We're sorry, but one or more of the items in this Idea is no longer available on our site. Please consider using our suggested alternative product below or selecting another similar product from our store.
This absolutely breathtaking bracelet is sure to garner the attention it deserves. Its random pattern makes it easy to string. Add some quick and easy "wow" to your wardrobe with this striking piece!

Step one: Cut a length of Soft Flex 0.19 jewelry wire to approximately 91/2 inches (or an inch longer than your wrist size). Attach it to one end of the sterling silver twig design toggle with a 2x2mm crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to use crimp tubes, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: Randomly string your beads in a style that you like. The key to "planned randomness" is to begin and end with the same bead. In this example our designer chose the Hill Tribe silver small roundel. You should also space your larger beads as evenly as possible and keep your color "weighted" the same. In other words, if you have a bold bead like the aqua on black dichroic on one side, you will want to make sure to include a similar one on the other side so that your color balances.

Step three: When you have strung the beads to your desired length, finish with a 2x2 sterling silver crimp tube. Many people enjoy the planned random designs. They can be specific like this one with particular focal beads, or a bottom of the bead box clean up, when you have only a few of each bead left.
Approximate size: 8½ inches
