Christy's Gift Bracelet Instructions


Carrie presented her bridesmaids with a choice of two sets of bridesmaid's jewelry each! Each one was unique and made to complement their personality. After much deliberation, they each chose the styles they liked best, thinking those were the items they got to keep. They were right, but Carrie also surprised them with a thank you gift of the second set of jewelry on her wedding day! Be sure to check out Christy's matching necklace and earrings.

Step one: Cut three strands of ZambaPro™ jewelry wire to approximately 9 inches. Crimp each wire to a sterling silver eye pin using 2x2mm crimp tubes. For help with Crimping please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: On the first strand, string a sterling silver oval S-cut bead followed by a Swarovski 14mm aquamarine twist bead and another S-cut oval. Add a sterling silver wavy tube bead, an opaque espresso bean Delica, Swarovski 6mm cream pearl, 8mm faceted round light Colorado topaz, another pearl, another Delica and one more wavy tube bead. Repeat this pattern once and finish with an S-cut oval bead. Crimp the end of the wire to another eye pin, leaving about 1/8-inch of wire exposed so that all three strands will fit in the cone.

Step three: On the next strand, string a sterling silver curved tube spacer with beads followed by a 6mm Swarovski aqua faceted round, two more curved spacers, another aqua round, a wavy tube bead, Delica, 6mm Swarovski cream pearl, 8mm faceted light Colorado topaz round, another pearl, a Delica and a wavy spacer. Add another aqua round, two curved spacers with beads, aqua round, wavy spacer, Delica, pearl, light Colorado topaz bead, pearl and Delica. Again, you will want to leave about 1/8 inch of wire exposed and finish by crimping to the other eye pin.

Step four: On the final strand, string a Delica, Swarovski pearl, 8mm light Colorado topaz, pearl, Delica, wavy tube bead, S-cut oval bead, Delica, Swarovski aqua twist, Delica, S-cut bead and a wavy tube bead. Repeat the pattern once and finish with a 6mm Swarovski light Colorado topaz round bead. Pull the wire flush to the eye pin and crimp.

Step five: Pull one of the eye pins through a cone. Attach it to one side of the toggle clasp and finish with a wrapped loop. Do the same for the other end of the bracelet.
