Instructions:

  1. Cut four 12 in. lengths of beading wire.
     
  2. Using crimp tubes, attach one end of a wire to each outer loop on a 3-to-1 ring end connector. Hold two wires together and attach them to the center loop.
     
  3. Separate the strands into two sets, each with one outer strand and one center strand.
     
  4. Using one set of strands, pass an outer wire through a 4mm burgundy bead and a 6mm burgundy bead.
     
  5. Pass the center wire through the opposite end of the 6mm burgundy bead.
     
  6. Pass the new outer wire through a tanzanite bead, a rose bead and another tanzanite bead.
     
  7. Pass the new center wire through a light rose bead.
     
  8. Pass the wire ends through opposite sides of a 6mm burgundy bead to form a circle.
     
  9. Repeat Steps 6-8 using the other set of wires, connecting the circles by passing the center wire through the existing cube bead. To make consistent stitches, adjust the wire tension as you go.
     
  10. Repeat the beading pattern to string all of the beads except for a 6mm burgundy crystal.
     
  11. Using crimp tubes, attach the beading wires to a 3-to-1 ring end connector, as in Step 2.
     
  12. Using a jump ring, attach a clasp to one end of the bracelet.
     
  13. String a 6mm burgundy bead onto a head pin. Make a wrapped loop to attach it to the other end of the bracelet.
