  3. String pattern of two pearls, then one crystal until about 2/3" from the end of the beading wire (you should make sure to end with 2 pearls).
  4. String other end of beading wire through a crimp bead,through the other end of the toggle clasp & back through the crimp bead. Close the crimp bead.

(B) MEMORY WIRE BANGLE:

  1. Cut 4 lengths of memory wire. On 1st length of wire, randomly string beads, including spacer tubes.
  2. On 2nd length of wire, string beads randomly, matching the 1st length so beads and spacer tubes match up. Include additional spacer tubes for connecting next length of wire.
  3. Repeat the steps until all lengths of wire are connected with spacer tubes.

  2. To create a connector: slide a brown pearl onto an eyepin & form a simple loop.
  3. Attach brown pearl connector to an ear wire on 1 side & to beaded dangle from step 1 on other side. Repeat steps for 2nd earring.
