November Bling

by: Pam Kearns

The colours say Fall, and you'll fall for the bling from the Swarovski crystals. These version is large (10 inches) - to make it smaller eliminate a component or two. Alternatively, add chain to one end and 'magically' transform the bracelet to become a necklace or an anklet.

(This is 10 inches, leave a rivoli off, and it is 9 inches, take off a donut as well and it is 8.5. For a 7.5 inch bracelet - use 4 rivolis and 3 donuts. Or choose a shorter clasp - this large hook adds nearly an inch.)

Change up the colour of the findings to Antique Copper for more of another Autumn variation, or simply personalize the colours to go with any "little black dress."

Using just a drop or two in each, glue the rivolis into the mounts; allow to dry.

For each donut, start a wirewrapped loop and attach to one stone mount; finish the wrap.

Thread onto the wire a daisy spacer, a donut crystal and another daisy spacer. Start another wrapped loop and attach another stone mount making sure it faces in the correct direction; finish the wrap.

Continue adding crystals and stone mounts, alternating the donut colours as shown in the photos. Add a jump ring to both ends of the bracelet and adding the hook clasp to one of the jump rings.
