Amber Memories Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

If you like Pandora-style jewelry or working with Trollbeads, this fashionable bracelet design is right up your alley. Featuring large-hole Caspia™ beads, this glamorous "Amber Memories" bracelet is easily completed in a matter of minutes and blends an array of textures and patterns while contrasting rich earth-tones with brilliant sterling silver.

Step one:
Begin by laying a 7.5-inch sterling silver 3mm bracelet flat and arranging your beads until you are pleased with their order and overall appearance. To see the specific components we used, please refer to the components list below.

Step two:
Next, unscrew the loop-end of the clasp and string on your beads. Be sure to leave some space in the bracelets for the beads to move and to prevent the bracelet from feeling stiff on the wrist. Finish by screwing the clasp back onto the bracelet, making sure to not twist it too tight.
Approximate size: 8 inches
Estimated time: Just minutes
Difficulty level: Beginner
