End of Materials List
Step 1
Mix Araldite® Standard Epoxy according to manufacture's instructions. Place a thin layer of adhesive on the back of one Swarovski light Siam 6.1mm chaton and on the inside of one silver-finished 9x6mm spacer. Using tweezers, place the crystal into the setting in the silver-finished 9x6mm spacer. Let the adhesive set. Repeat to attach a Swarovski light Siam 6.1mm chaton to the second silver-finished 9x6mm spacer. Let the adhesive set for 90 minutes. Make sure to use proper ventilation when using this product.
Step 2
String one Swarovski light Siam 4mm round crystal 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. Repeat to create four Swarovski light Siam 4mm round crystal beading links.

Repeat to create eight Swarovski light Siam 4mm round crystal beading links using one Swarovski light Siam 4mm round crystal bead and one eyepin.
Step 3
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a 4mm jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the bar portion of the toggle clasp and the top loop on two Swarovski light Siam 4mm round crystal beading links. Close the jumpring.
Step 4
Open a 4.5mm jumpring. Pass it through the opposite loop on the first Swarovski light Siam 4mm round crystal beading link and the first slot on the top of a 9x8mm glass rhinestone spacer. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach the bottom loop on the second first Swarovski light Siam 4mm round crystal beading link and the first slot on the bottom of a 9x8mm glass rhinestone spacer.

Open a 4.5mm jumpring. Pass it through the top loop on a Swarovski light Siam 6mm round crystal beading link and the third slot on the bottom of a 9x8mm glass rhinestone spacer. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach the top loop on a Swarovski light Siam 6mm round crystal beading link and the fourth slot on the bottom of a 9x8mm glass rhinestone spacer.
Step 5
Repeat Step 4 to continue to attach the following components to the bracelet: One light Siam 9x6mm rhinestone spacer and two Swarovski light Siam 6mm round crystal beading links to bottom loop of the Swarovski light Siam 6mm round crystal beading links from Step 4.
Step 6
Using the flush-cutters, cut a 7-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. String onto the beading wire one crimp tube, a silver Accu-Guard™ wire protector and the bottom loop on the left Swarovski light Siam 6mm round crystal beading link. Pass the wire back through the crimp tube, 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 tube. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end. Place a crimp cover over the crimp tube then gently close it.
Step 7
String onto the beading wire the following:
  • Two silver-finished 4mm round beads
  • The right top loop on the back of the silver-finished "Together" 25x24mm heart spacer
  • One silver-finished 3mm round bead, one silver-finished 4mm round bead, and one silver-finished 3mm round beads
  • The bottom top loop on the back of the silver-finished "Together" 25x24mm heart spacer
  • One silver-finished 3mm round bead, one silver-finished 4mm round bead, and one silver-finished 3mm round beads
  • The right top loop on the back of the silver-finished "We can make" 25x24mm heart spacer
  • One silver-finished 3mm round bead, one silver-finished 4mm round bead, and one silver-finished 3mm round beads
  • The bottom top loop on the back of the silver-finished "We can make" 25x24mm heart spacer
  • The bottom top loop on the back of the silver-finished "Together" 25x24mm heart spacer
  • One silver-finished 3mm round bead, one silver-finished 4mm round bead, and one silver-finished 3mm round beads
  • The right top loop on the back of the silver-finished "a difference" 25x24mm heart spacer
  • One silver-finished 3mm round bead, one silver-finished 4mm round bead, and one silver-finished 3mm round beads
  • The bottom top loop on the back of the silver-finished "a difference" 25x24mm heart spacer
  • Two silver-finished 4mm round beads
Step 8
String on one crimp tube, a silver-plated Accu-Guard and the top loop on a Swarovski light Siam 6mm round crystal beading link. Pass the wire back through the crimp tube, pulling the wire tight against the last bead. Make sure there is no slack along the length of the bracelet. Place a small amount of gel adhesive inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim excess wire from the end. Place a crimp cover over the crimp tube then gently close it.
Step 9
Repeat Steps 6 - 8 to attach a second length of wire with beads through the left loops on the silver-finished 25x24mm heart spacers.
Step 10
Repeat Steps 3 - 5 in reverse order, to create the second half of the strand in a mirror image of the first half of the strand attaching the last 4mm jumpring to the loop on the ring portion of the toggle clasp.
