Tanzanite Temptation Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Whether you are making a gift or looking for a little extra sparkle for that special occasion, nothing shimmers like Swarovski. In this design we mixed Swarovski pearls and crystal with two-strand rhodium-plated pewter spacers. 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 lengths of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately nine inches. Attach the strands to the loop end of the antique silver heirloom 2-loop clasp set using sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tubes. For detailed instructions on how to use crimp tubes, please Click Here.

Step two: String both sides evenly, making sure to mind the ends of your wire so that you don't lose any beads off of one side while working on the other. Begin with a 6mm Mauve Swarovski pearl, follow with an antique silver small Turkish heishi spacer, 8mm Tanzanite Swarovski crystal, another spacer, 5mm Mauve pearl, spacer, 8mm Tanzanite crystal, spacer, and a 6mm pearl. This will complete the first section of the bracelet. When both sides are complete, add the rhodium hourglass two-hole link and begin the pattern again.

Step three: Repeat the pattern four times, ending at the bar end of the toggle clasp. Crimp the remaining wire to the bar and trim the excess. This simple and stunning bracelet is sure to impress.

NOTE: The image in this design begins with 6mm Swarovski pearls. This makes the toggle a bit difficult to open and close, but extremely secure. For an easier time clasping the bracelet, you may want to begin with 5mm pearls. Keep in mind, if you choose to do this that you will need 12 5mm pearls and 12 6mm.
