Two-holed, vintage-inspired bone tiles mix with earthy turquoise rondelles in cross-cultural style. The clasp blends neatly into the theme of the bracelet for a perfect finish.
String a crimp bead 1/2 inch from one end of one 8-1/2 inch wire; pass short wire tail through loop on one side of clasp and back through crimp bead. Use crimp pliers to flatten and fold the crimp bead. Repeat to attach the second length of wire to opposite-side loop on same half of clasp.
On each strand of wire, string three rondelles.
String wires through one mahjong tile; string two rondelles on each wire. Repeat four additional times. String wires through one mahjongg tile; string three rondelles on each wire.
Note: The tiles have a top and bottom, so make sure all tiles face the same way.
String a crimp bead on one wire; insert wire through side loop on remaining half of clasp and back through crimp bead. Flatten and fold the crimp bead. Trim excess wire. Repeat to attach other wire to opposite-side loop on same half of clasp.
Use a jumpring to attach the charms to the center loops on the clasp.
