Tip: Use a bead bug to hold beads on the strand before crimping the second end of the bracelet so that you can double check lengths.

Instructions:
1. Cut the flexible beading wire into 5 8-inch strands.
2. Holding all strands as one, string one 10mm mother of pearl round, a crimp bead and the loop of the lobster clasp. Flatten the crimp bead and trim ends.
3. Onto one strand of flexible beading wire, string 75 hematine cubes. Place the bead bug on the beading wire.
4. Onto the next strand of flexible beading wire, string 1hematine chevron, 1 hematine diamond, and 1 hematine chevron, with the chevrons turned in so that they “cup” the diamond. Repeat this step 15 more times. Place wire in bead bug.
5. Onto the next strand of flexible beading wire, string 1 hematine chevron, 1 garnet round, and 1 hematine chevron, with the chevrons turned in so that they “cup” the garnet round. Repeat 13 more times. Place the wire in the bead bug.
6. Onto the fourth strand of flexible beading wire, string all of the pearls. Place the wire in the bead bug.
7. Onto the fifth strand of flexible beading wire, string all the peach Czech glass fire-polished rounds. Place the wire in the bead bug.
8. Double check that the strands are the same length. If they’re not, adjust by adding or removing beads.
9. Holding all strands as one, string 1 10mm mother of pearl round and a crimp bead. Pass the wires through the jump ring and back through the crimp bead. Flatten the crimp tube and trim excess wire.
10. Enjoy!
