Sonja's Gift Bracelet Instructions Designed by Artbeads
Carrie presented her bridesmaids with a choice of two sets of bridesmaid's jewelry each! Each one was unique and made to complement their personality. After much deliberation, they each chose the styles they liked best, thinking those were the items they got to keep. They were right, but Carrie also surprised them with a thank you gift of the second set of jewelry on her wedding day! Be sure to check out Sonja's matching necklace and earrings.
Step one: Attach the larger of the open sterling silver jump rings to the Swarovski crystal briolettes, close the jump rings and set aside.
Step two: Cut approximately 8 inches of ZambaPro™ jewelry wire and crimp one end to the loop end of your toggle clasp. For help with crimping please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. String three 2mm Czech fire polished aqua AB beads followed by an antique copper-plated pewter small Turkish heishi spacer, a Swarovski 4mm bronze pearl, Swarovski 6mm faceted caribbean blue opal bicone, bronze pearl, and another heishi spacer. Add a small bronze head-drilled Keishi pearl and four 2mm fire-polished beads. String three of the crystal briolette dangles over the fire-polished beads and add another keishi pearl. From there repeat the pattern starting with the first copper spacer two more times and finish with the spacer, Swarovski pearl, bicone, pearl, spacer and three fire-polished beads pattern.
Step three: Crimp the remaining wire to the other end of the clasp and trim any excess.
