Prospector's Bounty Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This bracelet is bold and brilliant. You can feel the gold rush fever as the gorgeous glass nuggets combine with the Hill Tribe silver sticks for a fun and funky bracelet.

Step one: Cut a length of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately nine inches and attach one end to an open jump ring using a 2x2mm crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Attach the jump ring to the loop end of the sterling silver toggle clasp.

Step two: String a 9mm dichroic glass rhomboid bead followed by three Hill Tribe silver sticks, a 13mm dichroic glass bead, three more sticks repeat the pattern five more times and finish with a 9mm rhomboid nugget.

Step three: Attach the remaining end of the wire to an open jump ring using a crimp tube, and attach that crimp tube to the bar end of your toggle.
