Project Instructions

Cut one 9" piece of turquoise tiger tail. Slide a crimp bead onto the end of the tiger tail. Next, take the end of the wire and loop it back through the crimp bead, leaving a small amount of extra wire as a tale. Using the flat section of the rosary pliers, flatten the crimp bead to secure. String on an assortment of beads, including seed beads, pearls, and bicone beads. Place a large clear bead in the center. To finish the strand, slide a crimp bead onto the end of the tiger tail. Take the end of the wire and loop it back through the crimp bead, inserting the tail back through the beads on the strand. Using the flat section of the rosary pliers, flatten the crimp bead to secure. Attach a lobster closure to one end and a jump ring to the other end.

Cut one 6" piece of turquoise tiger tail. Slide a crimp bead onto the end of the tiger tail. Next, take the end of the wire and loop it back through the crimp bead, leaving a small amount of extra wire as a tale. Using the flat section of the pliers, flatten the crimp bead to secure. Attach to jump ring on the end of the bracelet. String on about seven to ten seed beads, then twist the tiger tail around the first strand of beads three to four times. Continue doing this until you reach the large center bead, creating a ‘wave’ look. Twist the wire around the strand on the side of the large center bead and tie a knot to secure. Cut off excess wire.

Repeat on other side of bracelet.
