Project Description:

These pink jasper rounds are just stunning, and they really pop with the intermittent Crystal AB Swarovski bicones. It is finished with a nice, pretty, sturdy multi-strand magnetic clasp in gold tone. This bracelet looks very glamorous on the arm! You truly will stun and sparkle when you wear it.

Instructions:
  1. This project uses basic beading techniques. You can learn straight stringing and crimping techniques by watching this video. If you create your piece using these instructions, you will make a 6 1/2 inch bracelet (it should fit snugly, cuff style). Simply add a few beads to make the bracelet longer to fit a larger wrist.
  2. Cut 6 pieces of wire, 14 inches each. Crimp a piece of wire to the first of the 6 loops. String a pattern of 4 jasper beads, 1 bicone, 4 jasper beads, 1 bicone, etc. until you have strung about 50 beads. Put a bead stopper on the end to hold the beads in place. Repeat this process 5 more times to complete all the loops on one side of the clasp.
  3. Holding two strands together, braid the strands of beads.
  4. Crimp the strands to the corresponding holes on the other side of the clasp.

Rating Prettier in real life!
 
I made this braclet following Kelly's instructions and it's really pretty. I made one with turquoise colored beads and the clear crystals. I think the clasp is great, but it seems a little heavy with the 6mm beads. I'm going to try making one with 8mm beads. We'll see if it works! :) Anyway, thank you for the instructions, Kelly!
