Horse Tail Bracelet Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Wire can allow you to create custom findings for your jewelry, like the beaded links featured in this bracelet. The shining green wire complements the Fern Green and Petrol Swarovski beads perfectly. The wrapped loops also add texture to the overall piece. Make this bracelet to find out what you can do with craft wire!
Step one: Cut a three-inch length of Artbeads Designer Wire, 18 gauge Peridot. Create a wrapped loop on one end. For help making wrapped loops, please see our Wrapped Loop Handy Tip. String a Swarovski 6mm mini round bead in Fern Green onto the wire, Followed by a Swarovski 12mm coin pearl in Petrol and another Fern Green mini round bead. Create a wrapped loop on the other end of the wire. Repeat this step four times for a total of five beaded links.
Step two: Attach the end of one link to the end of another using two sterling silver 4.6mm open jump rings. See how to properly open and close jump rings with this Jump Ring Handy Tip Video. Connect all of your beaded links in this manner.
Step three: Add the JBB antique silver-plated pewter leaves toggle clasp to the ends of your bracelet using one jump ring for each end.
