Amethyst Bracelet and Earrings


Materials:

For Necklaces:

  • Beadalon® 19 Strand wire, .018” diameter, bright colore
  • Twenty-three assorted 8-10mm amethyst glass beads
  • Two 2mm silver crimp tubes silver toggle clasp
  • Ten silver head pins
  • Round nose pliers
  • Beadalon Nipper tool

Earrings:

  • Two 8mm amethyst glass beads
  • Two 10-12mm amethyst glass beads
  • Two silver head pins
  • Two silver eye pins
  • Two silver ear wires
  • Beadstrom™ Round Nose pliers
  • Beadalon Nipper tool

Steps:

Tip: For a quick and easy version of this bracelet, simply omit the beaded charms.

Necklaces:

  1. Cut three 12" lengths of Beadalon® 19 Strand wire. Hold the strands together and string a crimp tube 1/2" from the end. String the wire through half of the clasp and back into the crimp tube to form a loop. Use crimping pliers to crimp the crimp tube.
     
  2. On one strand, leave 1/2", then string a glass bead. Wrap the Beadalon® wire around the bead and place the end of the Beadalon® wire back through the same hole to hold it in place. String five beads 1" apart along the length of the strand.
     
  3. Leave 3/4" and 1" on the other strands, then repeat the technique to string four beads 1" apart along the length of the strand.
     
  4. Hold the strands together and string a crimp tube and half of the clasp. Place the strand ends back into the crimp tube to form a loop. Adjust the strands so the bracelet is 7 1/4" long (or the desired length). Use crimping pliers to crimp the crimp tube.
     
  5. String a glass bead onto a head pin. Use round nose pliers to make a loop above the bead. Trim off any excess wire. Make ten beaded pins. Open the loops and attach one beaded pin between every two beads on the bracelet.

Earrings:

  1. Choose two sets of larger matching glass beads and two sets of smaller matching glass beads. String the larger bead onto an eye loop. Use round nose pliers to make a loop above the bead. Trim off any excess wire, then attach the beaded pin to an ear wire. String the smaller glass bead onto a head pin and make a loop above the bead. Trim off any excess wire and attach the smaller bead to the loop below the larger bead. Repeat for the other earring.
