Create the Bracelet

1. Take one end of your Buddy Braids wire and thread 1 crimp tube approximately an inch from the end.  Thread the loop of the bar end of the toggle clasp.  Thread the end back through the crimp tube.  Using crimping pliers (or any pliers you have) squeeze the crimp tube about a 1/4th of an inch away from the clasp.  See illustration 1.  Trim the excess leaving about a half an inch, you will thread the beads over both.

3. Thread the following:
a. 1 Jet 6mm Crystal Bicone, 1 Gunmetal 5x6mm 6-Leaf Bead Cap, 1 Gunmetal 3mm Round Metal Bead, 1 Gunmetal 1x6mm Thin Filigree Bead Cap, 1 Garnet 8mm Czech Fire Polished Bead, 1 Gunmetal 1x6mm Thin Filigree Bead Cap, 1 Gunmetal 3mm Round Metal Bead, 1 Gunmetal 5x6mm 6-Leaf Bead Cap, 1 Jet 6mm Crystal Bicone, 1 Gunmetal 3mm Round Metal Bead, 1 Black AB 8x5mm Crystal Rondelle, and 1 Gunmetal 3mm Round Metal Bead.

b. Repeat pattern in Step (a.) THREE times.

c. 1 Jet 6mm Crystal Bicone, 1 Gunmetal 5x6mm 6-Leaf Bead Cap, 1 Gunmetal 3mm Round Metal Bead, 1 Gunmetal 1x6mm Thin Filigree Bead Cap, 1 Garnet 8mm Czech Fire Polished Bead, 1 Gunmetal 1x6mm Thin Filigree Bead Cap, 1 Gunmetal 3mm Round Metal Bead, 1 Gunmetal 5x6mm 6-Leaf Bead Cap, and 1 Jet 6mm Crystal Bicone.

4. Thread 1 crimp tube and the round part of your toggle clasp.  Thread the wire back through the crimp tube after going through the loop on the toggle clasp.  Thread the wire through the last few beads (see illustration 3).  Using your pliers, squeeze the crimp tube about a 1/4th of an inch away from the clasp and an 1/8th of inch away from the last bead to have room for your crimp cover.  Trim the excess wire as close to the bead as you can.

5. Add your crimp cover by placing it over your crimp bead and squeezing it closed.

You are done!  These directions make a bracelet that is approximately 8 inches long.  If you need to change the length just add or subtract beads.   You can use this pattern with any color beads you wish!  However, we love the look created by mixing the dark red and black colors with the glass and metal.
