Create the Bracelet

1. Take one end of your Buddy Braids wire and thread 1 crimp bead approximately an inch from the end.  Thread the bar end of your toggle clasp.  Thread the end back through the crimp bead.  Using crimping pliers (or any pliers you have) squeeze the crimp bead 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.

b. Repeat (a.) FOUR times.
c. 1 – Pink Rondelle

4. Thread 1 crimp bead and the round part of your toggle clasp.  Thread the wire back through the crimp bead after going through the loop on the toggle clasp.  Thread the wire through the last rondelle (see illustration 3).  Using your pliers, squeeze the crimp bead 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.
