Add springtime sparkle to your jewelry collection this season using colorful Swarovski crystal pearls and montees for an elegant bracelet you'll cherish forever.
Make a dangle by stringing one 3mm Swarovski jonquil crystal bicone onto a 26-gauge headpin. Secure with a wrapped loop. Repeat this Step to make 40 bead dangles in all. Set aside.
String one mauve pearl onto a 22-gauge headpin. Begin a wrapped loop but before making the wrap, attach to an end loop of the clasp. Finish the wrap.
Repeat so that one mauve pearl dangle is on the top and bottom loops on each side of the clasp. Repeat again using a green pearl dangle and attaching to the middle loops on each side of the clasp. Set clasp aside.
Cut sixteen 2-inch pieces of 22-gauge wire. Make double simple loops on one end of each of the wire pieces; like a key ring.
On one wire piece, string one green pearl, one rose montee, one mauve pearl, one peridot montee and one green pearl. Make a double loop to secure the beads and set aside. On a second wire piece, string one mauve pearl, one peridot montee, one green pearl, one rose montee, and one mauve pearl. Make a double loop to secure the beads and set aside.
Place the two strung wires next to each other so the different colors of montees are side by side.
Create diamond shapes by stringing one green pearl onto another piece of wire and crossing that wire through one peridot montee from the first wire laid out in Step 5. String one mauve pearl onto the same wire and cross through the opposite rose montee. String one green pearl and make a double loop to secure the beads. String one mauve pearl on another wire and cross through the rose montee on the first wire. String one green pearl onto that wire and cross through the opposite peridot montee. String on one more mauve pearl and make a double loop to secure the beads.
Repeat to make 4 wire diamonds in all.
Place the diamonds side by side so the pink montees are on top and the peridot montees are on the bottom.
Link the double loops of two diamonds together using a jumpring. Before closing the rings, add 4 jonquil dangles made in Step 1 onto each ring.
Note: It looks best when you attach dangles to the outside edge of the bracelet.
Use jumprings to link the bracelet ends to the open loops remaining on the clasp. Before closing the rings, add 4 more jonquil dangles to each ring as in Step 8.
