For the earrings, please click here. Step one: Measure a length of jewelry wire approximately three inches larger than your wrist. You are going to want to make this bracelet snug to your wrist as the weight is unbalanced and this will help keep the Swarovski crystals on the top of the bracelet. Put one end of the jewelry wire into a Bead Stopper. Alternate the 11x6mm Swarovski modular crystal copper, light rose, tanzanite and fuchsia beads until you have used them all. Step two: Working on one end at a time, and moving the Bead Stopper back and forth as you work, begin adding an inch and a half of Toho beads to both ends of the bracelet. Continue adding even amounts to each end until you have your desired length. Remember your clasp will add approximately ½?ÃƒÂƒÃ‚Â¢?ÃƒÂƒÃ¢Â€Â¡ÃƒÂƒÃ…Â“?ÃƒÂƒÃ‚Â©?ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Âª of an inch to your design. Step three: When you have reached the desired length, crimp the wire to the clasp using 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tubes. Cover with a 3mm gold-filled crimp cover.
Approximate size: Our design is 6 inches inside diameter, but you should make yours to fit snuggly on your wrist.
