Graduation Bracelet 2003 Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This elegant graduation bracelet is strung on ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire.

Step one: To begin cut a 10-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. Use a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube to crimp to an open jump ring. For help using crimp tubes please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Attach the spring ring clasp and the diploma charm to the open jump ring.

Step two: String a 5mm sterling silver corrugated round bead followed by a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 8mm Rosaline crystal bicone, another silver bead, and then a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 8mm Capri blue crystal bicone. Repeat this until you have reached the middle of your bracelet.

Step three: When you arrive at the middle of your bracelet, add a closed jump ring with the graduation year of your choice. Continue stringing the rest of your beads. Using the same technique to string the center charm complete the bracelet by adding a silver bead, your last charm and another silver bead.

Step four: Crimp the other end of the jewelry wire to a closed jump ring.
