Spring Bling Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This bracelet sparkles with fun! Three strands of Swarovski crystals are separated by sterling silver flower spacer beads. All finished with an easy to clasp egg trigger clasp!

Step one: Begin by cutting three strands of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately eight inches. Attach one strand to each of the three bottom rings on an antique rhodium-plated pewter 3 to 1 link using 2x2mm crimp tubes. For detailed instructions on how to use a crimp tube please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Cover each of the crimp tubes with sterling silver crimp covers.

Step two: When working on a multi-strand piece it is best to work on a flat, non-slip surface like a bead mat. On the outside two wires string two 5mm Swarovski faceted erinite bicones. On the center wire, string three 4mm fire opal bicones. Follow these with a sterling silver 3-hole, stamped flower spacer bead. The pattern thereafter follows the same color patterns, but you will add three erinite and four fire opal beads between each spacer.

Step three: When you have 5 spacer beads, finish the bracelet with two bicones on each strand. Crimp the ends to the other 3 to 1 spacer.

Step four: Attach the egg trigger clasp to one end of the bracelet using a sterling silver oval jump ring. On the other end link more jump rings to make the bracelet the appropriate length for the wearer.
Approximate size: 7 ½ inches
