Bohemian Balance Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The shape of the Czech glass button beads gives these bracelets a unique ridged texture, while the beads beautiful coloring looks like natural gemstone. Each chic bracelet is understated enough to be worn daily.

Step One: Cut a 10-inch piece of ZambaPro 49 .019 jewelry wire. Crimp one end of the wire to the loop end of the antique silver large tapered clasp set using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. Trim any excess wire. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Two: On the wire, thread three Czech glass button beads in green turquoise and three Czech glass button beads in red tiger eye. Repeat this pattern four times. Finish by threading three green turquoise beads on the wire.

Step Three: Crimp the end of the wire to the bar end of the toggle clasp using a crimp tube. Trim any excess wire.

To create the other design, simply swap the 16.1mm sterling silver oval trigger clasp and the 8mm sterling silver closed jump ring for the toggle clasp, and use the Czech glass button beads in olive and orange silk/picasso instead of the green turquoise and red tiger eye beads.
