Hugs and Kisses Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Show your love with this bracelet that declares "XOXOXO". Let your loved one carry your hugs and kisses around with them wherever they go!

Step one: Cut approximately 9 inches of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire. Attach one end of the wire to a sterling silver heart toggle clasp using 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tubes. For help using crimp tubes please Click Here.

Step two: Begin by stringing a 3mm Swarovski bicone light Siam crystal followed by a 3mm sterling corrugated saucer bead, repeat those two beads again then add a 4mm light Siam crystal and a 4mm sterling corrugated saucer. Follow that with alternating X and O sterling silver heart-shaped letter beads separated by 4mm sterling silver saucer beads. You will use seven of each letter.

Step three: Finish the pattern the way it started with the 4mm light Siam bicone, followed by a 3mm saucer, 3mm bicone, 3mm saucer and finish with a 3mm Swarovski light Siam bicone. Crimp the remaining wire to the other end of your toggle clasp.

Step four: For an added touch, we made a dangle that attached to the loop on the heart of the toggle clasp. To make the dangle, string a 3mm corrugated sterling saucer bead, a 3mm Swarovski light Siam crystal, another saucer and a 4mm Swarovski faceted round crystal AB on a 2-inch head pin. Attach it to the toggle using a wrapped loop. For detailed instructions on how to make a wrapped loop, please Click Here.
