Determine the length of the shortest strand and cut a length of beading wire at least 6 inches longer. For each of the other stands cut the beading wire at least 2 inches longer.
In this project you would cut one each of 28, 30, 32, 34 and 36 inches.

Using your shortest length of beading wire start from the center and string 5 Apricot pearls, 6 amethyst pearls, 6 rosy pink pearls, 6 white pearls, 6 pink pearls, 6 Apricot pearls, 6 amethyst pearls and 4 rosy pink pearls. Repeat for the other side. Attach a bead stopper at each end to keep beads from coming off the beading wire.

String each strand the same but increase the number of beads at the each end by 2 keeping the color pattern in mind.

Attach each strand to the 5 strand clasp using the crimp tube and cover with a crimp cover. Check carefully that the strands are attached in the proper order.

4 strand Bracelet

Cut 4 lengths of beading wire 13 inches long. Layout and string the beads in a sequence that echoes the necklace. Attach to clasp in the same fashion as above.
