Instructions

Finished Size:7"

Step 1: Use 2" of non-tarnish silver wire to form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to the bar half of the toggle clasp. String 1 glass rondelle, 1 crystal rondelle and 1 glass rondelle, and form a wire-wrapped loop.

Step 2: Use 2 1/2" of non-tarnish silver wire to form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to the previous loop. String 1 glass rondelle, 1 heart bead and 1 glass rondelle, and form a wire-wrapped loop.

Step 3: Use 2" of non-tarnish silver wire to form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to the previous loop. String 1 glass rondelle, 1 crystal rondelle and 1 glass rondelle, and form a wire-wrapped loop.

Step 4: Repeat Steps 2 and 3. Repeat Step 2. Repeat Step 3, attaching the final wire-wrapped loop to the ring/heart half of the toggle clasp.

Step 5: Use 3" of non-tarnish silver wire and round nose pliers to form a small loop at one end of the wire. Use chain nose pliers to hold the loop as you wrap the wire around the loop, forming a flat spiral. Wrap for about 2 1/2 complete circles, or about 5mm. Place the spiral on the bench block or anvil and use a chasing hammer to flatten the spiral, being careful not to flatten the straight part of the wire. Use the straight end of the wire to string 1 glass rondelle, 1 crystal rondelle and 1 glass rondelle, and form a wire-wrapped loop that attaches to one loop of a link with a heart bead.

Step 6: Repeat Step 5 five times, attaching 1 dangle to each loop of all three links with heart beads.

Step 7: Use 4" of bare copper wire to repeat Step 5, forming a flat spiral about 4 1/2 complete circles, or about 8mm and attaching to the loop of the link with a heart bead on the opposite side of the bracelet as the silver dangle.

Step 8: Repeat Step 7 five times, attaching 1 dangle to each loop of all three links with heart beads.
