Tiramisu Bracelet Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Decadent and delicious colors make this bracelet a rich accent for any style. The perfect color palette is provided by Swarovski bicones and pearls from an Artbeads Designer Blend. Cynthia simply paired them with TOHO Demi round seed beads and a copper clasp for a quick yet stunning multi-strand look.

Step one: Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 10 inches long. Slide a 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube onto the end, followed by a 6mm antique copper 20 gauge open jump ring attached to half of the JBB antique copper-plated brass leaves with flowers toggle clasp set. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. If you need help opening and closing jump rings, please see this video tutorial.
Step two: Add the following bead pattern to the strand:
One TOHO Demi round 11/0 bead in bronze
One bicone from The Swarovski 4mm Crystal Mix Mocha Frappe Designer Blend
One Demi round
One Demi Round
One Demi round
One pearl from the Blend
Repeat eight times or until your strand is the desired length. Make sure to leave off the last pearl when completing your strand. Add a crimp tube to the end of the strand, followed by a jump ring attached to the other half of the clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.
Step three: Repeat steps one and two to make another strand, making sure to attach this strand to the same jump rings as the first.
Step four: Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 10 inches long. Add a crimp tube to the end and loop the wire around the jump ring attached to the clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Add a Demi round to the strand and then the following bead pattern:
Three Demi rounds
Repeat this pattern 23 times or until the strand is the desired length. Make sure to add a pearl and a Demi round to the end when completing your strand. Add a crimp tube to the end of the strand. Loop the end around the jump ring on the other end of the bracelet and back through the crimp tube. Crimp in place.
