Crystal and Pearl Bracelet

When you can't afford the April diamond birthstone, try this on for size: a quick, dressy crystal-and-pearl bracelet! 
Tip!
EDITOR’S TIP
To make sure that the bracelet lies flat, try not to cross the two wires when you’re stringing.

Crystal chaton montées have four holes for stringing, so this sparkling piece will lie flat when you wear it. 

MATERIALS

  • 5 8mm two-strand crystal chaton montées
  • 4–6 10mm round pearls
  • 24–28 4mm round pearls
  • 24–28 3mm bicone crystals
  • flexible beading wire, .012 or.013
  • 4 crimp beads
  • two-strand clasp
  • chainnose or crimping pliers
  • diagonal wire cutters
