Triple-Strand Bracelet with Swarovski Crystal Beads, Cultured Freshwater Pearls and Sterling Silver Components

Creating the links

String onto an eyepin, one 3mm Siam bicone, an end hole on one 3-hole sterling silver spacer bead, one 4x4mm Siam AB cube crystal, an end hole on another 3-hole sterling silver spacer bead, and one 3mm Siam bicone. Form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire.

Repeat the same pattern for the middle and other end hole of the spacer beads creating a triple bead link.
