Instructions

  1. Using wire cutters, cut the beading wire into seven 12-inch lengths. 

  2. Place one crimp bead and the first loop on one side of the tube bar clasp onto a 12-inch length of beading wire. Pass the wire back through the crimp bead, and crimp the crimp bead. Cover the crimp bead with a crimp cover, and trim excess wire with wire cutters. 

  3. Repeat Steps 1 – 2 twice, attaching two more lengths of beading wire to the same loop on the same side of the tube bar clasp. 

  4. In the same manner as in Step 3, attach two lengths of beading wire to the second loop on the same side of the tube bar clasp. 

  5. Repeat Step 4 on the third loop. 

  6. String 56 4mm Light Grey pearl beads onto the first beading wire strand. Use a bead stopper to temporarily secure the end of the wire. 

  7. In the same manner as in Step 6, string these beads onto each of the remaining strands of beading wire (one type of bead per strand). Secure each strand temporarily with a bead stopper after stringing:
    38 – 6mm Pearlescent White pearl beads
    22 – 10mm Pearlescent White coin pearls
    38 – 6mm Graphite bicone beads
    56 – 4mm Pearlescent White pearl beads
    62 – 4mm Graphite bicone beads
    38 – 6mm Light Grey pearl beads 

  8. Using wire cutters, cut a 9-inch length of 3mm Crystal AB round bezel rhinestone chain. Repeat with the 4.5mm Crystal AB round bezel rhinestone chain. 

  9. Use one smaller chain end to attach one end of the 3mm rhinestone chain to the second loop on the same side of the tube bar clasp used previously. Repeat with a larger chain end to attach the 4.5mm rhinestone chain to the third loop. 

  10. Lay the strung strands onto the work surface vertically. Use one bead stopper to secure the first two strands, a second bead stopper to secure the second two strands, and a third to secure the remaining strands. 

  11. Braid the groups of strands loosely. 

  12. Remove the bead stoppers. Crimp the free ends of the beading wires to the loops on the second side of the tube bar clasp. Cover the crimps with crimp covers. Use the remaining chain ends to attach the rhinestone chains to the clasp.

Who can't use a simple Pearl bracelet? This is a very easy project. You can add or remove pieces, it's your choice. Plus think of mixing other colors with it. Red with pearls for valentines Day, red and green for the winter holidays. I want to make one with purple and pearls. My to do list is so long I will have to live to be 100 to get them all done. That's some incentive I think.
