This bracelet combines Swarovski hexagonal two hole spike beads in crystal rose gold, with light silk bicones and velvet brown pearls for a vintage look with a modern edge! 

If you want to make your own version of this design, use the links below to get your materials. Don't forget your wire and glue! 

2x 2 hole Swarovski Spike beads 
2x Swarovski 4mm bicones
1x 6mm round pearls
1x 5mm Swarovski chatons
2x Metal bar connectors

Step 1

Cut a 1-metre length of wire and find the centre point. Thread on the bar of the toggle clasp to the centre. Thread a crimp bead onto both ends of the wire and slide it up next to the clasp. Pull the wire tight and squash the crimp bead flat.

Step 2

Thread a 4mm bicone onto both strands of wire. Onto each strand, string on another 4mm bicone, 6mm pearl, 4mm bicone and then a metal connector. Then string on a 4mm bicone, 6mm pearl and pass the wires through both sides of a spike bead. On the same strand you will now mirror the pattern with a 6mm pearl, 4mm bicone and a metal connector. Repeat the pattern until you have used five metal connectors and check the size against your wrist.

Step 3

When you reach the end and have added your 4mm bicone, 6mm pearl and 4mm bicone, pass both wires through another 4mm bicone. Then thread a crimp bead onto both strands, pass the wires through the loop of the clasp and bring them back through the crimp bead. Pull the wires so the crimp bead in snug against the clasp. Squash the crimp bead flat and weave the tail ends into your design. Finish by glueing your crystals into the connector settings and allow to dry before wearing your bracelet.
