Mère Poule Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Honor the mother hen in your life with our Mère Poule bracelet. This simple bracelet features sparkling gemstones, dazzling SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS and a dash of silver shine. It's the perfect gift for mom or any special lady in your life.

Step one:
Cut your jewelry wire approximately 7 inches long. Crimp the end of the wire to a 5.0mm sterling silver open jump ring using a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube. For more instructions on how to use crimp tubes, please see our Handy Tip. For help on opening and closing jump rings, see our jump ring Handy Tip. Attach one half of the sterling silver toggle clasp to the jump ring.

Step two:
String three Dakota Stones green goldstone 7x12mm faceted nugget beads onto the jewelry wire, followed by a sterling silver Lassero spiral large hole bead, three more green goldstone nugget beads, a TierraCast rhodium-plated pewter classic EuroBead aligner, a sterling silver Lassero star design large hole roundel bead with Jet Swarovski crystals, another bead aligner and three more green goldstone nugget beads.

Step three:
Add the Swarovski 10.5mm BeCharmed pavé bead with Crystal baguette fancy stones on white base to the jewelry wire. Create a mirror image of the pattern from step two on the other side of the Swarovski BeCharmed bead. Crimp the end of the wire to a jump ring using another crimp tube and attach the other half of the toggle clasp.
