Instructions

Finished Size: 8 3/8"

Step 1:
Cut a 9 1/4" length of .024 diameter Satin Silver Soft Flex Wire and attach a bead stopper to one end. Begin stringing beads on the wire in this order: one 4mm round sterling silver bead, one 6mm round faceted copper plated pewter bead, one 4mm round copper plated bead, one 6mm round faceted silver plated pewter bead.





Step 2:
Continue stringing beads in the same order as Step 1. After you string the eleventh 4mm round copper plated bead add a bead stopper to the end of the wire to hold all the beads in place until you are ready to add the clasp. You can add or remove beads depending on what size bracelet you need.



Step 3: Remove a bead stopper from one of the ends of the wire and string a 2x2mm silver filled crimp tube, then string half of the sterling silver clasp. Take the end of the wire and string it back through the crimp tube and crimp using the crimping pliers. Click here for step by step instructions on how to crimp. Next use the cutters and trim the excess wire flush to the crimp tube making sure not to cut the side of the wire with the stringed beads.



Step 4: Remove the bead stopper from the other end of the wire and string a 2x2mm silver filled crimp tube and the other half of the clasp. Take the end of the wire and string it back through the crimp tube and crimp using the crimping pliers. Use the cutters and trim the excess wire flush to the crimp tube.
