Temple Steps Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

CzechMates Cabochon Beads and Beam Beads create a look of ancient temple steps hidden in the jungle. This multi-strand style is easy to put together and will create an intricate look. The simple stringing technique looks like a woven project thanks to the different beads used.

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately nine inches long. String on a TierraCast 2x2mm brass oxide brass crimp tube, followed by a 5mm antique brass-plated open jump ring. Go back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Step two:
String a TOHO 8/0 Bead Round in higher-metallic dark plum iris onto the strand, then add the following pattern:
  • Hole A of a CzechMates 3-hole 10mm matte metallic bronze iris Beam Bead
  • Hole A of a CzechMates 2-hole 7mm metallic bronze iris Cabochon Bead
  • Hole A of a Beam Bead
  • Five seed beads
Repeat this pattern five times and then add Hole A of another Beam Bead. Add a crimp tube, followed by a 5mm jump ring. Go back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Step three:
Cut a second strand of jewelry wire the same length as the first. Add a crimp tube and then loop around the jump ring attached to your first strand and back through the crimp tube. Crimp in place.

Step four:
Add the following pattern to the second strand:
  • Hole A of a Beam Bead
  • Hole B of the Beam Bead on your first strand
  • Hole B of the Cabochon Bead on your first strand
  • Hole B of the next Beam Bead on your first strand
  • Hole A of a Beam Bead
  • Three seed beads
Repeat this pattern five times, then add Hole A of a Beam Bead and go through Hole B of the last Beam Bead on the first strand. Add a crimp tube and then loop around the jump ring attached to your first strand and back through the crimp tube. Crimp in place.

Step five:
Cut a third strand of jewelry wire the same length as the first two. Add a crimp tube, followed by a new 5mm jump ring. Go back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Add the following bead pattern to the wire:
  • Hole B of the first Beam Bead on your second strand
  • Hole C of the next Beam Bead on the previous strands
  • Three seed beads
  • Hole C of the next Beam Bead on the previous strands
  • Hole B of the next Beam Bead on the second strand
  • Hole A of a Cabochon Bead
Repeat this pattern five times, the go through Hole B of the next Beam Bead on the second strand and then Hole C on the last Beam Bead on the previous strands. Add a crimp tube and then loop around a new 5mm jump ring. Go back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Step six:
Cut a fourth strand of jewelry wire the same length as the first three. Add a crimp tube and then loop around the jump ring attached to the previous strand. Go back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Add the following bead pattern to the wire:
  • Hole C of the first Beam Bead on your previous strands
  • Five seed beads
  • Hole C on the next Beam Bead on your previous strands
  • Hole B on the next Cabochon Bead on your previous strand
Repeat this pattern five times, then go through Hole C on the next Beam Bead on the previous strands. Add a seed bead. Add a crimp tube and then loop around the jump ring attached to the previous strand. Go back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Step seven:
Attach a 5mm jump ring to each jump ring at one end of your bracelet. Attach these two jump rings to a single 5mm jump ring. Then, attach half of the TierraCast 1/2-inch brass oxide pewter Anna's toggle clasp set to this jump ring using another jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see this video tutorial. Repeat on the other side of the bracelet.

Step eight:
Open four 6mm antique brass-plated open jump rings and place them over the first crimp on one end of the bracelet. Close the jump rings to hide the crimp. Repeat for the second crimp. Repeat this step for the other end of the bracelet.
