Bracelet with Ceramic Beads, Lumbang Seed Beads and Wood Beads

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut a 12-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. String onto the wire one crimp tube, a 1/2 inch piece of French wire and the loop on the lobster claw clasp. Pass the wire back through the bead and crimp tube, leaving one end of the wire approximately 1-inch long. Pull the crimp tight against the French wire and the clasp so the French wire is formed in a nicely curved tube. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end.

  • 6mm round wood bead
  • 7x1mm star rondelle antique gold bead

STEP 3
String on one crimp tube, a 1/2 inch piece of French wire and a 7mm jumpring. Pass the wire back through the bead and the crimp then pull the wire snugly so the crimp and the French wire are closer to the jumpring. Make sure there is no slack along the length of the bracelet. Place a small amount of gel adhesive inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim excess wire from the end.
