Brogan's Knot - Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Celebrate the eternity of life, love and nature with this Brogan's Knot design. A rustic Celtic knot charm stands out among sparkling Czech glass beads for beautiful contrast in luster.

Step one:
Thread the eye-end of an antique brass leaf hook and eye clasp onto a 10-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 30ft jewelry wire and fasten using a 2mm antique brass-plated crimp bead. For help using crimp tubes refer to the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Two:
Thread one 6mm Czech fire-polished bead in opaque red bronze luster followed by three 8mm Czech fire-polished beads in opaque green luster. Repeat once. Add one 6mm red bronze luster followed by two 8mm green luster. Thread one large antique brass eternal knot button; this marks the center-point of the bracelet. To finish the design, mirror the pattern of the beads already on the strand.

Step Three:
Attach the hook-end of the antique brass leaf hook and eye clasp using a crimp bead. When you apply this final crimp be sure to leave enough space for the beads on the bracelet to bend to avoid a stiff, uncomfortable result. Trim excess jewelry wire.
