cat's eye quartz toggle bracelet

This beaded toggle bracelet is as lovely as it is easy to make! String yours with cat’s eye quartz (like ours) or choose the beads you like the best. Either way, we’re here to walk you through it. Take a look at our instructions and DIY!
Step 1
First, measure and cut a 10" length of stringing wire.
Step 2

Next, add the bar piece from the toggle clasp to one end of the wire. Here’s how to do it:

  • Thread one crimp bead onto the wire, then slide it down to about 1" from the wire’s end.
  • Thread this last 1" of wire through the loop on your toggle bar, then fold the wire back and through the crimp bead.
  • Push the crimp bead close to the loop on the toggle bar, then crimp the bead with your crimper tool to secure it in place.
Step 3

Now it’s time to thread your beads onto the wire. Once you’re done, be sure to tuck the excess wire from the other side of the crimp bead inside the first few beads that are closest to the toggle bar. Slide on the following beads in this order:

  • Seven pink beads
  • One Gold rhinestone bead
  • Nine quartz chip beads
  • One Gold rhinestone bead
  • Seven more pink beads.

TIP: These beads will give you a finished bracelet that’s 7" long. To make your bracelet longer or shorter, just increase or decrease the number of beads you string onto your wire.

Step 4

Here's how to add the other half of the toggle clasp:

  • Slide one more crimp bead onto your wire.
  • Thread the remaining wire through the loop at the bottom of the toggle, then fold it back and through the crimp bead you just added.
  • Pull the crimp bead and toggle piece as close as possible to the final bead, then thread the wire through a few beads that are closest to this end of the clasp.
  • Crimp the bead with your crimper tool to secure it in place.
Step 5
To finish, just use your wire cutters to trim away any excess wire.
