Bracelet with Swarovski Crystal Beads, Czech Glass Druk Beads and Celestial Crystal® Beads

Capture the essence of a Victorian Christmas with a Christmas rose bracelet that sparkles with Swarovski crystal rondelles nestled between white, green and red beads.
STEP 1
Measure and cut a 10-inch length of brick red Accu-flex® professional quality beading wire. Thread onto the wire, a crimp bead and the loop on one half of the gold-plated double ball magnetic clasp. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead, leaving one end of the wire approximately 1-inch long, then pull the crimp and bead tight against the loop of the clasp. Using your crimping pliers, crimp the crimp bead. Using the side-cutting pliers, cut the 1-inch tail.
STEP 2
String a white 8mm glass druk bead and a gold-plated Swarovski crystal rondelle onto the beading wire and repeat this pattern four more times. String on one more white 8mm white glass druk bead.

Continue stringing one of each of the following:
  • 4mm Celestial Crystal® peridot green round
  • Emerald green flower cone
  • Red Celestial Crystal AB teardrop
  • Gold-plated Swarovski crystal rondelle
  • Hyacinth Swarovski crystal bicone
  • Gold-plated Swarovski crystal rondelle
  • Red Celestial Crystal AB teardrop
  • Emerald green flower cone
  • 4mm Celestail Crystal peridot green round
String a white 8mm glass druk bead and a gold-plated Swarovski crystal rondelle onto the beading wire and repeat this pattern four more times. String on one more white 8mm white glass druk bead.
STEP 3
Thread onto the beading wire, a crimp bead and thread through the loop on the other half of the gold-plated double ball magnetic clasp. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead then pull the wire snugly so the crimp and the clasp are closer to the beads. Make sure there is no slack along the length of the bracelet yet the strand is not taught, it should have a nice drape. Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp bead. Cut the tail of the beading wire. Place a crimp cover over the crimp bead then, using chain-nose pliers, close the crimp cover.
