Wild & Free Bracelet Tutorial
Created by: Sondra Barrington
Wire wrap an aquamarine bead to the tassel. Make a loop on top end. For step-by-step wrapped loop instructions, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF)
Place wire wrapped aquamarine, peridot, and turquoise beads on one end of 2" of chain.
Place a bead stopper on one end of Soft Flex wire.
String charms and beads in a beautiful fashion on the flexwire.
Add wire guard, and crimp lobster onto end of wire.
Remove bead stopper and crimp chain (end without bead dangles) onto the other end of wire. Tip: always pull beads taught on wire in a circumference form... not straight... this will keep beads smooth and not too tight on wire.
Add bead dangles onto wire guard loops for decoration.
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.
Suggested Supplies Quantities of beads noted are approximate - vary according to your preference and desired bracelet length.
