You'll be reminded of hot air balloons and rainbows when you wear this colorful bracelet. The playful beads will make fun accents to youthful styles, subdued looks and everything else! It's simple to put together and looks absolutely fabulous. This would make a wonderful project for friends to do together! These steps will show you how.

Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately ten inches. Attach one end to half of the sterling silver sun design magnetic clasp using a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube. For help with using crimps, please see our Handy Tip.

  • One Swarovski 8mm faceted bicone in Tanzanite
  • One heishi spacer
  • One Grace Lampwork rainbow balloon lentil bead
Repeat the pattern six times and then add a heishi spacer, a Tanzanite bicone and another heishi spacer to the strand.

Step three:
Attach the other half of the clasp to the end of the bracelet using a crimp tube.
