Winter Berry Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Stringing cranberries and popcorn is such a fun holiday tradition that we decided to mimic it by creating this sparkling winter berry bracelet.

Before beginning, you need to decide which method of stringing multi-strand pieces is easiest for you. On something like this bracelet, you can either do both strands simultaneously, or string one, and when that is complete, string the second. These instructions are for the two strands at once method, but either way is fine.

Step One: Cut two approximately 10-inch pieces of ZambaPro™ 49 0.19 jewelry wire. Crimp one end of both the wire strands to one half of the 14x10mm filigree 2-string clasp with ring, using the 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tubes. For help with crimp tubes visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step Two: On each wire, string a 4mm sterling round multi V-cut bead and a cranberry rice pearl. Thread both wires through the antique silver tudor 2 hole link.

Step Three: On each wire, string a cranberry pearl, an 8mm sterling round multi V-cut bead and a cranberry pearl. String both wires through the link. Repeat this pattern three times.

Step Four: On each wire, string a 4mm sterling round multi V-cut bead and a cranberry rice pearl.

Step Five: Crimp the end of the both wires to the other half of the filigree clasp using the crimp tubes. Enjoy!
