MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • 30cm tigertail
  • 2 small crimps
  • 1 x 6mm strong jump ring
  • 2 crimp covers
  • 8 x chrysocolla 8mm round beads
  • 22 x 3mm plain metal beads

TOOLS REQUIRED

INSTRUCTIONS

Pick up your piece of tigertail and thread it through a small crimp, then through the strong jump ring. 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 chrysocolla 8mm round bead
  • a plain metal bead
  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead
  • a plain metal bead
  • a 6mm stardust metal bead
  • a plain metal bead
  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead
  • a plain metal bead
  • a chrysocolla 8mm round bead
  • a plain metal bead
  • a dragonfly metal bead
  • a plain metal bead

Repeat pattern another 2 times, so that you have three dragonfly metal beads on your bracelet.

Finish by threading on:

  • a chrysocolla 8mm round bead
  • a plain metal bead
  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead
  • a plain metal bead
  • a 6mm stardust metal bead
  • a plain metal bead
  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal bead
  • a plain metal bead
  • a chrysocolla 8mm round bead

Thread on a small crimp, then through the loop on the parrot clasp, 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!
