- *Note: Extra crystal bicones or pearls can be used to extend the length of the strands if a larger bracelet size is needed. Just place identical beads on each strand to keep the patterns matching.
Cut two 10 inch pieces of beading wire (7 strand is fine for this project).
Use a crimp bead to attach each wire to one half of the toggle clasp.
To use a crimp, thread a crimp bead and the clasp onto one end of beading wire. Bring the wire back down through the crimp bead so there is about a 1-inch tail. Push the crimp tight to the clasp end. Using your needle nose pliers, press the crimp flat. *A special crimping tool can be used instead of crimping flat. This technique will fold the crimp and create a neater finish.* Test that the wire is secure before threading on beads. The beads you thread on will cover the tail so there is no need to trim.
Thread onto each wire separately a crystal bicone.
Then thread onto each wire bead set A: 4mm pearl, 2-6mm pearls, 4mm crystal bicone and 2-6mm pearls.
Thread a crystal and silver component through both wires. You’ll find loops on the back to one strand will go through the top while the second strand can go through the bottom 2 loops. Slide this into place.
Continue by threading the strands: set A, a crystal and silver component, set A and a final 4mm crystal bicone.
Use a crimp to secure each strand to the second half of the toggle clasp. Pull the tail of wire back down through a few beads to hide it and then trim any excess wire after the crimps are crushed.
