Peach Champagne Bracelet Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
This upcoming fall and winter, wedding trends are geared towards appreciating the past. Our "Peach Champagne" bracelet has wonderful displays of soft peach and antique brass that combine with delicate pearls and crystals for a romantic piece. With throwbacks to the 1950s and vintage-inspired styling, this feminine bracelet can be your something new - and look like your something old!
Step one: Glue the Swarovski 12mm rivoli in Light Peach to the center of the antique brass lacy dream filigree using E6000 glue. Allow glue to dry.
Step two: Thread each of the following beads onto their own 1.5-inch antique brass-plated 23 gauge head pin: one Swarovski 4mm round pearl in Peach, one Swarovski 3mm XILION bicone in Crystal AB and two Swarovski 3mm XILION bicones in Light Peach. Finish each head pin with a wrapped loop. For help making wrapped loops visit our handy tips. Attach each of your wrapped loops to a 4.5mm antique brass-plated 21 gauge open jump ring, and connect this jump ring to your filigree on either side of the rivoli. Repeat this process on the other side. Watch our video for help with jump rings.
Step three: Cut the 20 gauge brass non-tarnish artistic wire into one 3-inch long piece using side cutters. Create a wrapped loop on one end of your wire piece, and then string the following beads onto your wire: one Swarovski 3mm XLION bicone in Crystal AB, one Swarovski 8mm round pearl in Peach and another XILION bicone in Crystal AB. Close your wire with another wrapped loop, creating a double wrapped loop link. Repeat, this time replacing the Swarovski 8mm pearl in Peach for a Swarovski 7mm round pearl in Peach. Repeat this process one more time, this time substituting a Swarovski 6mm round pearl in Peach for the 7mm pearl. Now you have three pearl and crystal links. Use 4mm antique brass-plated open jump rings to connect these pearl and crystal links together in descending order. Add a 4mm jump ring to each of the free ends. If you are having a difficult time getting the wire to go through the pearls use the bead reamer.
Step four: Use the free jump ring closest to the 8mm pearl to connect to one end of the filigree.
Step five: Repeat steps three and four for the other side of the bracelet.
Step six: Attach the 12x5mm antique brass-plated lobster clasp to a free jump ring on one of the bracelet sides. You may add additional jump rings to the opposite side of the bracelet to lengthen it if necessary.
