Step one: Cut about four feet of TOHO One-G beading thread to work with. Add a needle to each end of the thread.
Step two: Add a Swarovski 3mm round pearl in Light Creamrose to the center of the thread, followed by a gold-filled 14K 4.30mm open jump ring and another pearl, as shown in Fig. 1 of this PDF Diagram.
Step three: Bring needle A through one side of another pearl, as shown in Fig. 2 of the diagram. Bring needle B through the other side of the pearl.
Step four: Add a pearl to needle A and a pearl to needle B, as shown in Fig. 3 of the diagram. Then, bring needle A through one stringing hole of a Preciosa SS20 crystal AB Rose Montee. Cross needle B through the other stringing hole of the Rose Montee.
Step five: Add three pearls to needle A and three pearls to needle B, as shown in Fig. 4 of the diagram. Bring needle A through the stringing hole of a Rose Montee and then cross needle B through the other stringing hole of the Rose Montee.
Step six: Repeat step five until your bracelet is the desired length. Our bracelet features 12 Rose Montees.
Step seven: Using needle A, add a pearl to the thread after adding your last Rose Montee, as shown in Fig. 5 of the diagram. Add a pearl to needle B, too. Bring needle A through one side of another pearl and then bring needle B through the other side of the pearl. Add a pearl to each needle, then cross the threads through a jump ring.
Step eight: Weave your thread back through the bracelet, as shown in Fig. 6 of the diagram. Adjust the beads on the thread so that all of the beads are even and straight. Knot between the pearls indicated in the diagram on both sides of the bracelet. You can weave the rest of the thread to the other end of the bracelet to reinforce it. Knot between pearls in this manner as you go. Trim and secure your thread.
Step nine: Use the jump ring attached to half of the gold-filled filigree pearl clasp to attach it to the jump ring at one end of the bracelet. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see this video tutorial. Repeat on the other end of the bracelet.
