Material List

  • Beadalon® 19 Strand .024” Stringing Wire
  • #2 Crimp Bead
  • #3 Crimp Bead
  • Wire Cutters
  • Flat Nose Pliers
 

Project Instructions

Cut three pieces of beading wire at approximately 9" in length. 

String on one #2 crimp bead onto all three wires at approximately ½" and crimp the bead flat, making sure the wires are side by side. 

String on another #2 crimp bead onto all three wires, about ¾" away from the first crimp (this distance can be adjusted to your taste utilizing either more or less crimp beads). 

Make sure the wires are side by side then pull the left and center wire until the right wire forms an arc. This arc can be as large or small as you prefer. 

Once you have made the arc the size desired, crimp the bead flat. 

Continue stringing and pulling the center wire with alternating outer wires until the bracelet is the proper size for our wrist. 

To finish the bracelet, slide the three wires from the beginning into the #3 crimp bead and in the opposite direction slide the end three wires into the same crimp bead. Then crush the crimp bead and cut the excess wires from either side of the crushed #3 crimp bead.

Tips

It is necessary to adjust the wire carefully as you go to make sure each of the "puffs" are about the same size.
