Treasures of the Sea Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Combine the youthfulness of a charm bracelet with these sunny summer colors to make the perfect bracelet for your summer vacation.

Step one: Cut a length of jewelry wire to approximately 9 inches. Attach one end to the hook end of the sterling silver fish hook and eye clasp using a 2x2mm crimp tube. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover the crimp tube with a crimp cover.

Step two: Prepare the charms by attaching a sterling silver jump ring to each one.

Step three: String a 4mm Swarovski faceted bicone in Sun AB, followed by a 3mm sterling silver seamless round bead, a 6mm Swarovski faceted bicone Caribbean blue opal, another 3mm round bead, an aqua glass flat hexagon bead, and then your first charm. Follow that with another silver round, 6mm Caribbean blue opal, round, 4mm sun AB, round, 6mm Caribbean blue opal, round and the next charm. Add a hexagon bead and another charm, then repeat the round/bicone pattern, a charm, hexagon, charm and the bicone pattern again. Add your final charm, a hexagon bead, silver round, 6mm Caribbean blue opal, round and the final 4mm sun AB bicone.

Step four: Crimp the remainder of the wire to the eye end of the clasp and cover with a crimp tube. Trim the excess wire.
