Multi-Strand Bracelet with White Lotus™ Cultured Freshwater Pearls and Seed Beads

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut an 8-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. String onto the wire one crimp tube and the first loop on a 5-strand end bar. Pass the wire back through the crimp tube leaving one end of the wire approximately one inch long. Pull the crimp tight against the loop. Place a small amount of adhesive inside the crimp (optional).

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

Place a crimp cover over the crimp tube then gently close it.
STEP 2
String onto the beading wire one white rice pearl and one bronze rocaille seed bead. Continue to alternate stringing onto the wire one of each bead for 5-3/4 inches.
STEP 3
String one crimp tube and the first loop on the other 5-strand end bar onto the beading wire. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp, and then pull the wire snuggly so the crimp is closer to the loop. Make sure there is no slack along the length of the first part of the bracelet. Place a small amount of gel adhesive inside the crimp (optional).

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

Place a crimp cover over the crimp tube then gently close it.
STEP 4
Repeat Steps 1 through 3 to attach four more strands to the second through fifth loops on the end bars.
STEP 5
Place a small amount of adhesive inside the insert portion of the first 5-strand end bar and insert it into the outer portion of the end bar. Repeat to secure the second end bar.
STEP 6
Using flush-cutters cut one 2-1/2 inch length of sterling silver flat figure-8 chain.
STEP 7
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a 4mm jumpring. Pass it through the loop on a 5-strand end bar and the loop on the loop portion of the ball and circle clasp. Close the jumpring.
STEP 8
Open a 4mm jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the other 5-strand end bar, the first link on the safety chain and the loop on the ball and circle portion of the clasp. Close the jumpring.

Open a 4mm jumpring. Pass it through the last link on the chain and the loop on the lobster claw clasp. Close the jumpring.
