Using pliers, attach a jump ring to the lobster claw closure. Close jump ring securely.
Cut a piece of wire and create a wire loop by using the tip of your chain nose pliers, grasp the wire directly above the beads. Bend the wire into a right angle. Position the round nose pliers vertically into the bend and bring the wire over the top of the pliers. Move the pliers round part into the curved wire. Wrap the wire down and around the bottom of the pliers to create the loop.
Place the loop onto one of the crystal connectors. Hold loop securely with the pliers and wrap the wire tail around the stem of the wire, keeping it snug to the stem. Cut excess wire and press end close to stem with your pliers.
Place a crystal onto the open end of the wire and repeat step 2 to wire wrap the wire to another crystal connector.
Repeat Steps 2 &3 until all of the crystals and crystal connectors have been attached to the bracelet and to the desired length of the overall bracelet.
Place a jump ring at the end of the bracelet using pliers for the lobster claw closure to attach to. Be sure to close jump ring securely.
