Bracelet with Citrine Gemstone Beads, Hessonite Garnet Gemstone Beads and Sterling Silver Chain

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut the following:
  • Twelve 1-inch and thirteen 1/2 inch lengths of 18-gauge textured sterling silver wire
  • Six 3/4 inch lengths of 28-gauge sterling silver wire
  • One 3-3/4 inch length of 10x5mm elongated cable chain
STEP 2
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and flush-cutters, form a 5mm loop on one end of a 1-inch length of 18-gauge textured sterling silver wire. Create a 5mm loop in the opposite direction, creating a figure eight. Repeat to create seven figure eight links.
STEP 3
Form a 12mm loop using a 1-inch length of 18-gauge textured sterling silver wire creating a 12mm jumpring. Repeat to create a total of twelve 12mm jumprings.

Repeat to create thirteen 6mm jumprings using 1/2 inch lengths of 18-gauge textured sterling silver wire.
STEP 4
Form a V-shape in the center of a 3/4 inch length of 28-gauge sterling silver wire. Using chain-nose pliers, bend 2mm on one end of the wire to a 90 degree angle. Repeat on the other end of the wire to create a bail. Repeat 5 times to create six bails.
STEP 5
Fit the ends of the bail through the hole on a 6x5mm faceted teardrop hessonite bead. Use a pair of chain-nose pliers to compress the picks of the bail further into the bead. Repeat to attach a bail to three 6x5mm faceted teardrop hessonite beads and three 8x5mm flat briolette citrine beads.
STEP 6
Using a fine grade of sand paper, gently sand the 3-3/4 inch length of 10x5mm elongated cable chain and a 10.5x6mm swivel lobster claw clasp to create a matte finish.
STEP 7
Open a 6mm fancy jumpring. Pass it through the loop on the clasp and the first link on the 3-3/4 inch length of 10x5mm elongated cable chain. Close the jumpring.
STEP 8
Open a figure eight link. Pass it through the last link on the 3-3/4 inch length of 10x5mm elongated cable chain. Close the link.
STEP 9
Open a 6mm textured jumpring. Pass it though the opposite side of the figure eight link, a 12mm textured jumpring and the first loop on a figure eight link. Repeat to attach a second 6mm textured jumpring next to the first jumpring creating a double jumpring.

Repeat four times for a total of five sets of links.
STEP 10
Open a 6mm textured jumpring. Pass it though the opposite side of the last figure eight link and 12mm textured jumpring and the first loop on a figure eight link. Repeat to attach a second 6mm textured jumpring next to the first jumpring.
