Fallen Twig Vintage Bracelet
A few weeks ago we posted an inspirational color website on our Facebook page, Design Seeds. I have to admit, this combination partially came from there. The chocolate finish of Vintage Brass is so beautiful with Bronze and Silver Pearls, Sherry Melons, African Copper Beads and Matte Terra Pony Beads. The clasp is definitely eye-catching and so easy to assemble. Perfect for the fall season, the finished length of the bracelet measures approximately 7.5 inches.-Brandi, Customer Service

Step 1. Separate each style of Chain into 3 individual pieces measuring approximately 3 ¼ inches each. You do not need to cut this Chain as each link is easily twisted open with pliers. You should have 6 total strands of Chain.
Step 2. Twist open a Jump Ring and slide each end link of Chain onto it. Repeat on the other end.
Step 3. Onto an Eye Pin, thread on Bronze Pearl, one Pony, one Melon, one Pony and one Bronze Pearl. Form a simple loop above the Pearl by bending the wire 90 degrees with Flat Nose Pliers. Trim the excess with Side Cutters to leave 3/8 inch behind, then curl this into a tight loop with Round Nose Pliers. Repeat this sequence again with one more Eye Pin.
Step 4. Onto an Eye Pin, thread one Silver Pearl, one Copper Round, one Pony, one Silver Pearl, one Copper Round and one Pony. Form a simple loop above the Pony and repeat this sequence again with one more Eye Pin.
Step 5. Lay out the beaded Eye Pins and attach them by their loops creating two rows. I used opposites for each row. Twist open a Jump Ring and slide it through both loops on one end of the Eye Pins, twist the Jump Ring closed. Twist open and attach two more Jump Rings to this same side.
Step 6. Cut a piece of wire measuring approximately 4 inches. Fold it in half and pull it centered on the last Jump Ring from above. Take the Twig Bar and start wrapping the wire around tightly to create part of the unique toggle clasp.
Step 7. Twist open a Jump Ring and slide it through the loops on the beaded Eye Pins. Before twisting closed, slide it through all 6 end links of Chain.
Step 8. Twist open a Jump Ring and slide it through the hole in the Bamboo Charm and through the center Jump Ring that connects the Chain and beaded Eye Pins. Twist the Jump Ring closed.
Step 9. Take an Eye Pin and thread 16 Pony Beads onto it. Form a simple loop on the end above the last Pony Bead. Bend the Eye Pin gently around to form a circular shape. Twist open a Jump Ring and slide it through all 6 end links of Chain. Before twisting closed, slide each loop from the beaded Eye Pin onto it. This will create the other portion of the clasp. Enjoy!
