This is the two strand bracelet, made using twenty-eight 8mm pearl beads and about the same number of size 6 seed beads. The wire used to make this bracelet is 18 gauge wire, preferable 1/2 hard. The beads are strung on size .019 Soft Flex or Soft Touch bead stringing wire. A commercial clasp is used to finish the bracelet.
Four wire components are used in this bracelet. There are two two-loop end components, two 2-1 components, 3 two hole spacers and 2-3 chain segments. You can view all four components in the bracelet below.
This bracelet is made preferably using the WigJig Delphi or Centaur, but could be made using the WigJig Olympus Lite or Olympus. It requires 8 regular metal pegs and two 3/16" Super Pegs. You can view the peg pattern for the four wire components used in this bracelet at right. The steps involved in making this bracelet begin below.
Step 1: Using your flush cutter, cut two wire segments in each of the following lengths -- 2 1/8", 1 3/8", and 2 1/2". Cut three wire segments 1 1/4" long.
Step 2: Make a loop in the end of the cut wire segment with the flush cut. This loop needs to be the size of the peg in your jig. If you have a Fine Step Jaw Pliers, this will make it easier to make all the loops the same size.
Step 3: Using your nylon jaw pliers, straighten all the wire segments.
