Project Instructions

Step 1  Measure 2 strands of beading wire approximately 12 inches each in length.

Step 2 Gather the Silver iris glass faceted 8mm beads, the brass plated acrylic spike beads, and the beading wire from Step 1.

Step 3 On each strand of beading wire thread 8 silver iris glass faceted 8mm beads, then 2 brass plated acrylic spike beads.

Step 4 On each strand of beading wire, now thread 3 Silver iris glass faceted 8mm beads, then 2 brass plated acrylic spike beads.

Step 5 Repeat Step 4 one more time.

Step 6 On each strand of beading wire thread 8 Silver iris glass faceted 8mm beads.

Step 7 Now gather the silver plated 4mm round beads and the bead strands from above. Thread both strands of beading wire through 1 silver plated 4mm round bead and repeat on the other end of the bead strand.

Step 8. Using the Bead Landing™ crimp tubes with loop and the end strand from Steps 7, 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 9 Repeat this crimp tube closure step on the remaining end and trim any access wire.

Step 10 Repeat Steps 1-9 so that you have another identical strand.

Step 11 Now gather the silver chain and measure 8 chain links. Open each end of the chain link and connect to the crimp tubes of both bead strands from the steps above.

Helpful Hint: The bead strands will lay side-by-side and this 8-chain link will connect the 2 strands.

Step 12 Repeat Step 11 for the other end of the bead strands.

Step 13 Now measure 8-10 chain links and connect to the middle chain link connecting the bead strands from Step 11. Helpful Hint: This will make your bracelet adjustable so add as much or less chain as you like here.

Step 14 Lastly, add one jump ring to the lobster clasp closure and attach to the middle chain link connecting the bead strands from Step 12.
