Bracelet with Czech Fire-Polished Glass Beads, Celestial Crystal® Beads and Polyester-Covered Wire

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut six 12-inch lengths of purple polyester-covered wire.
STEP 2
Using one pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a 4mm jumpring. Pass the open jumpring through the loop on the toggle ring portion of the clasp. Close the jumpring.

Repeat to add a 4mm jumpring to the loop on the toggle bar protion of the clasp.
STEP 3
Using flush-cutters, cut a 12-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. String onto the wire one crimp tube, a 1/2 inch piece of French wire and the jumpring attached to the toggle ring portion of the clasp. Pass the wire back through the crimp tube leaving one end of the wire approximately 1-inch long. Pull the crimp tight against the French wire and the clasp so the French wire is formed in a nicely curved tube. Place a small amount of adhesive inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim excess wire from the end.
STEP 4
String onto the beading wire one of each of the following components:
  • 4mm faceted round lilac fire-polished bead
  • 6x2mm rondelle antique brass pewter bead
  • 8mm faceted round purple and gold fire-polished bead
  • 6x2mm rondelle antique brass pewter bead
  • 6x3 faceted disc AB turquoise blue crystal bead
STEP 5
Tie one end of a 12-inch length of purple fabric covered wire around the beading wire. Start to wrap the fabric wire around the beading wire loosely to create a "polyester-covered wire" bead approximately 10mm long. String onto the polyester-covered wire one #6 frosted teal seed bead. Continue to wrap the fabric wire adding ten random #6 seed beads along the length of the wire until all the polyester-covered wire has been wrapped around the beading wire. Wrap the end of the fabric wire around the beading wire to secure the created bead in place.
STEP 6
String onto the beading wire one of each of the following components:
  • #6 matte lilac seed bead
  • 6x2mm rondelle antique brass pewter bead
  • 4mm faceted round turquoise crystal bead
  • 6x2mm rondelle antique brass pewter bead
  • #6 matte lilac seed bead
  • polyester-covered wire bead

  • 6x2mm rondelle antique brass pewter bead
  • 8mm faceted round purple and gold fire-polished bead

  • 4mm faceted round lilac fire-polished bead
STEP 9
String on one crimp tube, a 1/2 inch piece of French wire and the jumpring on the toggle bar portion of the clasp. Pass the beading wire back through crimp, then pull the wire snugly so the crimp and the French wire are closer to the jumpring. Make sure there is no slack along the length of the first part of the bracelet. Place a small amount of adhesive inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim excess wire from the end.
