Project Instructions

Step 1 Gather one large round druzy slider and two eye pins. Slide one eye pin through two of openings on the back of the bead. Repeat using the other eye pin and the remaining two openings.

Step 2 Using your chain nose pliers, bend the wire to form a right angle as close to the bead as possible. Using your wire cutters, remove any excess wire, leaving approximately ¼" of wire. Grab the very end of the wire at a point approximately 1/8" down from the tip of your round nose pliers. Roll the wire around the tip of the round nose pliers to form a complete circle centered over the wire stem. Tip: To make the piece look more finished, make your loop so it closes on the same side as your original loop when using eye pins.

Step 3 Gather two large oval druzy sliders and four eye pins. Slide one eye pin through two of openings on the back of the bead. Repeat using another eye pin and the remaining two openings. Repeat this step using the second large oval bead and remaining eye pins.

Step 4 Repeat Step 3.

Step 5 Gather two eye pins, four gold oval beads, and two gold beaded spacers. Holding the eye pin, add one gold oval bead, one gold beaded spacer, and one gold oval bead. Using your chain nose pliers, bend the wire to form a right angle as close to the bead as possible. Using your wire cutters, remove any excess wire, leaving approximately ¼" of wire. Grab the very end of the wire at a point approximately 1/8" down from the tip of your round nose pliers. Roll the wire around the tip of the round nose pliers to form a complete circle centered over the wire stem.

Step 6 Repeat Step 5.

Step 7 Gather two eye pins, four soft gold oval beads, and two gold beaded spacers. Holding the eye pin, add one gold oval bead, one gold beaded spacer, and one gold oval bead. Using your chain nose pliers, bend the wire to form a right angle as close to the bead as possible. Using your wire cutters, remove any excess wire, leaving approximately ¼" of wire. Grab the very end of the wire at a point approximately 1/8" down from the tip of your round nose pliers. Roll the wire around the tip of the round nose pliers to form a complete circle centered over the wire stem.

Step 8 Repeat Step 7.

Step 9 Gather the strand from Step 5. Open a loop using your chain nose pliers by gently lifting the loop up from the closed side, making a small space to insert your next loop. Do not pull the loop straight out or the round shape will be distorted. Insert the loop from Step 1. Close the loop back to its closed position using your chain nose pliers. To make sure the tip of the wire forms a secure loop, use your chain nose pliers and gently squeeze the loop to ensure it is securely closed. This ensures the loops won't separate while you're wearing your design.

Step 10 Repeat Step 9 using the strand from Step 6. Add this strand to the same side loop as you did in Step 9 above.

Step 11 Gather the strand from Step 7. Open a loop using your chain nose pliers by gently lifting the loop up from the closed side, making a small space to insert your next loop. Do not pull the loop straight out or the round shape will be distorted. Insert one of the remaining loops from Step 1. Close the loop back to its closed position using your chain nose pliers. To make sure the tip of the wire forms a secure loop, use your chain nose pliers and gently squeeze the loop to ensure it is securely closed. This ensures the loops won't separate while you're wearing your design.

Step 12 Repeat Step 11 using the strand from Step 8. Add this strand to the last remaining loop as you did in Step 11 above.

Step 13 Using the remaining end of Step 5 that is not connected, open a loop using your chain nose pliers by gently lifting the loop up from the closed side making a small space to insert your next loop. Do not pull the loop straight out or the round shape will be distorted. Insert the loop from Step 3. Close the loop back to its closed position using your chain nose pliers. To make sure the tip of the wire forms a secure loop, use your chain nose pliers and gently squeeze the loop to ensure it is securely closed. This ensures the loops won't separate while you're wearing your design.

Step 14 Using the remaining end of Step 6 that is not connected, open a loop using your chain nose pliers by gently lifting the loop up from the closed side, making a small space to insert your next loop. Do not pull the loop straight out or the round shape will be distorted. Insert the loop from Step 3. Close the loop back to its closed position using your chain nose pliers. To make sure the tip of the wire forms a secure loop, use your chain nose pliers and gently squeeze the loop to ensure it is securely closed. This ensures the loops won't separate while you're wearing your design.

Step 15 Using the remaining end of Step 7 that is not connected, open a loop using your chain nose pliers by gently lifting the loop up from the closed side making a small space to insert your next loop. Do not pull the loop straight out or the round shape will be distorted. Insert the loop from Step 4. Close the loop back to its closed position using your chain nose pliers. To make sure the tip of the wire forms a secure loop, use your chain nose pliers and gently squeeze the loop to ensure it is securely closed. This ensures the loop won't separate while you're wearing your design.

Step 16 Using the remaining end of Step 8 that is not connected, open a loop using your chain nose pliers by gently lifting the loop up from the closed side making a small space to insert your next loop. Do not pull the loop straight out or the round shape will be distorted. Insert the loop from Step 4. Close the loop back to its closed position using your chain nose pliers. To make sure the tip of the wire forms a secure loop, use your chain nose pliers and gently squeeze the loop to ensure it is securely closed.

Step 17 Using the 20" satin gold .018" 49-strand Beadalon® flexible beading wire, string one small clear gold, one gold drop, one soft gold square, one brown drop, and one small clear gold. String one crimp cover and one crimp bead. Pass the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp cover creating a small loop above crimp bead. Crimp tube and trim excess wires. Close crimp cover over crimp bead. Cut other end of beading wire from the spool and repeat the crimp cover and crimp bead closure step.

Step 18 Repeat Step 17 three times.

Step 19 Attach the strand from Step 17 to the open loop from Step 3 using the round nose pliers. Repeat using the remaining three strands from Step 18 and the remaining open loops from Step 3.

Step 20 Using the round nose pliers, loop the open crimp cover from Step 17, and one crimp cover from Step 18, to a jump ring. Repeat using the open crimp covers from the remaining two strands from Step 18.

Step 21 Using both pliers and a jump ring, connect the hook closure to one of the jump rings. This can be done on either side that has a jump ring. Hook the closure to the jump ring on the other end of your bracelet. The design is complete.
