Steel Sky Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Pyramid hex beads bring eye-catching dimension to this sleek bracelet design. Cheri paired these noticeable beads with sparkling Swarovski crystal beads and glowing Swarovski pearls for a look that will shine anywhere. You'll love playing with pyramid hex beads, so learn how to make this bracelet today!

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 10 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto the end, followed by one of the jump rings on half of the sterling silver 14x10mm 2 strand filigree clasp with ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Add a sterling silver 3mm crimp cover to the tube. For help with this, please see our Handy Tip. Repeat this step so that there are two strands of wire attached to your clasp.

Step two:
Add one Swarovski 4mm faceted round in Crystal Silver Shade to each strand, followed by a Swarovski 6mm round pearl in Grey to each strand and a Crystal Silver Shade bead to each strand. Then, slide a Czech glass 12mm pastel light silver gray 2-hole pyramid hex bead onto both strands. Repeat this step five times, making sure the pyramid hex beads are all facing up. Then, add a Crystal Silver Shade bead to each strand, a Grey pearl to each strand and another Crystal Silver Shade bead to each strand.

Step three:
Slide a crimp tube onto each strand, then loop each strand around each jump ring on the other half of the clasp and back through the respective crimp tube. Crimp the strands in place. Add a crimp cover to each crimp tube.
