Create the Azurite Drops

aztb1Azurite Drops (2) - Add 1 – Azurite 6mm Semiprecious Round to a ball pin.  Make a 90° bend in ball pin above the bead.  Using round nose pliers (or any pliers you have) hold the ball pin near the angle and bend it around the pliers to make a loop.  Wrap down around ball pin creating as many coils as you can.  Trim any extra.  Repeat 1 time.


Create the Wrap Bracelet

1. Take one end of your Buddy Braids wire and thread one crimp tube approximately an inch from the end.  Thread the loop of 1 – Azurite Drop.  Thread the Buddy Braids back through the crimp tube.  Using crimping pliers (or any pliers you have) squeeze the crimp tube about a 1/8th of an inch away from the loop of the Azurite Drop.  See illustration 1.  Trim the excess leaving about a half an inch, you will thread the beads over both.

b. Repeat pattern in Step (a.) 14 times.
c. 1 – Aqua AB 4mm Crystal Bicone, 1 – Magnetic Hematite 8x5mm Faceted Tube, and 1 – Aqua AB 4mm Crystal Bicone.

4. Thread one crimp tube and the other Azurite Drop.  Thread the wire back through the crimp tube after going through the loop on the Azurite Drop. Thread the wire through several beads (See Illustration 2).  Using your pliers, squeeze the crimp tube about a 1/8th of an inch away from the Azurite Drop and an 1/8th of inch away from the last bead to leave space for your bracelet to wrap easier.  Trim the excess wire as close to the bead as you can.

You are done!!  To put this bracelet on simply wrap it around your wrist several times, the magnetic hematite beads will line up and keep it in place!  You can also wear this as a necklace or anklet, just line up several of the hematite beads and they will act as a clasp!!

**If the magnetic hematite beads do not line up and “stick” together you may need to adjust the length of your bracelet, you can do this by adding 3x2mm Rondelles to make it bigger or subtracting them to make it smaller.
