DIRECTIONS:

BRACELET (for a 6-1/2" bracelet):
1. Using eye pins, make (30) white glass bead links.
2. Using eye pins, make (18) mirror glass bead links
3. Lay out 3 rows of (10) white glass bead links.
4. Open a link in a white bead link and attach it to the top loop of one side of the 3-strand rod clasp.
5. Use a jump ring to connect the other end of that link to a mirror bead link and a white bead link. Using another jump ring, connect the other link of that white bead link to a mirror bead link and a white bead link, etc. until there is a total of ten white bead links and 9 mirror bead links. The mirror links will hang down between the white bead links.
6. Repeat step 4 to attach a white link to the middle loop of the same side of the 3-strand rod clasp.
7. Use a jump ring to connect the other end of that link to the mirror link hanging down from the row above, another mirror link, and a white link. Using another jump ring, connect the other link of that white link to the next mirror link hanging down from above, another mirror link, and a white link, etc. until there is a total of ten white bead links and 9 mirror bead links hanging down in that row. The mirror links will hang down between the white bead links.
8. Repeat step 4 to attach a white link to the bottom loop of the same side of the 3-strand rod clasp.
9. Use a jump ring to connect the other end of that link to the mirror link hanging down from the row above, and another white link. Continue this step until you have connected the 9 hanging mirror links and 10 white links.
10. Open the loops on the white links at the end of each row and connect them to the loops on the other side of the 3-strand rod clasp.
(*If a longer bracelet is desired, add 2 mirror links and 3 pearl links for each additional 1/2" of length.)

EARRINGS:
1. Cut (1) 1-1/8" length of chain, (1) 3/4" length of chain, and (1) 3/8" length of chain.
2. Slide a head pin through a white bead, slide the head pin through the end link of the 1 1/8” link of chain, and form a wrapped loop. Repeat this step with the 3/8" length of chain.
3. Slide a head pin through a mirror bead, slide the head pin through the end link of the 3/4" length of chain, and form a wrapped loop.
4. Open the loop at the bottom of one lever earring wire and slide on the top links of each chain with the longest chain at the back of the earring and the shortest chain on the front.
