Caribbean Crystal Expansion Bracelet Project

Our expansion bracelets are like a cross between a stretch bracelet and charm bracelet. With this project, many different bright Swarovski Crystals dance and sway with every move you make!

1) This bracelet consists of six bicone colors, grouped in two's by color group. (two yellows-Jonquil and Light Topaz. Two reds--Padparadscha and Indian Red. Two blues -- Caribbean Blue Opal and Blue Zircon)

2) Thread one bicone (whichever color you choose to start with) onto a head pin(B). Make a wrapped loop, attaching the biconed headpin to a point on expansion bracelet(A) before closing and wrapping the loop. Repeat 125 more times, using all of the bicones and headpins.

3) You may follow the pattern shown here is you like or attach the different color bicones randomly. Either way, when you're all done this bracelet will definitely make you feel like you've been whisked away to a tropical isle!
