Before beginning this design, decide what method of multi-strand stringing is easiest for you. On something like this bracelet, you can do both strands simultaneously or string one, and when that is complete, string the second. These instructions string two strands at once, but either way is fine.
Step one: Cut two lengths of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately nine inches. Attach the strands to the loop end of the antique silver heirloom 2-loop clasp set using sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tubes. For detailed instructions on how to use crimp tubes, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step two: String both sides evenly, making sure to mind the ends of your wires so that you don't lose any beads. Begin with a Swarovski 6mm round pearl with a Tahitian look, follow with an antique silver small Turkish heishi spacer, Swarovski 8mm faceted bicone in Crystal AB, another spacer, Swarovski 5mm round pearl with Tahitian look, spacer, 8mm crystal AB bicone, spacer and a 6mm pearl. This pattern will finish the first section of the bracelet. When both strands are completed, add the rhodium hourglass two-hole link and begin the pattern again.
Step three: Repeat the pattern for a total of four times, finishing at the bar end of the toggle clasp. Crimp the remaining wire to the bar and trim the excess. This simple bracelet is sure to impress.
