Bavaria Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Joyful gemstone colors make this bracelet a delight. Swarovski crystal pearls in rich Dark Lapis colors complement the fire-polished beads in ruby, sapphire, and peridot colors wonderfully. TierraCast spacers add a hint of silver beauty. You can create your own take on this bracelet by switching out the colors for your favorites.

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 10 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto the end, followed by half of the TierraCast 1/2-inch antique silver-plated pewter Anna's toggle clasp set. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Step two:
Slide a green fire-polished bead onto a 1-inch 24 gauge sterling silver head pin and make a wrapped loop at the top of the bead. Repeat three times.

Step three:
Slide a fire-polished 4mm bead in sapphire onto a head pin and make a wrapped loop at the top of the bead. Repeat three times.

Step four:
Slide a ruby fire-polished bead onto a head pin and make a wrapped loop at the top of the bead. Repeat six times.

Step five:
Open a sterling silver 4.60mm jump ring and add a ruby, sapphire, and green dangle. Close the jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see this video tutorial. Repeat three times for four multi-colored dangles.

Step six:
Add the following bead pattern to the wire:
  • One Swarovski 5mm round pearl in Dark Lapis
  • One TierraCast silver 4mm hex heishi spacer
  • One fire-polished 4mm bead in ruby
  • One spacer
  • One 5mm Dark Lapis pearl, one spacer, one fire-polished 4mm bead in green, one spacer (repeat two times)
  • One 5mm Dark Lapis pearl
  • One Swarovski 3mm round pearl in Dark Lapis
  • One Swarovski 4mm XILION bicone in Capri Blue AB and one 3mm Dark Lapis pearl, one multi-colored dangle, and one 3mm Dark Lapis pearl (repeat three times)
  • One bicone
  • One 3mm Dark Lapis pearl
  • One 5mm Dark Lapis pearl, one spacer, one green fire-polished bead, one spacer (repeat two times)
  • One 5mm Dark Lapis pearl
  • One spacer
  • One ruby fire-polished bead
  • One spacer
  • One 5mm Dark Lapis pearl
Add a crimp tube to the end of the strand, followed by the other half of the toggle clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Step seven:
Open a jump ring and add three ruby dangles. Attach the jump ring to the ring on one half of the clasp.
