 Bracelet with Angelite Gemstone Beads, Swarovski Crystal Beads and Antiqued Silver-Plated Pewter Drop 

Bracelet with Angelite Gemstone Beads, Swarovski Crystal Beads and Antiqued Silver-Plated Pewter Drop
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, one 4mm faceted round denim blue crystal and one sterling silver Accu-Guard™. Pass the wire back through the 4mm faceted round crystal and the crimp bead, leaving one end of the wire approximately 1-inch long. Pull the crimp crystal 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 a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open one 3mm round sterling silver 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 3mm jumpring for a double jumpring.
Step 4
Open one 3mm round sterling silver jumpring and pass it through the loop on one double-sided silver-plated angel drop and the ring portion of the clasp. Close the jumpring.

Step 6
String onto the wire one crimp bead, one 4mm faceted round denim blue crystal and one sterling silver Accu-Guard. Pass the wire back through the 4mm faceted round crystal and the crimp bead, leaving one end of the wire approximately 1-inch long. Pull the crimp bead and crystal up 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.
