Tigani Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Add a touch of the exotic to your looks with this multi-strand bracelet. Featuring a collage of sparkling colors accented with shining silver, this bracelet embodies the spirit of mix-and-match style. Tigani comes from the Romanian word for Gypsy and is also the name of a peninsula in Greece. As the name suggests, this bracelet takes influence from far-off cultures to create a stunning example of jewelry that can be worn with almost anything!

Step one:
Cut a piece of the sterling silver 22 gauge half hard wire approximately 2 inches long. Cut 37 more pieces in the same length. These will be used with the Swarovski mini beads, 6mm bicones and the 5mm bicones to create wrapped loops. Cut a piece of the wire approximately 1 1/2 inches long. Cut 56 more pieces of the same length. These will be used with the 3mm round pearls, the 3mm faceted rounds and bicones, the 4mm bicones and the 4mm briolette beads to create wrapped loops.

Step two:
Thread a Swarovski 4mm briolette bead in Crystal Copper onto a shorter piece of wire and create a wrapped loop on both ends. See our Handy Tip for more help with creating a wrapped loop. You are going to attach a pattern of beads together by stringing them onto pieces of wire and creating wrapped loops. Attach a Swarovski 8x6mm mini oval bead in Smoked Topaz in this manner to the end of the Crystal Copper link and then keep adding beads to the strand following this pattern:
  • One Swarovski 3mm round pearl in Bordeaux
  • One Swarovski 4mm XILION bicone in Khaki
  • One Swarovski 6mm XILION bicone in Amethyst Blend
  • One Swarovski 6mm mini square bead in Indicolite
  • One Swarovski 3mm round pearl in Dark Grey
  • One Swarovski 5mm faceted bicone in Dark Red Coral
  • One Swarovski 3mm faceted round in Dark Indigo
  • One Swarovski 6mm mini round bead in Emerald
  • One Swarovski 3mm XILION bicone in Fuchsia
  • One Swarovski 3mm round pearl in Powder Green
  • One Crystal Copper briolette bead
  • One Smoked Topaz mini oval bead
  • One Bordeaux 3mm pearl
Attach this strand to the top loop of one half of the sterling silver 6-ring tube clasp using a sterling silver 3.55mm jump ring. For help with jump rings, please see our Handy Tip Video. Attach the other end of the strand to the other half of the clasp using another jump ring.

Step three:
Repeat step two using the same bead pattern, except add one 3mm Fuchsia bicone and one 3mm Powder Green pearl to the beginning of the pattern and leave off the last 3mm Bordeaux pearl in the pattern. Attach the ends of this strand to the second loops of each end of the tube clasp using jump rings.

Step four:
Create another strand in the same manner as the previous strands using this pattern:
  • One Emerald mini round bead
  • One 3mm Fuchsia bicone
  • One 3mm Powder Green pearl
  • One Crystal Copper briolette bead
  • One Smoked Topaz mini oval bead
  • One 3mm Bordeaux pearl
  • One 4mm Khaki bicone
  • One 6mm Amethyst Blend bicone
  • One Indicolite mini square bead
  • One 3mm Dark Grey pearl
  • One 5mm Dark Red Coral bicone
  • One 3mm Dark Indigo faceted round
  • One Emerald mini round bead
  • One 3mm Fuchsia bicone
  • One 3mm Powder Green pearl
  • One Crystal Copper briolette bead
Attach the ends of the strand to the third loop on each half of the tube clasp using jump rings.

Step five:
Repeat step four using the same bead pattern, except add one 3mm Dark Indigo faceted round to the beginning of the pattern and leave off the last Crystal Copper briolette bead in the pattern. Attach the ends of this strand to the fourth loop on each half of the tube clasp using jump rings.

Step six:
Create another strand for your bracelet using this pattern:
  • One 5mm Dark Red Coral bicone
  • One 3mm Dark Indigo faceted round
  • One Emerald mini round bead
  • One 3mm Fuchsia bicone
  • One 3mm Powder Green pearl
  • One Crystal Copper briolette bead
  • One Smoked Topaz mini oval bead
  • One 3mm Bordeaux Pearl
  • One 4mm Khaki bicone
  • One 6mm Amethyst Blend bicone
  • One Indicolite mini square bead
  • One 3mm Dark Grey pearl
  • One 5mm Dark Red Coral bicone
  • One 3mm Dark Indigo faceted round
  • One Emerald mini round bead
  • One 3mm Fuchsia bicone
Attach the ends of this strand to the fifth loop on each half of the tube clasp using jump rings.

Step seven:
Repeat the pattern from step six to create your last strand, except this time add one 3mm Dark Grey pearl to the beginning of the pattern and leave off the last 3mm Fuchsia bicone in the pattern. Attach the ends of the strand to the sixth open loop on each half of the tube clasp using jump rings.
