Instructions
 

Step #1

With an open ring scoop up four closed rings, close the ring.

Step #2

With an open ring scoop up any two of the four rings added in step 1, before closing, add two closed rings, close the ring.

Step #3

With an open ring scoop up the two closed rings added in step 2, without twisting the chain, pick up the two remaining closed rings added in step 1, close the ring.

Step #4

Unfold the rings so the doubled rings are flat on the table and the single rings are pointing up.  They should look like a triangle.  Loop the twist tie through one of each of the doubled rings.  Make sure that all of the rings you pick up are from the same side.

Step #5

Flip the triangle so the three wired rings are on the bottom and the three “free” rings are on top.  With an open ring scoop up any of the two rings, close the ring.

Step #6

With an open ring scoop up one of the rings you scooped up in step 5 and its neighbor, close the ring.

Step #7

With an open ring scoop up the ring you scooped up in step 5 and the ring you added in step 6, close the ring.

Step #8

Repeat steps 5 through 7 until desired length is reached.

Step #9

With an open ring scoop any two rings, close the ring.

Step #10

With an open ring scoop up one of the rings you scooped up in step 9 and its neighbor, close the ring.

Step #11

With an 18g 1/8” ring scoop up the ring added in step 9 and the ring added in step 10, before closing add one end of the clasp, close the ring.

Step #12

Step #13

Step #14

With a pencil or beading awl open up one end of the wire mesh.

Step #15

Slide the bracelet into the wire mesh.

Step #16

Step #17

Step #18

Wire wrap 18 6mm pearls using the ball/star head pins.

Step #19
