natural shell bracelet

Create a bracelet from beads made from natural elements, such as shells and wood. Pair them with a few subtle metal accents for a stunning Natural Bracelet!
Step 1

First, cut two 10" [25.4 cm] pieces of stringing wire.

Step 2

Align the ends and slide a Copper crimp bead onto both wires. Now, slide the wire through the loop on the bar piece of a toggle clasp, then thread the wire end back through the crimp bead. Arrange so about ¼" [.64 cm] of the wires are sticking out of the crimp bead and the crimp bead is close to the loop on the bar of the toggle clasp.

Step 3

Push the small needle head of your glue inside the crimp to add a little glue and then squeeze the crimp bead with your pliers to crimp.

Step 4

String your beads on the two individual wires.

Step 5

Slide a Copper crimp bead onto both wires. Now, slide the wire through the loop on the circle piece of a toggle clasp, then thread the wire end back through the crimp bead. Thread through a few adjacent beads, pull the wires taut then trim excess wire.

Step 6

Push the small needle head of your glue inside the crimp to add a little glue and then squeeze the crimp bead with your pliers to crimp.
