Triple Play Bracelet

I used 3 strand spacer bars and three different beads (onyx and turquoise along with light siam crystals) to create a colorful bracelet with a lot of impact. This is probably one of my favorite multi-strand bracelets to date!

Shanna Steele, Auntie’s Beads Designer

Instructions:


1. Cut 3 pieces of beading wire measuring about 10 inches each. String a crimp bead toward the end of each piece of wire. Run each piece of wire through a loop in the 3-to-1 link then back down through each crimp bead. Use your chain nose pliers to secure the crimp beads.

2. On row 1, string the following pattern: turquoise, onyx, turquoise. Add a 3 strand spacer bar.

3. Repeat step 2 five more times.

4. String a turquoise, onyx, and another turquoise bead. Add a crimp bead. Run your wire through an outside loop on the other 3-to-1 separator then back down through crimp bead and the nearest turquoise bead. Use your chain nose pliers to crimp. Cut excess wire.

5. On row 2, string the following pattern: onyx, light siam, onyx. Run the wire through the center hole of the spacer bar.

6. Repeat step 5 five more times.

7. String the following: onyx, light siam, onyx. Add a crimp bead. Run your wire through the center loop on the other 3-to-1 separator then back down through crimp bead and the nearest onyx bead. Use your chain nose pliers to crimp. Cut excess wire.

8. Repeat steps 2 through 4 to complete row 3, making sure that you run your wire through the bottom holes of the spacer bars and crimp to the bottom loop of the 3-to-1 separator.

9. Attach a split ring to one end. Attach half of the toggle to the split ring.

10. Repeat step 9 on the other end.

Triple Play Bracelet
Beautiful bracelet. I think I will be making it in black onyx & white crystals. I see that they use split ring to attach the clasp. I am going to try that.I just use a jump ring but the split ring would be strongier.

I love the use of the multi-bead spacers and ends. These colors are stunning but it would also be beautiful in pastels or autumn blends or just various colors of glass pearls or even one solid color like onyx or carnelian!
