Instructions

Finished Size: 7 1/4"

Step 1: Cut the Citrine wire into six 11" pieces. Repeat with the Red Jasper wire and the Butterscotch Imperial Topaz wire. Divide the wire into three groups: one group consisting of 4 Citrine wires, 1 Red Jasper wire, and 1 Butterscotch Imperial Topaz wire (Group A); one group consisting of 4 Red Jasper wires, 1 Citrine wire, and 1 Butterscotch Imperial Topaz wire (Group B); and one group consisting of 4 Butterscotch Imperial Topaz wires, 1 Red Jasper wire, and 1 Butterscotch Imperial Topaz wire (Group C). Set aside.

Step 2: Use all six wires of Group A to string 1 crimp tube. Use two of the Citrine wires to string the first hole of one half of the clasp; pass the two Citrine wires back through the tube, and crimp. Cut all wire tails.

Step 3: Divide the group of wire into three sections, making sure every section has at least one Citrine wire. Braid the wires together for 6 1/4".

Step 4: Use all size wires to string 1 crimp tube. Use two of the Citrine wires to string the first hole of the other half of the clasp; pass the two Citrine wires back through the tube, and crimp. Cut all wire tails.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 2-4 using Group B and using Red Jasper wires in place of Citrine wires.

Step 6: Repeat Steps 2-4 using Group C and using Butterscotch Imperial Topaz wires in place of Citrine wires.
