Luck of the Irish Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Do you need a bit of the luck o' the Irish this year? Make this wonderfully playful bracelet and carry that luck with you everywhere you go! This bracelet is slightly larger than normal, so if you want a standard 7-inch bracelet, you will have enough components left over to make earrings!

Step one: Cut a ten-inch piece of Beadalon® 7 .018 satin gold jewelry wire. Use a 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube to crimp to the loop end of the vermeil 13mm flower toggle clasp. For help using crimp tubes please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center.

Note: For the inch closest to the clasp on each end of the bracelet, leave off the slicers. This will allow room for the clasp to function.

Step two: In a random fashion string Fire Designs hand blown furnace glass green slicers, the fire polished Christmas mix beads, the 4mm gold-filled round matte beads, and the 8mm gold-filled round stardust beads. Use a crimp tube to crimp the remaining wire to the bar end of the clasp.

Step three: Attach a sterling silver oval jump ring to the sterling silver pot-o-gold charm and attach it to the small loop on the clasp.
