INSTRUCTIONS

Take your three pieces of coloured tigertail, thread through a large crimp, then through a strong jump ring. Thread back through the large crimp and pull up tight. Squish securely, cut off any excess tigertail and thread on a large holed decorative metal bead to hide the crimp.

Split the three strands up, and thread on (set 1):

Strand 1:

  • a medium rose silver foil round bead

Strand 2:

  • a 6/0 medium rose seed bead
  • a 6mm purple glass bead
  • a 6/0 medium rose seed bead

Strand 3:

  • a 6/0 medium rose seed bead
  • a butterfly metal bead
  • a 6/0 medium rose seed bead

Bring the three strands together again, and then thread a 6mm stardust metal bead over all three strands. Split the strands up again, and thread on (set 2):

Strand 1:

  • a 6/0 medium rose seed bead
  • a dark rose flat oval glass bead
  • a 6/0 medium rose seed bead

Strand 2:

  • a 6/0 medium rose seed bead
  • a dragonfly metal bead
  • a 6/0 medium rose seed bead

Strand 3:

  • a medium rose flat swirly disc glass bead

Bring the three strands together again, and then thread a 6mm stardust metal bead over all three strands. Repeat threading on the above two patterns, alternating between set one and set two, until you have 4 medium rose silver foil round beads and 4 medium rose flat swirly disc beads on your bracelet.

Thread all three strands through a large holed decorative metal bead, then through a crimp and a jump ring. Thread back through the large crimp, pull up tightly and squish securely. Cut off any excess tigertail.

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