Project Instructions

Step 1 Use one head pin to string one cornerless cube, one dark aqua swirl lentil, and one cornerless cube; form a simple loop. Repeat twice. Use one head pin to string one howlite round, one dark aqua swirl lentil, and one howlite round; form a simple loop. Repeat.

Step 2 Use one head pin to string one howlite round and one table-cut round; form a simple loop. Repeat twice. Use one head pin to string one table-cut round and one howlite round; form a simple loop. Repeat four times.

Step 3 Use one head pin to string one cornerless cube and one aqua lentil; form a simple loop. Repeat twice.

Step 4 Use one head pin to string one howlite round and one silver lentil; form a wrapped loop. Repeat twice.

Step 5 To create the chain, connect jump rings in the following order: one 8mm, one 15 mm, one 8mm, one 15mm, three 8mm, two 15mm, one 8mm, one 15mm, two 8mm, two 15mm, one 8mm, one 15mm, two 8mm, two 15mm, and one 8mm. Attach the lobster clasp to the final 8mm jump ring.

Step 6 Use pairs of 4mm jump rings to attach the dangles randomly to the bracelet with one or two dangles per chain link. Some dangles may be attached directly to the chain links without additional jump rings.
