Sunflower Sunrise Bracelet Instructions Designed by Cheri Carlson
Capture the essence of springtime and carry it with you throughout the year with this gorgeous Sunflower Sunrise bracelet.
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 approximately 11 inch pieces of ZambaPro™ 49 .014 jewelry wire. Thread the two wires through the stoneware green with white flowers 2-hole bead, and center them. Use a bead stopper to hold the wires in place on one side of the flower bead.
Step two: String approximately 3 and 1/2 inches on each strand using a mix of the round 11/0 green lined topaz Toho and round 8/0 frosted silver-lined medium Tohos, the 5x3.5mm orange/opal and 5x4mm olivine/white core roundelles and about half of the stoneware beads. Make sure to somewhat evenly space out the larger stoneware beads.
Step three: Attach the strands to the loop end of the sterling silver two strand toggle clasp using the sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tubes. Trim any excess wire. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips Section of the Learning Center.
Step four: Remove the bead stopper, and repeat the pattern to complete the other side of the bracelet. Finish at the bar end of the sterling silver toggle clasp. Crimp the remaining wire to the bar using the silver crimp tubes. Trim any excess wire.
