Simply Lovely Bracelet

By: Margot Potter for Beadalon

Glass coin beads and Beadalon wire turn this elegant bracelet into an exciting jewelry project.

Materials:

  • Nine Double AB Finish Textured Peach Czech Glass Coin Beads
  • Eight 6mm Swarovski Pacific Opal Rondelles
  • One GP Bird Charm
  • Two 5mm GP Jump Rings
  • GP Large Beadalon Toggle Clasp
  • Two GP Beadalon Wire Guardians
  • Two GP Beadalon Scrimps
  • 9” 19 Strand .018 Beadalon Wire
  • Beadstorm™ Chain Nose Pliers
  • Designer Flush Cutters
  • Scrimp Screw Driver Tool
  • Bead Board

Steps:

  1. Arrange beads and findings on your bead board. Precut a 9” length of beading wire.
     
  2. Place a wire guardian on one end of the toggle clasp, using chain nose pliers to gently tighten the guardian in place to prevent it from slipping out of the toggle clasp end.
     
  3. Thread the wire through a scrimp component, the wire guardian channel and back through the scrimp. Use chain nose pliers to pull wire through and secure against the scrimp component.
     
  4. Screw the scrimp securely onto the bead wire.
     
  5. Thread beads on the wire beginning with a coin and alternating between coins and rondelles until reaching the ninth coin.
     
  6. Attach a second wire guardian to the other end of toggle as before, threading the bead wire end through the scrimp, wire guardian and back through the scrimp. Use the chain nose pliers to secure the wire flush to the bottom of the scrimp. Round the design to prevent it from becoming too stiff before tightening the scrimp. Use the scrimp pliers to tighten the scrimp against the wire. Test the wire to ensure that it is properly secured on both sides.
     
  7. Attach bird charm to wire guardian loop with 2 jump rings.
