 Bracelet with Dione® Glass Beads, Czech Fire-Polished Glass Beads and Christmas Charm 

Bracelet with Dione® Glass Beads, Czech Fire-Polished Glass Beads and Christmas Charm
Step 1
Using flush-cutters cut one 12-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire and two 3/8 inch lengths of gold-plated French wire.
Step 2
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers open three 6mm fancy round jumprings. Attach one jumpring to the loop on the ring portion of the clasp and one jumpring to the loop on the bar portion of the clasp.
Step 3
String onto one end of the beading wire, one gold-plated 2mm crimp bead, one 3/8 inch length of French wire and the jumpring on the ring portion of the toggle clasp. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the French wire leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite®) inside the crimp (optional).

Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters trim the excess from the short end.
Step 4
String one 6mm ruby red fire-polished 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 a link. Attach one 6mm fancy round jumpring to the loop on one end of the link. Attach the other end of the link to the loop on the Santa's Sleigh charm.
Step 5
String onto the beading, one Czech fire-polished glass light red 4mm round and the 6mm fancy round jumpring attached to the Santa's Sleigh charm.
Step 6
Continue stringing the following onto the beading wire:
  • One Czech fire-polished glass light red 4mm round
  • One 6mm fancy round jumpring
  • Two Czech fire-polished glass light red 4mm rounds
  • One Dione glass red 14x8mm rondelle (fits over the two previous red glass 4mm rounds)
  • One 6mm fancy round jumpring
Repeat this stringing sequence a second time.

  • One Czech fire-polished light red glass 4mm round

  • Two Czech fire-polished glass emerald green 4mm rounds
