Pacific Sunset Bracelet Project

Reminiscent of a beach sunset, this summertime bracelet is perfectly paired with beach attire.
1) Cut eight 2" lengths of wire from the spool. Pick the first length up and begin to make a wrapped loop on one end. Before closing the loop completely, thread on the bar half of the toggle clasp. Finish the wrapped loop then thread on one crystal round bead. Create a wrapped loop with the other end of the length of wire.

2) Pick up the second length of wire and begin to make a wrapped loop on one end. Before closing the loop completely, thread the loop onto the free loop from step #1. Finish the loop and then thread on one of the czech glass beads. Make a wrapped loop with the remaining wire -- be sure to make this loop perpendicular to the first loop that you made. Repeat this step five more times.

3) Pick up the last length of wire and begin to make another wrapped loop. Before closing the loop completely, attach this to the free loop at the end of the bracelet. Finish the loop and then thread on one crystal bead. Begin to make another wrapped loop with the free end of wire but before closing the loop completely, thread on the other round half of the toggle clasp. Continue finishing this loop and you're done!
