Silver Sticks Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The depth and shine of Swarovski jet crystals combine with the texture of Hill Tribe silver spacers to create this dramatic two-strand bracelet. This stunning bracelet is easy to make and will attract the attention of everyone around you!

Tips: I like using Bead Stoppers to keep the beads in place while working on multiple strands. For a more polished finish cover the crimps with a bead or crimp cover.

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: Cut two lengths of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately nine inches. Attach the strands to the hook end of the sterling silver two-strand clasp set using sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tubes. For detailed instructions on how to use crimp tubes, please Click Here.

Step two: String both sides evenly, making sure to mind the ends of your wire so that you don't lose any beads off of one side while working on the other. Begin with a 6mm Swarovski jet faceted bicone on each strand, followed by two 8mm Swarovski jet bicones on each strand. You will then string one of the smallest graduated 2-hold textured square stick spacers facing away from the clasp, followed by a 4mm Swarovski jet faceted round on each strand. You will continue this pattern with the increasing lengths of the spacers until you string the largest spacer. Place one 4mm round on each strand and reverse the pattern.

Step three: After you have strung the reversed pattern of silver spacers and faceted rounds, string two 8mm bicones and 6mm bicone on each strand. Crimp the remaining wire to the loops on the round end of the clasp set, and trim the excess.
