Black Multistrand Bracelet

This sparkly, reflective bracelet will go great with many outfits, and add that touch of shine you wanted. 
Materials: 4mm faceted rounds, bead caps, headpins, jump rings, beading wire, crimp beads, clasp, bent nose pliers, round nose pliers, and wire cutters
Cut a piece of beading wire several inches longer than your wrist. Thread a crimp bead, a jump ring, and then thread the wire back through the crimp bead. Pinch the crimp bead shut with the bent nose pliers. 
Begin threading beads, hiding the tail as you go. 
When you have enough beads for the length of your wrist, finish the strand off with a crimp bead and jump ring, like at the begininning. Thread the tail back through the beads. 
Make three more strands this way. 
Attach a headpin to the jump ring. 
Thread the bead cap on, bendthe eyepin where the top of the bead cap is, trim the excess, and form a loop. Before closing the loop, attach the clasp. 
Repeat on the other side to finish it off. 
All finished!
I hope you enjoy this shiny bracelet!
Xoxo, Alyssa
