Multi-Strand Bracelet with Czech Glass Beads and Brass Beads

STEP 1
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a jumpring and pass it through the loop on the toggle bar portion of the clasp. Close the jumpring.

Add a second jumpring to the jumpring connected to the toggle bar.
Repeat adding a second pair of jumprings to the toggle bar.

Add a jumpring to the holes on the toggle portion of the clasp.
STEP 2
Using the side-cutting pliers, cut a 10-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 3
Carefully spread an Accu-Guard™ wire protector wide enough to fit over the jumpring. Slip the open Accu-Guard over the second jumpring in one pair of jumprings attached to the toggle bar half of the clasp.

String a gold-filled crimp bead onto the Accu-Flex® beading wire then pass the end of the beading wire through the channel of the Accu-Guard.

Pass the wire back through the crimp bead until the short end of the wire is about 1-inch long.
Move the crimp bead toward the Accu-Guard so there is little space between the crimp and the ends of the Accu-Guard. Using crimping pliers, crimp the crimp bead. Using side-cutting pliers, trim the excess wire from the short end.
STEP 4
Slip a crimp cover over the crimped crimp bead. Using the front notch of the crimping pliers, gently compress the pliers and close the crimp cover so the crimp bead is concealed.
STEP 5
String onto the beading wire the following beads:
  • Four 3x3mm brass cube beads
  • One brass chip bead
