Fancy floral bracelet

String floral slider components for bracelets that bloom.
I bought the antique-looking flower components for these cuffs from Mobile-Boutique; they offer many options in slider beads. With their sparkly crystal and rhinestone embellishments, the earth-toned pieces make a beautiful centerpiece. Finish with a fold-over magnetic clasp for a unique piece with a vintage feel.

Floral bracelet_4
4. Repeat step 3, substituting color B pearls for the color As. String pearls until the strands are within 1 in. (2.5 cm) of the finished length (Front and center, below). 
Floral bracelet_5
5. On one side, over both wires, string a fold-over clasp. On one wire, string a crimp bead. With the other wire, go through the crimp bead from the opposite direction. Repeat on the other side. Check the fit and add or remove beads if necessary. Flatten the crimp beads and trim the excess wire.
FRONT AND CENTER
String enough pearls so your bracelet fits comfortably, but don’t add too many; the idea is to keep the flower components at the top of your wrist.
