Instructions

  1. User your flush cutters to cut a length of beading wire which is approximately ten inches in length. Secure one end of the wire with a Bead Stopper (XTL-3000).
  2. Onto your wire, thread the following:
  3. a black 4mm heishe spacer
  4. a 10mm crystal Swarovski cube
  5. a black 5mm daisy spacer
  6. a black 4mm heishe spacer
  7. a three-hole black daisy spacer (through the center hole)
  8. a black 4mm heishe spacer
  9. a black 5mm daisy spacer
  10. Repeat this stringing sequence (sans the initial black 4mm heishe spacer) seven more times. Finish the strand by stringing one more 10mm crystal Swarovski cube and a black 4mm heishe spacer.
  11. Thread a crimp tube onto the strand, but do not crimp it yet. Thread the strand through the middle loop of one of the strand reducers, back through the crimp tube, and pull snug- leaving enough room for the loop to move freely. Crimp the tube and trim excess wire from this end of the bracelet.
  12. Remove the Bead Stopper from the opposite end of the strand and repeat the previous step.
  13. Opening each link the same way you would open a jump ring, remove and separate thirty-four links from the textured antiqued silver chain.
  14. Thread one link through each one of the end holes of the three hole spacers, on both sides of the bracelet. Close each link once more.
  15. Join each of these closed links with an additional chain link. Add an additional link to each end of both sides of the bracelet. Close all of these links as well.
  16. Open ten black oval jump rings. Add a jump ring to each of the four chain ends, and close these jump rings once more.
  17. Use four additional jump rings to join the jump rings you just added on each chain end to the four outer loops of the three hole strand reducers. Close these jump rings again.
  18. Use the remaining two jump rings to connect each half of the toggle claps to the single-loop sides of the strand reducers. Close the remaining two jump rings.
  19. Place a gunmetal crimp bead cover over each of the crimp beads and gently squeeze closed using your chain nose pliers.
