Multi-Strand Bracelet with Sea Green New "Jade" Gemstone Beads, Swarovski Crystal Beads and 14Kt Gold-Filled Beads and Chain

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut two 7-1/4 inch lengths of gold-filled 3mm flat curb chain.
STEP 2
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a gold-filled 4.5mm jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the toggle ring portion of the clasp. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach a 4.5mm jumpring to the toggle bar portion of the clasp.
STEP 3
Open a gold-filled 6mm jumpring. Pass it through the 4.5mm jumpring on the toggle ring portion of the clasp and the first link on two 7-1/4 inch lengths of gold-filled 3mm flat curb chain. Close the jumpring. Repeat to attach the last link on the two 7-1/4 inch lengths of gold-filled 3mm flat curb chain to the 4.5mm jumpring attached to the toggle bar portion of the clasp.

STEP 4
Using the flush-cutters, cut a 10-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. Then string onto the wire, one crimp tube and a 1/2 inch piece of French wire. Pass the wire through the 6mm round jumpring attached to the toggle ring portion of the clasp and back through the crimp tube, leaving one end of the wire approximately 1-inch long. Pull the crimp tight against the French wire and the jumpring so the French wire forms a nicely curved tube. Place a small amount of gel 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.

For a more finished look, place a crimp cover over the crimp tube then gently close it.
