Artist's Retreat Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The mix of components in this bracelet is truly rich in appearance and feel. Warm tones of gold and brown are accented with copper and subtle shades of deep reds in ways that will keep your eye finding new things for days. You will feel like an artist when you don this striking piece, yet it takes just minutes to make!

Step one: Cut an 8 1/2 inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .014 jewelry wire. Using a 14k/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube, attach it to the loop end of the antique copper, large beaded toggle clasp. For help using crimp tubes please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: String a 4mm maroon Swarovski pearl, 6mm copper Swarovski pearl, Czech glass small petal white/transparent amber bead, copper pearl and another maroon pearl. String an ivory and beige disc, maroon pearl, copper pearl, three amber beads, copper pearl and another maroon pearl. Repeat once. String an ivory disc, maroon pearl, copper pearl, amber bead, copper pearl and a maroon pearl. Finish by crimping to the bar end of the toggle clasp.
