Snapdragon Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The true beauty of a snapdragon is only revealed when it is opened for the world to see. The same could be said about love, making this bracelet perfect for your big day. Pair it with the Snapdragon necklace for a fun combination.

Step One: String two beads from the Toho bead mix raspberry 8 gram bag, a wasabi pearl nugget, a long cylinder Toho bead and a small Toho bead onto a 2-inch sterling silver eye pin. Finish the wire with a wrapped loop. For help with wrapped loops visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Two: String four Toho beads onto a 2 1/2-inch sterling silver head pin. Attach the head pin to the eye pin using a simple loop. For help with simple loops visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Set this piece aside.

Step Three: Attach a 10-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to the hook end of the antique silver-plated pewter round toggle clasp set using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. String four Toho beads, the component you set aside earlier, five Toho beads, a 4mm antique silver-plated pewter teke spacer, a wasabi pearl and a spacer. Repeat the following pattern six times: four Toho beads, one spacer, one wasabi pearl and one spacer. Finish by stringing four Toho beads onto the wire, and attach the wire to the other end of the clasp using the second crimp tube.
