Learn how to make this Heavy Metal Twisting Bracelet using an assortment of square Miyuki 'Metallic' beads and a stunning gold plated leaf design toggle clasp.

Step 1

The finished bracelet is approx. 8" long when it is finished, you may want to include less beads for a snugger bracelet for smaller wrists. 

Step 2

Cut 5 lengths of approx. 6.5" of wire. 

Step 3

Attach one end of each to the loops on the rose gold fancy bar clasp using crimp beads. 

Step 4

Thread on approx. 40 of the Miyuki square 4mm beads in gold onto one wire. 
Thread the same amount of the Miyuki square 4mm metallic dark gold onto another wire. 
Thread the same amount of the Miyuki square 4mm metallic hematite onto a third wire. 

Step 5

Thread on approx. 35-37 of the bronze and silver metatite cube beads onto the last two strands. 
You may want to add these slightly larger cubes to the 2nd and 4th wires on the fancy bar clasp to evenly spread out the sizes. 

Step 6

Finish each strand by securing it to the second fancy bar clasps loops, using crimp beads. Trim off any excess wire. 
Make sure the beads on the wires aren't too close together, so the bracelet has movement. 

Step 7

Lay your bracelet with the patterned side of the fancy bar clasp facing up. 
Twist one end of the bracelet around until the patterned side of the fancy bar clasp is facing you again. 

Step 8

Attach your toggle clasp to the bracelet while it is in this position (using jumprings).
