Simple Beauty Bracelet & Earrings Set Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Creating these fun and simple jewelry designs is the perfect excuse to spend some quality time with your children. They'll love finding the perfect combination of beads to string, and will be thrilled to wear their finished product. Make sure to help them with more complicated techniques such as crimping and creating simple loops.

If you want to create a different colored bracelet, simply switch out the purple crystal for any of the colors we've listed in the alternate components list below. The same philosophy can be applied to the earrings. Simply use the bead combination and earpost you think will look best together.


Bracelet:
Step One: Cut a nine-inch piece of ZambaPro 49 .019 jewelry wire. Crimp one end of the wire to a sterling silver medium closed jump ring using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. Trim any excess wire. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Two: String a 3mm seamless sterling silver round bead, a 3.5mm daisy spacer, a 4mm Swarovski XILION bicone in purple velvet and a spacer on the wire. Repeat 18 times. String a silver round on the wire.

Step Three: Finish the bracelet by crimping the wire to the 6mm sterling spring ring using a crimp tube. Trim any excess wire.


Earrings:
Step One: On a 1 1/2-inch head pin, string a 3.5mm daisy spacer, a 3mm seamless sterling silver bead round, a spacer a 4mm Swarovski XILION bicone in purple velvet, a spacer, a silver round and a bicone. Finish with a simple loop and attach to the French hook earwire with ball and coil. For help with simple loops visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Two: Repeat step one to create the second earring.
