Autism Awareness Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Autism awareness is coming to the forefront as more and more people are diagnosed with this challenging condition. Show your support with this autism awareness bracelet that incorporates the symbolic puzzle piece charm and guardian angels.

Step one: Attach a sterling silver open jump ring to the puzzle piece charm and set aside. Attach a sterling silver open jump ring to each side of the antique rhodium pewter clasp. Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately ten inches. Using 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tubes, attach one end of the wire to the jump ring on the bar end of the clasp. Cover the crimp tube with a crimp cover. For help using crimp tubes please *Click Here* (http://www.artbeads.com/howtousecrto.html). Check out our Learning Center for instructions on how to use crimp covers

Step two: String a 6mm Czech glass fire-polished two-tone green/rose AB bead followed by a 3mm sterling silver seamless round bead. Alternate these beads until you have six fire-polished beads. Add an 11x8mm pear-shaped Swarovski pearl in creamrose with the wider end facing the beads you have already strung. Add antique silver (pewter) angel wings with the tips of the wings facing the beads. String an 8mm Swarovski round creamrose pearl followed by a 5mm peridot and silver Swarovski roundelle. String five more Fire-polished beads with 3mm sterling silver rounds in between and make another angel, this one with a 5mm rose and silver Swarovski roundelle "halo". Follow with five more Fire-polished beads with silver rounds between them. Finish with a silver round bead, peridot and silver Swarovski roundelle, the puzzle piece charm, rose and silver roundelle and one more fire-polished bead.

Step three: Crimp the remaining wire to the jump ring that is attached to the loop end of the toggle. Cover the crimp tube with a crimp cover. Trim the excess wire.
