Step one: Center the loop end of the copper hammered toggle clasp on a 20-inch piece of Beadalon® 19 .015 30ft - satin copper. Slide a 2x2mm copper antiqued crimp over both strands of the jewelry wire up to the toggle and crimp. For help using crimps please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center.
Step two: On one strand string four natural Picasso Toho beads, a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 5040 4mm light colorado topaz faceted roundelles and three more Tohos.
Step three: Thread the jewelry wire through one side of the copper flat round 2 hole bead, add three Tohos, a roundelle and three more Tohos. Thread the jewelry wire through one side of the copper flat square 2 hole bead, add three Tohos, a roundelle and three more Tohos. Repeat the pattern twice alternating the remaining copper beads. Add three Tohos, a roundelle and four more Tohos. Use a bead stopper to hold the end of the jewelry wire.
Step four: Repeat the steps to complete the other side of the bracelet. This time starting and ending with three Tohos. Slide a crimp and the bar end of the toggle over both ends of the jewelry wire. Thread the wires back through the crimp and crimp. Trim the excess wire.
