How to create a peridot shamrock bracelet

peridot shamrock bracelet

Step One

Cut two 8" pieces of 0.4mm wire, hold them together and using Round Nose pliers bend them in the middle to form a loop. Wrap the ends around a couple of times before twisting them together as close to the loop as possible.

Step Two

Spread the four wires out like a propeller and thread on one Heart Shaped Peridot bead so the narrow end points to the middle of the twist

Step Three

Bend the end of that wire over the back of the Peridot Heart and wrap it around the twist below a couple of times to secure it, trim off the excess wire and tuck in the edges with flat nose pliers

Step Four

Repeat Step 3 on each of the other wires until you have a 4 leaf shamrock shape. Make another 4 Shamrocks in the same manner as the first.

Step Five

Cut an approx 10" piece of beading thread, add a crimp bead followed by a jumpring and then fold the thread over feeding it back through the crimp bead trapping the jumpring. Secure it with Crimping Pliers and trim off any excess beading thread.

Step Six

Thread on the gemstones in the following order; 5 peridot Hearts, 1 Mint Pearl, 1 Pink Pearl, 1 Mint Pearl, 1 Shamrock, 1 Mint Pearl, 1 Pink Pearl, 1 Mint Pearl, 1 Shamrock, 1 Mint Pearl, 1 Pink Pearl, 1 Mint Pearl, 1 Shamrock, 1 Mint Pearl, 1 Pink Pearl, 1 Mint Pearl, 1 Shamrock, 1 Mint Pearl, 1 Pink Pearl, 1 Mint Pearl, 1 Shamrock, 1 Mint Pearl, 1 Pink Pearl, 1 Mint Pearl, 5 Peridot Hearts

Step Seven

Thread on another crimpbead and jumpring, secure it in the same way as you did in Step 5, then attach the toggle clasp to the jumprings and cover the crimps with crimp covers to finish the bracelet.
