Tip: The Oasis Stitch-in Links are two sided. Be sure to match sides when stringing the bracelet.

Steps

  1. Cut a 20" piece of beading wire.
  2. Thread one end through one loop of an oasis link. String on one 3mm crystal, one disk spacer and one 3mm crystal, then thread end through second link loop. Center beading wire.
  3. String one 3mm round bead onto each wire.
  4. On one side of the wire string one 4mm crystal bead, one side of one Calla bead, one 4mm crystal, one disk spacer, and one 3mm crystal. Repeat on second side of wire.
  5. Hold both wire ends together and string on one 3mm round bead, one 3mm crystal, one leaf bead, one 3mm crystal and one 3mm round bead.
  6. Separate wire ends. On one side string one 3mm crystal and one disk bead. Repeat on second side.
  7. Repeat Steps 4-6 twice.
