This bracelet embodies elegance and femininity with its Swarovski crystal pastel rose pearls and pink organza ribbon detailing. The Swarovski crystal pearls have a powdery surface that adds sophistication to any wrist. At the heart of each Swarovski pearl lies a solid core of Swarovski crystal, which is covered in layers of pearlescent “nacre” to create a flawless, silky-smooth surface that resists cosmetics, chemicals and perfume. The soft organza ribbon is brilliantly strung throughout the design for a whimsical effect that ...
Cut one 9-1/2 inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire and one 26-inch length of pink organza ribbon.
Pass the loop on one white topaz bail enhancer through the loop on one pink with silver-colored glitter heart with awareness ribbon charm then close.
String onto the beading wire: one crimp and one Accu-Guard™ wire protector. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end.
Crimp, then trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire. Finish with a 4mm crimp cover.
Trim the end of the beading wire into an angled point.
Leaving a tail of pink organza ribbon approximately 2-3/4 inches in length, fold approximately a 1/2 inch of the ribbon, after the tail, in on itself then string the fold onto the beading wire.
Continue to string one pastel rose 8mm pearl then wrap a section of the ribbon around one side of the pearl. Fold over a 1/2 inch of the ribbon then string the fold onto the beading wire.
Repeat pattern to add ten pastel rose 8mm pearls, two pastel rose 6mm pearls and then string another ten pastel rose 8mm pearls.
Repeat Step 3 to secure bracelet.
Tip: The ribbon should be kept taught rather than loose to help maintain the design.
Place the bail between the middle two pastel rose 6mm pearls and secure.
Pass one 6mm jumpring through the loop on one 13x3mm fold-over clasp then close.
Pass one 4mm jumpring through the 6mm jumpring and the Accu-Guard on one end of the bracelet then close.
Pass one 8mm jumpring through the remaining Accu-Guard on the opposite end of the bracelet.
