Modern Fairytale Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Who needs to leave behind a glass slipper when you've got this stunning bracelet? With sparkling crystals and Swarovski pearls, this bracelet is sure to capture the attention of your prince charming.

Before beginning you need to decide what method of stringing multi-strand pieces is easiest for you. On something like this bracelet, you can either do both strands simultaneously, or string one, and when that is complete, string the second. These instructions are for the two strands at once method, but either way is fine.

Step One: On a 1.25-inch rhodium bead bar link, string one 8mm sterling silver satin bead with April crystals, one 6x9mm sterling silver cylinder bead and one satin bead. Repeat. Set aside.

Step Two: On a bead bar, string one satin bead, one 8mm Stardust 3xS cut bead and one satin bead. Repeat. Set aside.

Step Three: On a bead bar string one 6mm round CZ slider, two 8mm Stardust 3xS cut beads and one slider. Repeat. Set aside.

Step Four: Cut two 10-inch pieces of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. Crimp one end of each jewelry wire to a .75mm sterling silver open jump ring using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. For help with crimp tubes, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover the crimp tube with a sterling silver crimp cover. Using the jump rings, attach the wire strands to the heart piece of the sterling silver filigree heart toggle. For help with jump rings, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Five: On the top strand of wire string, in this order: 7mm pearl, roundelle, 9mm pearl, roundelle, 9mm pearl, TierraCast antique silver "oasis" bail, 9mm pearl, roundelle, 9mm pearl, 7mm pearl. On the bottom strand string, in this order: 7mm Swarovski pearl in white, Swarovski 6mm silver and crystal roundelle, 9mm Swarovski pearl in white, roundelle, 9mm pearl, roundelle, 9mm pearl, the TierraCast antique silver "joy" bail, 9mm pearl and 7mm pearl.

Step Six: On both strands, string a bead bar created in step one, 7mm pearl, bead bar created in step two, 7mm pearl, bead bar created in step three, 7mm pearl, bead bar created in step three, 7mm pearl, bead bar created in step two, 7mm pearl, bead bar created in step one, 7mm pearl.

Step Seven: On the top strand, string in this order: 9mm pearl, roundelle, 9mm pearl, joy bail, 9mm pearl, roundelle, 9mm pearl, roundelle, 7mm pearl. On the bottom strand, string in this order: 9mm pearl, oasis bail, 9mm pearl, roundelle, 9mm pearl, roundelle, 9mm pearl, roundelle and 7mm pearl. Finish the wire by crimping the end to a 4.6mm jump ring using a crimp tube. Cover the crimp tube with a crimp cover. Using the jump rings on the ends of the wire, attach the wire to the bar end of the toggle.

Eight: Use a 5.0mm sterling silver open jump ring to attach the sterling silver fancy heart charm to one of the oasis bails. Attach the sterling silver crazy for you candy heart charm to one of the joy bails using a 5.0mm jump ring. Use a 5.0mm jump ring to attach the sterling silver soul mate charm to the other joy bail. Attach the Swarovski 14.4x14mm faceted heart pendant in crystal to the other oasis bail using the 9.0mm sterling silver open jump ring.
