Thread the Illusion Cord through the hole of the crimp bead, then through one of the jump rings and back into the crimp bead as shown:
Secure the loop with Crimping Pliers
Keeping a firm grip on the thread to ensure that both parts of the thread stay within the crimp bead, use crimping pliers (or any jewellery making or household pliers will do) crush the crimp bead, first one way, then the other, to grip the Illusion Cord in place permanently.
The Illusion Cord should now stay in place when the thread is pulled. Once the thread is secure within the crushed crimp bead, cut off the excess thread leaving about 1 cm which can then be threaded back through the threaded beads.
Thread on the beads
Thread the beads onto the Illusion Cord in the following sequence:
1 x Seed bead
1 x Bicone Bead
1 x Seed bead
1 x Cube Bead
Repeat this pattern as many times as you need to so that the bracelet will wrap easily around your wrist.
Before securing the second end of the bracelet, check that the bracelet is the right size by measuring against your own wrist, bearing in mind that the trigger clasp still needs to be added. If the bracelet is too large, unthread some of the beads, if the bracelet is too small, you will need to add additional beads to the thread.
Secure the other end of the bracelet
To secure the second end of the bracelet, you will need to repeat Step 1, ensuring that you tighten the Illusion Cord so that there is no excess. Once the thread is secure within the crushed crimp bead, cut off the excess thread leaving about 1 cm, which can then be threaded back through the threaded beads.
Attach the clasp
Open the jump ring by using two pliers and twisting the jump ring in opposite directions, this will safely open the jump ring.
While the jump ring is still open loop on the trigger clasp and then close it using the pliers.
