Steps:

Note: Beads will be referred to by the abbreviations given in the materials list. Measure your wrist. The supplies give are sufficient to make a 7" bracelet. Add or remove beads to get the size you need.

  1. Thread one crimp bead on one end of your wire. Center bead. Pass both ends of the wire through one clamshell tip from inside out. Pull wires down snug so crimp bead sits in the bowl of the clamshell tip. Close clamshell around crimp bead.
     
  2. Refer to Figure #1 and pass one wire through one hole of an (a) bead, then through a (b) bead and back through second hole of the (a) bead and pull snug so beads are against each other. The gold wire will show.
     
  3. Take wire on other side through the first hole of the (a) bead from the opposite direction to the first wire. Pick up a (b) bead and pass the wire through the second hole of the (a) bead from the opposite direction to the first wire and pull snug. Repeat this pattern until you have the length you need.
     
  4. Pass both wires through a clamshell tip from the bottom. Thread a crimp bead on one wire and tie off wires against each other in a couple of knots. Trim wires and close clamshell. You can also crimp the two wires together in the clamshell. Trim wires and close clamshell.
     
  5. Attach one split ring to loop on clasp and one to hole on tag. Bend tabs of each clamshell tip around a split ring with the jewelry pliers.
