"This set, three row pearl and rondelle bracelet and earring set, took me one weekend day to complete. I used two different sizes of white pearls 10mm and 0mm I also used 5mm topaz rondelle for a little added splash of color, the bracelet is 10 ins. long from clasp to clasp, you can do sets of two 5mm instead of the three if it is to long, the earring are 3 ins. long, from end to the earhook. If earrings are to long you can design a pair with just two of the 0mm and one rondelle, or just one 10mm pearl."

Onto all three wires add one topaz and one 10mm pearl bead. Add the spacer bar on threading one wire through each hole in the bar.
This step you can do in an assembly-line or one row at a time ( which ever way is comfortable for you)
Start with one 0mm pearl one topaz another 0mm, 3 10mm pearls, one 0mm, one topaz, one 0mm, ( if you do it one row at a time use a bead stopper to hold your beads on) add a topaz onto all three wires at the same time, first set is finished, repeat the same steps for the other two sets.
To finish the bracelet, add the second spacer bar, the same way you did at the beginning, add the 10mm pearl, add the topaz onto the three wires, add the crimp bead, add the second part of the toggle, fold back down into the crimp bead, and crimp.
