A Woman's Fight Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Show your support for a wonderful cause with this stunning breast cancer awareness design. This fashionable multi-stranded bracelet is surprisingly simple to create and displays a lovely pink and pearlescent white color scheme. Wear this sparkly bracelet yourself or make a thoughtful gift for a fellow advocate.

Step one:
Thread three 4mm Czech glass fire-polished beads in white pearl coat onto a 20 gauge 1-inch eye pin and finish with a simple loop. Attach a sterling silver open jump ring to each end. Repeat five times and set aside. Next, thread three 6mm Czech glass fire-polished beads in metallic pink onto an eye pin, finish with a simple loop, and attach a jump ring to each end. Repeat five times and set aside. Thread a metallic pink bead onto a 22 gauge 1 1/2-inch head pin, finish with a simple loop and attach to an open jump ring. Set aside.

Step two:
Next, work left to right; connecting the spiral ring links using the bead strands from step one. First, connect the loop end of a TierraCast® antique silver-plated spiral toggle to a 16mm TierraCast® antique silver-plated spiral ring link using a sterling silver open jump ring. Next, attach three white pearl coat strands to the spiral ring link. Attach a second spiral ring link to the free ends of the white pearl strands. Attach three metallic pink strands to the second spiral ring link. Attach a 25mm TierraCast® antique silver-plated spiral ring link to the free ends of the metallic pink strands. This marks the center point of the bracelet, finish the design by mirroring what you have already created.

Step three:
Connect the last spiral ring link to the metallic pink dangle from step one. Attach the bar end of the toggle clasp to the dangle using an open jump ring. Attach a sterling silver pink awareness crystal ribbon charm to the first spiral ring link using an open jump ring.
