Bracelet with Czech Glass Beads, Gold-Plated "Pewter" Charm and Antiqued Pewter Charm
Step 1
Using flush-cutters, cut a 12-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
Step 2
String onto the wire one crimp bead and a sterling silver Accu-Guard™. Pass the wire back through the crimp bead, leaving one end of the wire approximately 1-inch long. Pull the crimp tight against the Accu-Guard. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end. Place an antiqued silver-plated brass crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.
Step 3
Using one pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open one 5mm round antiqued brass-finished jumpring and pass it through the Accu-Guard and the loop on the ring portion of the clasp. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach a second 5mm jumpring for a double jumpring.
