Instructions

  1. Before beginning this project, watch the video here on how to Herringbone wire wrap a bead. Following the technique you learned in the video, cut an approximately 22 inch length of 24 gauge wire and herringbone wrap an 8mm Swarovski faux pearl in mystic black. Make a total of 6 of these (for an 8 inch bracelet). If you have a particularly small wrist, you will probably only need 5 total (makes a 7 inch bracelet).
  2. Open a 4mm antique silver plated jump ring. Attach two of your herringbone wrapped beads together via their end loops. Do this to all your herringbone wrapped beads so that they are all linked together via jump rings forming the main body of your bracelet.
  3. Please watch this next video on how to make a clasp for this bracelet. Using 18 gauge silver colored wire, make both parts of the clasp shown in the video.
  4. Use a 4mm jump ring to attach one half of the clasp to each side of your bracelet.
  5. All done! It's amazing what you can do with wire!
