Materials:
2 pkgs. Swarovski Padparadscha Crystals, 4mm  (#16566) Qty:  
1 pkg.  Triangle Seed OP Lustered Cream, 11/0  (#T-1108) Qty:  
1 pkg.  Triangle Seed MT Suede, 11/0  (#T-1103) Qty:

2 pkgs. 1 1/5" Thin G/P Eye Pins, 24 gauge  (#50589) Qty:  

Directions:
Step 1:  Using wire Cutters cut a piece of bracelet wire which is one full circle plus 1" overlap.  Using a round nose pliers, bend one end of the wire circle into a loop, and close the loop tightly with your flat nose pliers. Repeat this entire step 1 time.

Step 2: Take one eye pin and string on the following:
 2 Triangle Seed OP Lustered Cream
 2 Triangle Seed MT Suede
 2 Seed LND Clear/Burnt Orange
 1 Swarovski Padparadscha Crystal
 2 Seed LND Clear/Burnt Orange
 2 Triangle Seed MT Suede
 2 Triangle Seed OP Lustered Cream
Using a flat nose pliers, bend the eye pin wire 90°.  Using a round nose pliers, bend this end into a loop, and close the circle/loop tightly with your flat nose pliers.  Repeat this entire step 39 times.

Step 3:  Take one of the bracelet wires from step 1 and string on the following:
 3 Seed LND Clear/Burnt Orange
 1 Eye Pin (from step 2)
 2 Seed LND Clear/Burnt Orange
 1 Eye Pin (from step 2)
Continue this pattern until all eye pins are attached to the bracelet wire.  Using wire cutters cut the bracelet wire to 3/16" beyond the last bead.  Using a round nose plier, bend the end back into a loop, and close the loop tightly with your flat nose pliers.

Step 4:  Take the other bracelet wires from step 1 and string on the following:
 3 Seed LND Clear/Burnt Orange
 1 Eye Pin, other end from step 3
 2 Seed LND Clear/Burnt Orange
 1 Eye Pin, other end from step 3
Continue this pattern until all the eye pins are on the bracelet wire.  Using wire cutters cut the bracelet wire to 3/16" beyond the last bead.  Using a round nose plier, bend the end back into a loop, and close the loop tightly with your flat nose pliers.  Enjoy!
