You Will Need:
8mm beads in 2 colours

Tools (not included on 'Materials' tab as you may already have them)
Standard Crimping Pliers
Flat Nose Pliers
Scissors or Wire Cutters
wearing bracelet

Step 1

Cut a piece of wire approx. 30cm long. Thread a crimp bead on to one end.

Step 2

Thread the wire through the lobster clasp and then back through the crimp bead.

Step 3

Place the crimp in the back recess of the crimping pliers. Close the pliers. This will create a half moon shape with the crimp bead.

Step 4

Now remove the crimp and place into the front cavity so the crimp creates a 'c' shape as you look at it. Close the pliers again and the crimp bead should form a rounded shape.

Step 5

Now thread on your beads alternating one colour after the other. I added X beads which made a bracelet that was X long.

Step 6

After your last bead thread on a crimp bead.

Step 7

Thread the wire through a jump ring, making sure the ring is tightly closed or the wire could slip out of the gap. Now thread the wire back through the crimp bead and through about 3 of the strung beads to hide the end of wire. Crimp to secure following steps 3 to 4.

Step 8

Cut off any excess wire that is sticking out below the third bead you threaded back through. Make sure you don't cut through the centre thread when doing this.
