Bracelet with Art Glass Beads

Christmas is a favorite holiday for many. It's a time for family gatherings, celebrating with friends, festivities and sharing holiday traditions. Enjoy the holidays with a festive Candy Cane Lane glass bracelet that is a snap to complete and fun to give as a gift.
STEP 1
Measure and cut a 10-inch length of brick red Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. Thread onto the beading wire, one crimp bead and the loop on the ring half of the pewter shooting star toggle clasp.

Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead, leaving one end of the wire approximately one-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.

For a professional finish, place a crimp cover over the crimp bead, then, using chain-nose pliers, gently close the crimp cover for a secure fit.
STEP 2
String one of each of the following onto the beading wire:
  • Siam Swarovski cube bead
  • White square seed bead
  • 7mm Sterling silver rondelle
  • 12mm green glass bead

STEP 3
String onto the beading wire, a crimp bead and the loop on the other half of the pewter shooting star toggle 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 taut, 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.
