Step 1 Measure 2 strands of beading wire approximately 12 inches each in length.
Step 2 Gather the Bead Gallery® large oval acrylic sliders including the clear beads and the beading wire from Step 1.
Step 3 On each strand of beading wire thread 1 Bead Gallery® large oval acrylic slider and 1 clear bead.
Step 4 Repeat Step 3 five more times so that you have a total of 6 Bead Gallery® large oval acrylic sliders.
Step 5 Using the Bead Landing™ crimp tubes with loop and the end strand from Steps 4, insert the end of both beading threads into the crimp tube until it meets the hole of the loop. Using your chain nose pliers, fold over both open edges of the crimp tube and press firmly. Make sure the wire is held tightly with the crimp tube.
Step 6 Repeat this crimp tube closure step on the remaining end and trim any access wire. Add a jump ring through the loop of both crimp tubes with loop.
Step 7 Now gather the Bead Landing™ black suede leather cording, the bead strand from Steps 5-6, and the E6000 glue. Add a drop of glue to the back of the crimp tube. Place the end of the leather cording and hold to secure glue.
Step 8 Then taking the cording behind the slider, begin to wrap the leather cording over the clear beads and back around the slider. You will repeat this until you cover all clear beads and get to the end of the sliders. Trim access leather cording leaving just a very small amount on the end. Add a drop of glue to the back of the crimp tube. Place the end of the leather cording and hold to secure glue.
Step 9 Now gather the Bead Landing™ silver chain. Measure around your wrist to your desired length.
Step 10 Next gather the chain from Step 9, the slider strand from Step 8, and the Bead Landing™ black suede leather cording. Lay the slider strand from Step 8 next to the chain strand leaving an equal amount of chain on each side. Attach both jump rings from the slider strand to the chain strand.
Step 11 Using the leather cording tie a knot of leather cording to the chain strand right above where the slider strand meets the chain. Then taking the cording behind the slider, begin to wrap the leather cording through the chain links and over the slider strand and back around the slider. You will repeat this until you wrap each slider again and get to the end of the sliders. Tie a knot of leather cording to the chain strand right above the end of the slider strand and trim access.
Step 12 Then add a few jump rings to the end of the chain strand.
Step 13 On the remaining end of the chain strand, add a jump ring and the Bead Landing™ silver lobster claw clasp closure.
