Get inspired by Swarovski design team's limitless imagination. Magical project ideas bring a new dimension to simple techniques.
Wrap 140cm of 1mm wire 24 times around a 12mm diameter stick.
Remove stick and pull the wrapped wire apart as shown in illustration.
Cut off the wire ends using a side cutter leaving half a loop on both ends. Bend wire at a right angle and form a small loop on both ends using the round nose pliers. Cut off excess using side cutter. Open loops using two flat nose pliers.
Pull the two ends together and hook the small end loops around the larger loops of the bracelet as shown in the illustration. (You can hook them on any of the loops to make the bracelet the correct size for your wrist.) Close the loops using flat nose pliers.
Cut off 125cm of the 0.6 mm wire using side cutters. Bend wire to a right angle and form a loop using the round nose pliers. Cut off excess using side cutter.
Open the loop sideways using flat-nose pliers. Insert it to bangle as shown in illustration and close the loop. Slide on first Swarovski XILION Bead article 5328 5mm.
Bend wire into a loop which will go through bangle as shown in illustration and repeat step until first row is complete using the Swarovski Beads article 5328 5mm one after another.
Repeat steps 5-7 until second row is complete using the Swarovski Beads article 5328 6mm one after another, looping the wire in the opposite direction for this second row.
Repeat steps 5-6 to secure the end of wire to bracelet.
