Instructions

Step 1: Cut a 20" length of .024 diameter Satin Silver Soft Flex Wire and attach a bead stopper to one end. String one of each bead on the wire in the following order: sterling silver, Tiger Eye, and Fire Agate.

Step 2: Continue adding beads by alternating Fire Agate and Tiger Eye until you have a total of 22 Fire Agate and 23 Tiger Eye beads. Then string a sterling silver bead and add a bead stopper to the end of the wire to hold all the beads in place until you are ready to add the clasp.

Step 3: Remove a bead stopper from one of the ends of the wire and string a 2x2mm silver filled crimp tube, then string half of the sterling silver clasp. Take the end of the wire and string it back through the crimp tube and crimp using the crimping pliers. Click here for step by step instructions on how to crimp. Next use the cutters and trim the excess wire flush to the crimp tube making sure not to cut the side of the wire with the stringed beads.

Step 4: Remove the bead stopper from the other end of the wire and string a 2x2mm silver filled crimp tube and the other half of the clasp. Take the end of the wire and string it back through the crimp tube and crimp using the crimping pliers. Use the cutters and trim the excess wire flush to the crimp tube.
