Staying Hopeful Bracelet Project

About This Project

I wanted to design a bracelet that incorporated bali, crystal, sterling silver and lampwork all together.  I love black and this cute lampwork bead inspired me to pair it with bright peridot and light rose.

1.  Use your nipper tool to cut a piece of beading wire measuring about 10 inches. On the end, place a bead stopper
 
2.  String your beads in the following order: 
two 4mm sterling beads,
two 6mm sterling beads,
three 6mm jet crystals,
one bali square,
one 10mm peridot crystal,
one bali square,
one 8mm onyx round,
one bali square,
one 6mm jet crystal,
one Hope message bead,
one 6mm jet crystal,
one bali square,
one 8mm onyx bead,
one bali square,
one 10mm light rose crystal,
one bali square,
one 6mm jet crystal,
one bali square,
one 8mm onyx bead,
one bali square,
one lampwork round with green dots and pink swirls,
one bali square,
three 6mm jet crystal,
two 6mm sterling beads
two 4mm sterling beads.
 
3.  On one end of your bracelet, string your charm over the two ending 4mm sterling beads. 
 
4.  On the side you strung your charm, use your chain nose jewelry pliers to crimp the wire to the bar end of our toggle.  On the other end, crimp to the circle end of your toggle.  Be sure to string your wire back through the first few beads prior to crimping on both ends.  Use your nipper tool to trim excess wire.
 
Note:  Be sure to pull your wire tightly enough that no wire is seen between beads, but be careful that your bracelet is still flexible.  This prevents breaking.
