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.
