Instructions





Step 1:
Cut Soft Flex Extreme Flex Beading Wire into three 9" lengths, one for each bracelet. Clip a bead stopper on one end and string a 2mm gold filled crimp tube, shell heishi beads, one gold filled curved bar, shell heishi beads and another crimp tube.

Step 2: Attach a lobster clasp on one end and crimp. Attach a jump ring on the other end and crimp. Trim excess wire. Click here for crimping instructions.



Step 3: The bird bead I am using has a vertical hole. I threaded the bird bead onto a head pin. Then using your round nose pliers make a loop. Then wrap the remaining wire around the bottom of the loop formed. Click here to see how to make a bead dangle.


Step 4: Using your pliers, open the jump ring that you attached to one end of the bracelet and add your bird bead dangle.

Step 5: Repeat steps to create two more bracelets.
