Project Instructions

Step 1
Cut two 6" pieces of deep green leather cord. Line up one set of ends and use chain nose pliers to attach a crimp end to both pieces so there is a slight gap between the pieces of cord. Repeat on the opposite ends.

Step 2
Cut twelve 3" pieces of .018 beading wire. Slide a lentil to the center of a 3" piece of wire. Position the bead on the outside of the cord, pull the ends across the inside, and pass both ends through a crimp tube going in opposite directions. Pull the tension snug, but not tight, and use chain nose pliers to flatten the crimp tube on the inside of the cords.

Step 3
Next, attach a studded silver slider, using one piece of flexible wire and one crimp tube for each of the two holes in the slider.

Step 4
Continue adding lentils and sliders in an alternating pattern until there are four of each on the cords.

Step 5
On one end, attach two jump rings to the crimp end, attaching the loop half of a toggle clasp to the second jump ring. On the opposite end, attach five jump rings, adding the bar half of the toggle with the fifth jump ring.

Finished Size: 7¼" 

Tips

Quick and easy crimping, cords and show-stopping beads can be turned into this contemporary cuff bracelet in less than 30 minutes. No one will ever guess that it didn’t take hours or cost a bundle! To resize the bracelet, simply add or subtract cord from the original measurement. The beads and sliders can be snug against each other or there can be some space in between the elements without affecting the finished bracelet
