Crystal Cross Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This delicate and beautiful bracelet makes a wonderful Easter gift. It is perfect for church services or a dinner celebration with the family, and can easily be made in an afternoon.

Step 1: Begin with 22 gauge, round, half-hard sterling silver wire 7 of the 5 mm peridot (5000-PER5) and 6 rose (5000-RO5) Swarovski faceted round beads. Make a small wrapped loop in the wire (SSWR22HH1). Cut the other end of the wire to approximately an inch and a half long.

Step 2: Slide a Swarovski Crystal faceted round peridot colored bead onto the wire.

Step 3: Finish the link with another wrapped loop. Trim the excess wire.

Step 4: Connect subsequent links by putting the silver wire through the previous link before wrapping the loop. Alternate the colors in each link with peridot and rose colored Swarovski Crystal faceted round beads.

Step 5: When you come to the last loop, before closing the final end, attach a Sterling Silver Fine Closed Jump Ring (SS-CJR-FC). Finish with a wrapped loop.

Step 6: On the other end of the bracelet, attach an 8mm Round Trigger Clasp (SS-CL26) by using the open jump ring that comes with the clasp.

Step 7: Attach the Sterling Silver Small Cross Charm (CHARM396) with a Sterling Silver Open Jump Ring (SS-OJR30-C).

Step 8: Impress your friends!
