1. Cut 2 25-inch pieces of bead stringing wire.

2. Pass one wire through the loop of the Peace connector and pull it halfway through so that the two ends meet. 

3. Onto both wires string one crimp bead.

4. Split the wires and string 3 silver seed beads onto each wire. Place a bead stopper on one end of the wire. 

5. Onto the other end of the wire, string a light blue duo bead and one seed bead. Repeat 18 more times. 

6. String a red duo bead and one seed bead 45 times. String 2 more seed beads and a crimp tube. Remove the bead stopper from the end of the wire and place it on this end of the wire to hold the beads in place.

7. Pass the other tail of the beading wire through the duo first strung duo bead. String one seed bead. Repeat until you've passed through all the strung duo beads. String 2 more seed beads and pass the wire through the crimp tube and the lobster clasp. Pass both wires back through the crimp tube. Flatten the tube and trim excess wire.

8. Repeat steps 2-7 to create the other side of the bracelet, substituting white duo beads for the red duo beads and a jump ring for the lobster clasp.
