Caitlin Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Playful sparkle fills this wonderful bracelet. It showcases Swarovski clover beads that work well in St. Patrick's Day looks, but are also subtle enough to be worn any time of the year. Clovers are a symbol of luck, so make sure you bring good fortune to your style with this simple yet stunning design.

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately nine inches long. Crimp one end of the wire to a sterling silver 1x8mm heavy closed jump ring using a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube. See our Crimp Tool Handy Tip for more information on crimping.

Step two:
String beads onto your wire in the following pattern:
  • One TierraCast antique silver 5mm coiled heishi spacer
  • One Swarovski 8mm clover bead in Dark Moss Green
  • A TierraCast coiled spacer
  • One Swarovski 8mm clover bead in Crystal AB
Repeat this pattern seven times. Finish the beaded pattern with one spacer, a Dark Moss Green clover bead and another spacer.

Step three:
Crimp the end of the bracelet to a sterling silver 6.10mm open jump ring using a crimp tube. Attach the sterling silver interlocked charm and the 15x8mm silver-plated trigger clasp to the jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, see our Jump Ring Handy Tip Video.
