Alyssa's Bridesmaid Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

This bracelet was originally made for Alyssa to wear on Maggie's wedding, but she loved it so much, she added it to her everyday collection. For the matching necklace, please click here. For the earrings, click here.

Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 8 inches. Crimp one end of the wire to one side of the clasp using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. For instructions on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover with a crimp cover.

Step two: String a 12mm Swarovski amethyst cosmic bead followed by a 4mm sterling silver matte diamond cut bead, another amethyst cosmic bead, diamond cut, a 12mm Swarovski light amethyst cosmic bead, another diamond cut, sterling silver flower petal outline bead cap, Swarovski 8mm powder rose pearl, another bead cap and a diamond cut bead. At this point you will add your bead frame. String the wire through one side of the bead frame, a 2mm Swarovski rose faceted round bead, 12mm amethyst cosmic bead, another 2mm rose and back through the bead frame. Now you simply reverse the pattern as you work back toward the other clasp. Crimp the remaining wire to the other side of the clasp, trim the excess wire and cover with a crimp cover.
Approximate size: 6 inches; to make it longer, simply add Swarovski cosmic beads separated by the 4mm matte diamond cut beads
Difficulty level: Beginner
