Bracelet with Dione™ Glass and Gold-Plated Brass Beads and Czech Fire-Polished Glass Beads
Step 1
String one 8mm faceted round light red fire-polished glass bead onto an eyepin. Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters, form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire, creating an 8mm faceted round light red fire-polished glass beading link. Repeat to create seven 8mm faceted round light red fire-polished glass beading links.
Step 2
Repeat to create the following bead drops using one bead and one 1-1/2 inch headpin:
  • Thirteen 4mm faceted round light red fire-polished glass bead drops
  • Twelve 4mm double cone gold-plated bead drops
  • Thirteen 5mm square gold-plated bead drops
Step 3
Using flush-cutters, cut six 1/2 inch lengths of gold-plated 4.8x3.3mm cable chain.
Step 4
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a 5mm jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the toggle portion of the clasp and the loop of an 8mm faceted round light red fire-polished glass beading link. Close the jumpring.
Step 5
Open a 5mm jumpring. Pass it through the opposite loop on the 8mm faceted round light red fire-polished glass beading link, the loop on one 4mm faceted round light red fire-polished glass bead drop, one 4mm double cone gold-plated bead drop, one 5mm square gold-plated bead drop and the first link on a 1/2 inch length of chain. Close the loop.
Step 6
Pass a 15x8mm faceted rondelle green crystal onto the chain attached in Step 5. Open a 5mm jumpring. Pass it through the opposite loop on the 8mm faceted round light red fire-polished glass beading link, the loop on one 4mm faceted round light red fire-polished glass bead drop, one 4mm double cone gold-plated bead drop, one 5mm square gold-plated bead drop and the first loop on a 8mm faceted round light red fire-polished glass beading link. Close the loop.
Step 7
Repeat Step 5 and 6 five times for a total of six sets.
Step 8
Open a 5mm jumpring. Pass it through the opposite loop on the last 8mm faceted round light red fire-polished glass beading link, the loop on one 4mm faceted round light red fire-polished glass bead drop, one 5mm square gold-plated bead drop and the loop on the toggle ring portion of the clasp.
