Memoir Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Create a high-fashion bracelet in a matter of minutes using this "Memoir" design. This trendy Pandora-style bracelet features an array of Caspia™ large-hole beads in a feminine silver and pink color scheme. Use this design to make a special gift for a friend or treat yourself to a luxurious piece of jewelry.

Step one:
Begin by laying a 7.5-inch sterling silver 2mm bracelet flat and arranging your beads until you are pleased with their order and overall appearance. For the most part we alternated between sterling silver and pink beads. To see the specific components we used, please refer to the components list below.

Step two:
Next, unscrew the loop-end of the clasp and string on your beads. Be sure to leave some space in the bracelets for the beads to move and to prevent the bracelet from feeling stiff on the wrist. Finish by screwing the clasp back onto the bracelet, making sure to not twist it too tight.
Approximate size: 8 inches
