Autumn Colors Bracelet Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
A tree lined pathway just beginning to show its autumn colors inspired this easy bracelet. Our beautiful hand painted fall leaves porcelain bead and rich colored roundelles combine for the perfect accessory to the new fall season. We used the 24mm round fall leaves porcelain disc in our bracelet, but they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Adjust the length of your bracelet accordingly.
Step one: Cut three 10 inch strands of Beadalon® 24k gold-plated jewelry wire. For a less expensive alternative you can use Beadalon® 49 bright, B49-30F-015. Attach a 4mm gold-plated jump ring to each strand of jewelry wire using 2x2mm crimp tubes. For help using crimp tubes please see our Handy Tips section. Attach each jump ring to one section of the antique gold-plated pewter braided 3-1 link.
Step two: On each strand, string seven 9x7mm Czech glass roundelles. We alternated the colors. String all three strands of jewelry wire through the 24mm fall leaves porcelain disk. String seven more roundelles on each strand. Crimp each jewelry wire to a 4mm jump ring. Attach each jump ring to the other of the antique gold-plated pewter braided 3-1 link.
Step three: Link three 6mm gold-plated jump rings together and attach to one of the antique gold braided 3-1 links and then to one end of the antique gold leaf clasp. Repeat for the other side of the bracelet. Add more jump rings to lengthen the bracelet if needed.
