Winter Lights Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

The ice blue crystals and sparkling silver of this bracelet make it perfect for the Hanukkah season, and the small Menorah charm acts as a reminder of past and future celebration. This delightful project can be completed in less than two hours.

Step one: Use a 3-inch piece of sterling silver 22 gauge half hard round wire to form a wrapped loop around the 6mm stardust sterling silver roundel. This will be the center of the bracelet. For help making a wrapped loop link, see the Handy Tips in the Learning Center. On the remaining wire, thread one round 11/0 crystal AB Toho bead, one 5mm stardust sterling silver roundel, one 8mm faceted round light sapphire AB, one 5mm roundel and one Toho. Finish with a wrapped loop.

Step two: Use a 3-inch piece of wire and connect it to the loop on the first wrapped link with a wrapped loop. Thread on one Toho, one 5mm roundel, one 6mm cube air blue opal, one 5mm roundel and one Toho. Finish with a wrapped loop.

Step three: In the same manner add a third wrapped loop link to this one, using the bead pattern of the wrapped loop link in Step one.

Step four: Connect a fourth wrapped loop link to the third using one Toho, one 5mm roundel and one Toho. Use a wrapped loop to attach it to one piece of the sterling silver 12mm round toggle clasp.

Step five: Repeat the steps to form the other side of the bracelet. Use a wrapped loop to attach it to the other piece of the toggle clasp.

Step six: Add the Menorah charm and dangling bead. Use a wrapped loop link to attach the sterling silver Menorah charm to the center roundelle on the bracelet. On one end of a 2-inch piece of wire bend the tip of the wire around and squeeze it with pliers to form a head. You may need to curl the wire one more time like a coil before squeezing to make sure that the bead will not fall off. Onto the wire thread a Toho, one 4mm stardust (laser cut) sterling silver roundel and one 6mm faceted round light sapphire AB. Use a wrapped loop to attach this to the top loop of the Menorah link.
