MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • 30cm tigertail
  • 2 small crimps
  • 2 crimp covers
  • 9 x 10mm round lava stone beads
  • 16 x 3mm plain metal beads
  • 8 x 8mm rondelle glass crystal beads
  • 1 decorative oval diamante box clasp

TOOLS REQUIRED

  • 2 pairs of Crimping Pliers
  • Wire Cutters

INSTRUCTIONS

Pick up your piece of tigertail and thread it through a small crimp, then through one end of the decorative oval diamante box clasp. Thread back through the small crimp and pull up tight. Squish securely and cut off any excess tigertail. Place a crimp cover around the squashed crimp and gently squish into a round ball with your pliers to hide the crimp.

Next, thread on:

  • a 10mm round lava stone bead
  • a plain metal bead
  • an 8mm rondelle glass crystal bead
  • a plain metal bead

Repeat pattern another 7 times, so that you have eight 10mm round lava stone beads on your bracelet.

Finish by threading on a 10mm round lava stone bead. Thread on a small crimp, the other end of the decorative oval diamante box clasp and then back through the small crimp. Pull up tightly (but leave enough space to put another crimp cover over the crimp) and squish down the small crimp. Cut off any excess tigertail. Place a crimp cover around the squashed crimp and gently squish into a round ball with your pliers to hide the crimp. Your bracelet is now ready to wear!
