American Bead Bracelet


Materials:

  • Soft Flex Wire, .024 Diameter, Original Steel Tone - need 7-8 inches
  • 2mmx2mm Sterling Silver Crimp Tubes - 2 crimps

  1. Cut approximately 7" or 8" of Soft Flex .019 wire from the spool. String one sterling silver crimp tube, then one side of your toggle, and then put the wire back through the crimp. Secure using crimping pliers. Cut off excess wire using Flush Cutters.
