inches and place a Bead Stopper on wires at the end of the braid to keep it from unraveling.

Step 4: Use all nine strands to string 1 crimp tube and the first loop of the other half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and slide the tube so that it is right next to the Bead Stopper. Remove the Bead Stopper and adjust the tube, if necessary. Crimp the tube and trim the tail wires.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 2-4 using silver wire and the middle loops of the clasp.

Step 6: Repeat Steps 2-4 using champagne wire and the last loops of the clasp.
