Beth's Beach Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

This beautiful pearl and Swarovski crystal bracelet was made for Beth to wear in Maggie's wedding. It became one of her year-round favorites! For a matching necklace, click here. For earrings, click here.

Step one: Cut two lengths of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 11 inches. Put a 2x2mm crimp tube over both wires and slide it approximately 1½ inches from the end. Crimp the wires together and trim one of the wires flush with the crimp tube so that you have one 1½ inch piece of wire left. For instructions on how to crimp, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. String another crimp tube onto the short end of the single wire and loop it through one side of the sterling silver clasp. Pull it back through the second crimp tube, crimp and trim the excess wire. Cover both crimp tubes with sterling silver crimp covers.

Step two: On one of the wires, alternate 3mm Swarovski faceted round crystals with light orange nugget pearls. Start and end with a crystal. String until you have 16 nugget pearls and 17 crystals. Hold this wire with a Bead Stopper while you work on the other side.

Step three: String a 4mm Swarovski silk faceted bicone followed by five orange head-drilled pearls. Repeat this pattern seven times and finish with one more silk crystal. String both wires through a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube and crimp them together. Trim one of the wires flush with the crimp tube. String another crimp tube on the remaining wire, loop it through the other end of the clasp and crimp. Cover both crimp tubes with sterling silver crimp covers. You can wear this bracelet loose or twist it for a beautiful, more elegant look. This will shorten the length, so you may want to add a few more beads if you need it to be longer.
