About This Project

I love creating simple bracelets that have symmetry created using different elements. In this case, I chose faceted crystal rondelles, wavy disc spacers and glass beads to create a piece that will go with anything and everything!

  1. Cut a piece of beading wire measuring about 10".
  2. Toward one end of your beading wire, string a crimp bead. Run the wire through half of the toggle then back down through the crimp bead. Crimp. Apply crimp cover.
  3. String a 6mm glass bead, a wavy disc, a crystal rondelle and a wavy disc.
  4. Repeat step 3 nine more times. You should have used a total of 10 rondelles and 10 6mm glass beads.
  5. String a 6mm glass bead followed by a crimp bead. Run your wire through the other half of the toggle then back down through the crimp bead and 6mm glass bead. Crimp. Apply crimp cover. Cut excess wire.
  6. Open a jump ring. Attach it to your heart charm then to the loop on the ring portion of the toggle. Close the jump ring.
