Tip: This bracelet is just stringing, but it looks like it’s been woven. Take your time and follow the pattern to achieve this look! Use Bead Bugs to hold the strands in place as you work your way through the bracelet; they hold everything in place and help keep your tension.

Instructions:
1. Cut the flexible beading wire into 6 8-inch pieces. Holding 3 wires as one, pass them through a crimp tube, a clasp and back through the crimp tube. Flatten the tube and trim excess wire tails. Pass all three wires through 1 gold round.

2. Divide the wires. Onto 1 wire string 1 gold round, the top loops of a crystal and gold slider, 2 gold rounds, and the top holes of 1 turquoise medallion.

3. String 5 gold rounds and the top holes of 1 turquoise medallion. Repeat 2 more times. String 2 gold rounds, the top loops of a crystal and gold slider, and 1 gold round. Place a Bead Bug at the end of the strand.

4. Using the second wire string 1 gold round and pass through the bottom loops of the crystal and gold slider. String 2 gold rounds and the bottom holes of the turquoise medallion.*String 1 gold round, the top loops of a crystal slider, 1 gold round, the bottom loops of the turquoise medallion. Repeat from * two more times. String 2 gold rounds, the bottom loops of the already attached crystal slider, and 1 gold round. Place a Bead Bug at the end of the strand.

5. Using the third wire, you will be passing through the crystal sliders you’ve attached already. Pass the third wire through the single gold round at the beginning of the previous step and through the bottom loops of the crystal and gold slider. String 2 gold rounds. *String the top loops of 1 turquoise flower statement piece, 1 gold round, the bottom loops of the crystal and gold slider, and 1 gold round. Repeat from * two more times. String 1 turquoise flower statement piece and 2 gold rounds. Pass the wire through the bottom loops of a the crystal and gold slider and through the gold round from strand 2.

6. Pass all three wires through one gold round and a crimp tube. Pass the three wires through a jump ring and back through the crimp tube. Flatten the tube with chain nose pliers and trim any excess wire.

7. To complete the bracelet, repeat steps 2, 3 and 4, but in reverse to make the other side of the bracelet. Repeat step 5, but use the already attached turquoise flower statement pieces’ other loops to “zip up” the cuff.
