Instructions

Step 1: Cut nine 10 inch pieces in each of three different colors of beading wire. Organize into nine piles of three strands, one strand of each color per pile.

Step 2: Use three strands to string 1 crimp tube, leave a 1 1/2 inch tail and crimp. Use all three strands to string 1 crimp tube. Create a wave shape using the wire between the two crimps: Pull one of the wires up about 1/4 inch from the bottom wire, then pull the other wire up about 1/4 inch from that wire, and crimp. The wave should be about 1 1/4 inches from crimp to crimp and approximately 1/2 inch between the bottom wire and top wire of the wave. Repeat until you have 5 waves and have used 6 crimps. On each end of the waves, cut two of the wires and trim the remaing wire to 2 inches. Cover all crimps with crimp covers.





Step 3: Repeat Step 2 eight times, for a total of nine pieces. Organize the nine pieces into three piles of three.

Step 4: Use three pieces to string 1 crimp tube, pushing the crimp up next to the already set crimp tubes, and crimp. Repeat on the opposite side. Trim the two shortest of the three tails on both sides, leaving only one tail. Cover the newest crimp tubes with crimp covers.

Step 5: Repeat Step 4 twice, for a total of three pieces.

Step 6: Use three pieces to string 1 crimp tube, pushing the crimp up next to the already set crimp tubes & crimp. Repeat on the opposite side. Trim the two shortest of the three tails on both sides, leaving only one tail. Cover the newest crimp tubes with crimp covers.

Step 7: Use the final wire to string 1 crimp tube and one half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Repeat on the other side. Trim the excess wire.
