4th of July Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Express your patriotism with this Fourth of July bracelet. Wear it year round to show your pride in America. To make a matching necklace go to the Necklace section of Ideas in the Learning Center and click on Patriotic Necklace.

Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 to approximately 9 inches. Crimp one end of the wire to a figure eight connector using a 2x2mm crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please see the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Begin stringing with a double granulation Bali spacer bead. Follow with a 6mm white Swarovski pearl, Bali star spacer, another pearl, spacer, pearl then double granulation spacer followed by a 5mm Capri blue Swarovski bicone. Repeat that segment and instead of the blue bicone add a light Siam Swarovski bicone. Repeat the entire thing with a blue then a red bicone and finish with the three pearl pattern and a double granulation spacer.

Step two: Crimp the other end of the wire to a small sterling swivel clasp. Make the removable clasp by attaching the charm to an open jump ring and then to a sterling silver spring ring. Attach the spring ring to the figure eight connector. If you want to change your charm, it is easy to do with this clasp mechanism.
Approximate size: 8 inches
