Alternative Configurations:

The first alternative configuration is to make matching earrings for your bracelet.  Using six 6mm beads, six head pins, and one commercial ear wire finding we can easily make matching earrings.  Use the two extra duplex wire components that we made in step 12.  Attach three bead dangles to the bottom three loops in each duplex wire component using your head pins and beads. Instructions for making a bead dangle can be found here.  Connect the top of the duplex wire component to your ear wire finding using a modified figure 8 connector.  Instructions for making this modified figure 8 connector can be found here.

The second alternative configuration is to consider using the horizontal/vertical alignment of your jig instead of the diagonal.  This pattern is shown at right.  This pattern will make a bracelet that is wider.

The third alternative configuration is to add a bead to the middle of the "middle" wire component as shown at right.  This is accomplished by making the initial loop, then adding the bead, then making the final loop.

The final alternative when you are really ambitious is to go for triplex.  This is a three layer bracelet made using the wire components shown at right.
