  • 9 large-hole glass beads

Instructions:

  2. Add or remove beads to adjust strand length to equal 3/4 inch less than desired bracelet length.
     
  3. Use split ring tool to add a split ring to each piece of toggle clasp.
     
  4. To attach toggle clasp pieces to ends of bracelet, string a crimp bead onto wire; then string wire through split ring. (Be sure to attach toggle bar to end of bracelet with 3/4 inch of small glass beads.) Slide wire back through crimp bead and flatten bead with chain nose pliers. Slide end of wire through a few beads on bracelet. Cut off excess wire.
     
  5. Repeat to attach other piece of toggle clasp to other end of bracelet. Don’t pull too tightly on wire when crimping or bracelet will be stiff and not drape nicely.

Have you wanted a pandora bracelet but cannot afford one then why not make one. You can make it just like you like it. The color and beads. This pandora style bead and crystal bracelet is a great place to start. The beads and colors are spectular. They are easier to make then you think. A beginner can make one. This is a good time to make one for Mom for Mother's Day in her favorite color and while you are at it why not make one for you.
