Something New Pearl Bracelet

Step 1

To make a 7-inch bracelet, begin by cutting a 12-inch length of wire. Thread on a calotte and a crimp bead. Then pass the end of the wire back through the calotte, leaving a 2-inch tail. Squash the crimp bead flat and cover it with your calotte.

Step 2

Thread on your beads in the following order.

P = Pearl
R = Rondelle
CC = Carrier charm

2P, R, 3P, R, 3P, R, 2P, CC, 2P, R, 3P, R, 3P, R, 2P. 

Step 3

Check the size against your wrist and amend the pattern if necessary. Finish your wire as before, passing the end through a calotte and a crimp bead. Pass the wire back through the calotte and back through the beads. Insert a pin inside the loop of wire and pull the wire so that the calotte is flush to the end pearl and there are no gaps along the design. Squash the crimp bead flat and cover it with the calotte. 

Step 4

For each side of the bracelet, close the loop of the calotte onto the rings either side of the clasp. Open the loop of the crystal setting with your pliers and close it onto the loop of the carrier charm. Apply a drop of glue to the crystal setting, insert the Swarovski crystal and allow to fully dry (up to 24 hours) before wearing.
