Let's Get Started

Step 1
Cut a 30cm length of tiger tail.  Feed a 2mm round crimper onto one end of the tiger tail followed by a 7mm jump ring.  Pass the end of the tiger tail back through the crimper leaving approximately 1cm of 'tail' after the the crimper.  Using the pliers, gently squash the crimper so that it secures the tiger tail around the jump ring.  Attach the jump ring to one of the loops of the diamante clasp.

Step 2
Feed the beads onto the tiger tail.  Check the length as you go.  When you have reached the desired length, feed a 2mm round crimper onto the tiger tail followed by a 7mm jump ring.  Pass the end of the tiger tail back through the crimper and the last two beads.  Pull the tiger tail taut (use your pliers if you need to get a better grip).  Using the pliers, gently squash the crimper so that it secures the tiger tail around the jump ring.  Cut off excess tiger tail.  Attach the jump ring to one of the loops of the diamante clasp.

Your Pearl and Diamante Bracelet is complete!
