Black/Bronze 2 Strand Bracelet: Project Instructions

Posted by Eureka! Beads on 20th Mar 2019

Bohemian bronze coloured findings really set this project off. Our bracelet features 3 strand spacers (we're only using two of the holes), 8mm round crystals, jump rings and a magnetic clasp - read on to find out more.

MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • 18 x 8mm round faceted glass crystals
  • 8 x 3 strand fancy filigree spacers
  • 1 magnetic clasp with loops
  • 2 filigree metal tubes
  • 2 x 6mm strong jump rings
  • 2 small tube crimps
  • 40cm tigertail

TOOLS REQUIRED

  • Wire Cutters
  • Crimping Pliers
  • Twirly Wirlies

INSTRUCTIONS

Pick up the tigertail and thread through one of the jump rings. Continue threading until the jump rings] sits halfway along the strand. Fold the strand of tigertail in half, and thread a small tube crimp over the two strands and up to the jump ring. Crimp down securely.

Thread a filigree metal tube over the two strands, so that it sits up tight next to the jump ring, hiding the crimp. Now, separate the two strands, and thread onto an 8mm round faceted glass crystal onto each strand. Then thread each strand through either side of the 3 strand fancy filigree spacer bar.

Repeat this pattern until you have 8 3-strand fancy filigree spacers threaded on. Finish with one more round faceted glass crystal on each strand.

Bring the two strands together again, and thread on a filigree metal tube, followed by a small tube crimp. Thread on the other jump ring, then take the tigertail back through the crimp. Pull up tightly, squish down the crimp and cut off any excess tigertail.

Open up one of the jump rings and thread on one end of the magnetic clasp, then close securely. Open up the other jump ring, thread on the other end of the magnetic clasp and close securely. Your bracelet is now ready to wear!
