Sweet repeat bracelet

Curved beads combine with crystals in a dainty two-strand bracelet
SweetrepeatbraceletHero
Throw crystals a curve with a deceptively easy two-strand bracelet. A simple pattern of alternating silver beads and crystals yields a delicate bracelet. If you have a free hour, you’ll be able to make several — and you’ll have a handful of gifts in no time.

SUPPLIES

  • 11–13 13mm two-strand curved tube beads
  • 30–34 4mm bicone crystals, 16–18 of one color, 14–16 of another color
  • 4 2mm round spacers
  • flexible beading wire, .014 or .015
  • 4 crimp beads
  • two-strand toggle clasp
  • chainnose or crimping pliers
  • diagonal wire cutters

4. On each end, string a crimp bead, a spacer, and the respective loop of half of the clasp. Go back through the last three beads strung. Tighten the wires and check the fit. Add or remove an equal number of beads from each end, if necessary. Crimp the crimp beads and trim the excess wire.
