Copper Illusion Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This "Copper Illusion" design beautifully contrasts pearlescent copper focal points with brilliant silver accents for a stunning bracelet that will complement any wardrobe. Create this bracelet in a matter of minutes and enjoy its timeless simplicity for years to come.

Step one:
Create a simple loop at one end of a 2-inch piece of 20 gauge sterling silver half hard wire. Thread a 12mm Swarovski round pearl large hole bead in Copper onto the wire and finish with a simple loop to create a link. Repeat nine times.

Step two:
Connect the links together using their simple loops. You may need to adjust the number of links depending on your wrist size.

Step three:
Attach a silver-plated pewter leaf toggle clasp to the bracelet using a 0.75 x 6.85mm sterling silver open jump ring at each end.
