Fruit Slices Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The bright, juicy colors bursting from this bracelet will light up your wrist with a warm feeling. Its simple design makes for a fast and easy creation while the wild colors make it perfect for a spring outfit.

Step one:
Cut one piece of jewelry wire approximately 11 inches long. Attach one end to a 5.5mm satin hamilton gold-plated 21 gauge open jump ring using a 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube. Then, cover the crimp tube with a 3mm gold-filled crimp cover. Read our Handy Tips on how to use a crimp tube and how to use a crimp cover if you need help.

Step two:
String one Swarovski 6mm faceted round in Purple Velvet then string the following pattern onto the jewelry wire:
  • one Swarovski 8mm margarita bead in Fuchsia
  • one 12mm margarita bead in Rose
  • one yellow and orange roundel bead
  • one 12mm margarita bead in Rose
  • one Swarovski 8mm margarita bead in Fuchsia
  • one Swarovski 6mm faceted round in Purple Velvet
Repeat this pattern six more times. Finish the other end of the wire with a second jump ring, crimp tube and crimp cover.

Step three:
Attach the loop portion of the TierraCast gold hammered star toggle to one jump ring and the bar portion of the clasp to the other jump ring. Watch our Handy Tip video to learn how to open and close a jump ring.
