Instructions

Finished Size:7 1/2"

Step 1: Cut the wire into three 12" pieces. Use all three pieces to string 1 crimp tube and one half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.

Step 2: Use all three wire ends to string 9 glass beads. Braid the three wires together for 7". The holes in the beads should be large enough so that they slide back and forth over the wire braid.

Step 3: Use all three wire ends to string 1 crimp tube and the other half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.
