Instructions:

1. Begin by cutting 2 strands of 19-strand wire, each 11 inches long.  If you bead this bracelet as instructed it will be approximately 7 inches long and will give you 2 extra inches to work with at each end which will make finishing your project easier.

 2. Pick up one end of your double looped clasp and string one strand to each of the loops by feeding a crimp on your wire, placing the wire through one of the clasp loops and feeding the wire back through the crimp.  Be sure to pull at least an inch of wire back through the crimp, but no more than 2 inches or you will leave yourself with shorter wire at the other end making it more difficult to secure your wire to the clasp. Tighten the wire making sure the tail is not more than 2 inches and that the crimp is flush against the clasp.  Now crimp the crimp and do the same for the other strand of wire.

3. Now you will begin feeding your beads, on both stands as you go.  So first one strand and the the other.  This is important since we are using brackets.  If you bead one complete strand and then attempt to do the other it will be difficult and could end in you loosing some of your beads off of the first strands.

4. Bead in this pattern:

Copper deco bead, flat copper heishi bead, lime green jade bead, copper seed bead, olivine 6 mm swarovski crystal bicone, copper seed bead, lime green jade bead, flat copper heishi bead, copper deco bead, flat heishi bead, olivine 6mm swarovski crystal bicone, flat copper heishi bead, copper deco bead, flat heishi bead brings you to the first bracket.  At this point make sure you both strands beaded and ready to string the bracket on to both strands.

5.Once the first bracket has been strung then string on a copper seed bead, lime green jade bead, copper seed bead, olivine 6mm swarovski crystal bicone, copper seed bead, lime green jade bead, copper deco bead and your second bracket.

6.Once the second bracket is strung and both strands are in the same order, string on a flat copper heishi bead, a copper deco beead, flat copper heishi bead, olivine 6 mm swarovski crystal bicone, flat copper heishi bead, copper deco bead, flat copper heishi bead and the 3rd and last bracket.

7. Once the third bracket is strung, and both strands are in the same order, string a copper deco bead, lime green jade bead, copper seed bead, olivine 6 mm crystal bicone, copper seed bead, lime green jade bead and copper seed bead.

8. Now that your pattern is complete, string your crimps, feed the strands through the clasp not yet strung, feed the wire back through the crimps and crimp. Take the tail of your wire and feed back through a few of your beads before trimming off the extra wire not needed.

Single Strand Bracelet Instructions:

1. Cut approximately 11 inches of 19-strand wire and crimp one end to on end of your clasp.  Your beading pattern is as follows:

Copper seed bead, lime green jade bead, one copper bead cap, lime green jade bead, one copper bead cap, lime green jade bead, copper seed bead, olivine 6 mm swarovski crystal bicone, copper seed bead, lime green jade bead, copper bead cap, lime green jade bead, copper bead cap, lime green jade bead, copper seed bead, oliving 6 mm swarovski crystal bead, copper 9 mm spacer bead, lime green jade bead, copper 9 mm spacer bead, lime green jade bead, copper 9 mm spacer bead, olivine 6 mm swarovski crystal bicone, copper seed bead,  lime green jade bead, one copper bead cap, lime green jade bead, one copper bead cap, lime green jade bead, copper seed bead, olivine 6 mm swarovski crystal bicone, copper seed bead, lime green jade bead, copper bead cap, lime green jade bead, copper bead cap, lime green jade bead, copper seed bead, oliving 6 mm swarovski crystal bead and a copper seed bead which completes your pattern.  

2. Now string the wire through a crimp then through the other end of the clasp, back through your crimp.  Now pull your wire so that any extra wire is not showing through out your pattern and then crimp.
