Bracelet with Gold-Plated Brass and Rhinestone Beads and Swarovski Crystal

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters cut three 10-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 2
String onto one length of beading wire one gold-filled 2x1mm crimp bead and the top loop on the box portion of one gold-finished 13mm 3-strand clasp. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests loosely against the loop of the clasp leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite®) inside the crimp (optional).

Using crimping pliers crimp the crimp bead. Using flush-cutters trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire. Place one gold-plated 3mm crimp cover over the crimp bead then gently close it.

Repeat to attach a length of beading wire to the other two loops on the clasp.
STEP 3
String the following onto the first strand of beading wire:
  • One Swarovski light Siam 4mm round
  • The top loop on one gold-finished green rhinestone spacer
  • One Swarovski white 4mm round pearl
  • The top loop on two gold-finished green rhinestone spacers
  • One Swarovski emerald 8x8mm cube
  • The top loop on two gold-finished green rhinestone spacers
  • Five Swarovski white 4mm round pearls
  • The top loop on two gold-finished green rhinestone spacers
  • One Swarovski white 4mm round pearl
  • The top loop on one gold-finished green rhinestone spacer
  • One Swarovski emerald 8x8mm cube
  • The top loop on one gold-finished green rhinestone spacer
  • One Swarovski white 4mm round pearl
STEP 4
Continue to string the following:
  • Repeat to string a total of four sets:
    • The top loop on one gold-finished green rhinestone spacer
    • One Swarovski light Siam 8x8mm cube
  • The top loop on one gold-finished green rhinestone spacer
STEP 5
Repeat the stringing sequence in Step 3 in the opposite direction then place a Bead Stopper™ on the end of the strand to secure.
STEP 6
String the following onto the second strand of beading wire:
  • One Swarovski light Siam 4mm round
  • The middle loop on the spacer from Step 3
  • One Swarovski white 4mm round pearl
  • The middle loop on the next four spacers from Step 3
  • Five Swarovski white 4mm round pearls
  • The middle loop on the next two spacers
  • One Swarovski white 4mm round pearl
  • The middle loop on the next two spacers
  • One Swarovski white 4mm round pearl
STEP 7
Continue to string the middle loop on the next five spacers. Repeat Step 6 in the opposite direction then place a Bead Stopper on the end of the strand to secure.
STEP 8
Repeat Steps 3 - 5 to using the third hole on the spacers place a Bead Stopper on the end of the strand to secure.
STEP 9
Remove the Bead Stopper from Step 5 and string one crimp bead and the top loop on the tab portion of the clasp. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp bead. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests loosely against the loop of the clasp leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end.

Repeat to attach the second to the middle loop and third strand to the bottom loop on the clasp. Adjust the strand so they lay evenly. Place a small amount of adhesive (Loctite) inside the crimp (optional).

Using crimping pliers crimp each crimp bead. Using flush-cutters trim the excess from the short ends of the beading wire then place a crimp cover over each crimp bead.
