Bracelet

  1. Fold wire in half to create one 1-yd length of wire that is double-thick.

2. Thread beads onto the double-thick wire in the following pattern: 1 gemstone, *1 pearl, 1 gemstone, 2 pearls, 1 gemstone; repeat from *.

3. Carefully make a slipknot with the wire, leaving a 3-inch tail. Tighten the slipknot onto your crochet hook.

4. Ch 3.

5. Slide 1 bead up to the crochet hook and ch over it. The pearl should now be “caught” in the ch stitch. This is called a beaded ch stitch.

6. Work 3 non-beaded ch stitches.

7. Repeat Steps 6 & 7 until all beads are incorporated. Finish off, leaving a 3-inch tail.

8. Grasp the bracelet at either end and pull firmly in opposite directions to flatten the wire stitches. This will give the bracelet a neater appearance.

9. Using the needle nose pliers, thread the beg 3-inch tail through the T-piece of the toggle clasp, sliding the T-piece up to the first chain stitch. Wrap the tail around the base of the T-piece at least 3 times to secure it into place. Trim the excess with wire cutters. Repeat for ending 3-inch tail and O-piece.
