STEP 1
Cut one 12-inch length and one 8-inch length of beading wire.
STEP 2
Fold the 8-inch wire in half at its center then twist the ends together to create a working handle.

String onto the 12-inch length of beading wire: one crimp and one Accu-Guard™ wire protector. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Crimp then trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire.
STEP 3
Pass two small jumprings through the Accu-Guard and the working handle then close.

Note: This project will be working down and around the beading wire; be sure to keep the wire in the middle of the jumprings.

Attach one large smooth jumpring to both small jumprings on one side of the Accu-Guard then attach one large smooth jumpring to both small jumprings on the opposite side of the Accu-Guard.
STEP 4
Attach one small jumpring to both previously attached large smooth jumprings on one side of the beading wire then attach one small jumpring to the same two large smooth jumprings on the opposite side of the beading wire.
STEP 5
Attach one large twisted jumpring to both previously attached small jumprings on one side of the beading wire then attach one large twisted jumpring to the same two small jumprings on the opposite side of the beading wire.
STEP 6
String one bead onto the beading wire. Slide the bead down the wire so it lies between the two large twisted jumprings.
STEP 7
Attach one small jumpring to both large twisted jumprings on one side of the beading wire then attach one small jumpring to the same two large twisted jumprings on the opposite side of the beading wire.
STEP 8
Attach one large smooth jumpring to both small jumprings on one side of the beading wire then attach one large smooth jumpring to the same two small jumprings on the opposite side of the beading wire.
STEP 9
String one bead into the beading wire. Slide the bead down the wire so it lies between the two large smooth jumprings.
STEP 10
Continue to repeat Steps 4 - 9 until the bracelet is the desired length.
