Designer Tips

  • If using the bulk cable chain, measure desired length, use 2 pairs of chain-nose pliers to open link at desired length, attach one end of the toggle, and repeat for other end.
  • Cut the wire into sixteen 1" pieces and set aside.
  • Attach one jump ring on each sea life charm and set aside. For the shell bead slide it onto one head pin, make a simple loop and set aside.
  • Using one head pin, slide on a 4mm pearl and make a simple loop. Using one piece of wire, make a simple loop, slide on one 8mm 5040 Lt Turquoise bead and make a simple loop, then attach the pearl drop. Repeat 5 more times and set aside.

  • Using one head pin, slide on one 8mm pearl and make a simple loop. Using one piece of wire make a simple loop, and slide on a 6mm 5328 Peridot bead and make a simple loop, then attach the pearl drop. Repeat 4 more times and set aside.
  • Using one head pin, slide on one 8mm 5000 Lt. Turquoise bead and make a simple loop. Repeat 14 more times and set aside.
  • Using one head pin slide on one 6mm 5328 Peridot bead and make a simple loop. Repeat 5 more times and set aside.
  • Using one head pin slide on one 6mm pearl and make a simple loop. Repeat 14 more times and set aside.
  • Using one piece of wire make a simple loop and slide on 6mm pearl and make a simple loop and attach one Xilion Rose Peach pendant. Repeat 4 more times and set aside.
  • Using jump rings attach to one Xilion Rose Peach pendant. Repeat 4 more times and set aside.
  • Now add all these fun beachy components to desired locations along the length of the bracelet! Be sure to leave a few links empty near the bar end of the toggle, to make sure that you can easily close the toggle clasp.
