Lush Verde Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Tracy Gonzales for TierraCast

Beautiful green seed beads pair with TierraCast spacer beads to create the look of Lush Verde. Tracy attached two strands of beads to each open hole on the D ring toggle set for a look brimming with beaded beauty. You can find more inspiration for using multi-strand connectors in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately ten inches long. Slide a TierraCast 2x2mm brass oxide brass crimp tube onto the end and then bring the wire through the first hole on one TierraCast brass oxide pewter 5 hole D ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Step two:
String on a random mix of TOHO 8/0 bead rounds in trans-rainbow grass green and TierraCast brass oxide pewter granulated beads until the strand is the desired length, keeping in mind the clasp adds about 1 1/4-inch of length. When you are done, slide a crimp tube onto the wire, followed by the first hole on the other D ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Step three:
Repeat steps one and two for the same hole on the D rings. Then repeat steps one through three for every hole on the D rings. Attach the bar component of the toggle set to one of the D rings using two TierraCast medium oval brass oxide pewter open jump rings linked together. For help opening and closing jump rings, see this video tutorial.
