Tunisian Bazaar Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Walking through a bazaar is a delight to the senses, with bold colors, smells and sounds coming from every corner. This bracelet attempts to capture that spirit with brightly colored glass, bold shapes and unique patterns. For another globally-inspired piece, see the Southern Passage necklace.

Step One: Cut an approximately 9 1/2-inch piece of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. Crimp one end of the wire to an 8.0mm sterling silver open jump ring using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Two: On the wire, string a 5mm square glazed porcelain bead in midnight, an 8mm antique silver legend large hole spacer, a midnight bead, a silver spacer and another midnight bead. Add a silver spacer, a midnight bead, a Czech glass yellow tiger's eye large spade and a midnight bead. Repeat four times. Add a silver spacer and a midnight bead. Repeat twice.

Step Three: Finish the wire by crimping to a jump ring with a crimp tube. Attach the sterling silver stepping stones S clasp to the jump rings to complete the bracelet.
