STEP 4
Cut two pieces of Accu-Flex beading wire 12 inches long. Cut two pieces of French wire 1/4 inch long. Hold one end of each piece of Accu-Flex together, then pass them both through one crimp tube, one crystal AB, 6mm bicone, one piece of French wire and one jumpring.

Pass the ends back through the 6mm bicone and the crimp tube, making sure that the French wire forms a loop around the jumpring. Crimp the tube using the crimping pliers. Trim off any excess Accu-Flex sticking out below the crimp tube so the beads rest close as you begin to string them.
STEP 5
Separate the strands of Accu-Flex and string onto each strand: one crystal AB, 4mm bicone and one crystal AB, 6mm bicone.
STEP 6
Pass one strand of Accu-Flex through one eye on one light rose double-loop component; pass the other strand of Accu-Flex through the other eye on the same double-loop component. String onto each strand of Accu-Flex, one crystal AB, 6mm bicone.

The crystal AB 6mm bicones will act as spacers between each of the double-loop components.
STEP 7
String on one crystal AB, 4mm bicone; jonquil, 6mm bicone double-loop components; one crystal AB, 4mm bicone double-loop component and one jonquil, 6mm bicone; light smoke topaz, 6mm bicone; jonquil, 6mm bicone double-loop component.

Be sure to string one crystal AB, 6mm bicone between each double-loop component.
STEP 8
Continue to string the double-loop components in the order you made them, placing a crystal AB, 6mm bicone between each as you string.
STEP 9
Repeat Step 7 in reverse order. Repeat Step 6, then string one crystal AB, 6mm bicone and one crystal AB, 4mm bicone--this end should mirror the other end.
STEP 10
Hold the ends of Accu-Flex together then pass them both through one crimp tube, one 6mm crystal AB bicone, one piece of French wire and one jumpring.

Pass the ends back through the 6mm bicone and the crimp tube, making sure that the French wire forms a loop around the jumpring. Crimp the tube using the crimping pliers. Trim any excess Accu-Flex.
STEP 11
Carefully open one jumpring and add the loop from one half of the clasp; close the jumpring.

Repeat to attach the other half of the clasp to the other half of the bracelet; close the jumpring.
