Forest Flourish Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Rivoli rhinestones from Swarovski are the star of this bracelet. The rich green gleam of the Rivolis pairs nicely with the rustic brown leather and vintage brass findings. You can see how Cynthia made this bracelet and more ways to use Rivolis in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Place a Swarovski 12mm Rivoli in Crystal Royal Green Shiny into a JBB antique brass 2-strand round crown bezel link. Close the prongs of the bezel around the Rivoli using pliers to secure it in place. Repeat this step two times for a total of three Rivoli links.

Step two:
Cut a length of 1.5mm natural red brown round leather approximately 1 1/2 inches long. Add a JBB 2.5mm antique brass fancy crimp end cap with loop to each end of the leather and crimp it in place by squeezing down on the middle of the crimp end using chain nose pliers. Repeat this step three times for a total of four leather strands.

Step three:
Attach a leather piece to each loop on the end of a Rivoli link using a 4.5mm antique brass-plated 21 gauge open jump ring for each. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see this video. Attach another Rivoli link to each loop on the other end of the Rivoli link using a jump ring for each. Attach the third Rivoli link to each loop on the end of the second Rivoli link using a jump ring for each. Attach a leather piece to each loop on the end of the third Rivoli link using a jump ring for each.

Step four:
Attach a jump ring to each leather piece at one end of your bracelet. Attach half of the JBB antique vintage brass-plated pewter flower toggle clasp to these jump rings using one jump ring. Repeat this step on the other end of the bracelet.
