Clamp the two wires together at one end.
String on one faceted bead.
Separate the wires and string 7 drop beads on each wire.
String both wires through a 6mm faceted bead, pushing against the drop beads already on the wire to compress and fan them out.
Then string on one oval bead, one button, one oval bead and one faceted bead.
Again separate the wires and string 7 drop beads on each wire.
Then string on another series: faceted, oval, button, oval, faceted.
Separate the wires and add drop beads.
Continue with this sequence until you have used all the beads.
Thread the 2 wires through the crimp and the toggle, then crimp.
Do the same thing at the other end, checking for fit and making sure the bracelet forms a circle.
Make the bracelet smaller by adding fewer drops in each section or add drops to each section if you need it longer.
Wear & enjoy!
