Free instructions! Two-strand bracelet with Xuron 4 in 1 Crimper

Want to learn how to make this bracelet

using the Xuron 4 in 1 Crimper and CzechMates two-holed bricks?  Read on for a free PDF with all of the instructions!
This is a project I taught at the Make -n- Take event at the Art Glass and Bead Show in Madison, Wisconsin on March 27, 2015.  It's a fun show, and the Make -n- Take event is a blast!  It's a flurry of activity - six groups of up to 10 people rotating around the room, making a bunch of different projects.

Everyone loved this bracelet and the Xuron 4 in 1 Crimper.  Here's the crimper in action:

If you haven't read my review of the 4 in 1 Crimper yet, click here for all the details.

I talked with Abby from Xuron about the project a number of times, and we decided to make the instructions available to everyone.

The instructions include a full tutorial about how to use the tool as well as how to make the bracelet.  Here are a few of the other colors we made during the Make -n- Take:

The beads used are 4mm fire polish or bicones, 6mm fire polish or bicones, and CzechMates two-holed bricks.  You could use a toggle clasp with two loops, but it works just fine with a regular toggle clasp.

So, without further ado, here is the link to the instructions:  Two-strand bracelet PDF

If you're interested in purchasing the Xuron 4 in 1 Crimper or any of the other Xuron tools I carry, please visit my tools shop page.

I only have a few colors left of the kits:

They are available for purchase in my shop here.

For next year's Make -n- Take event, I'm planning on showcasing the Xuron Split Ring Pliers for a fun pendant using guitar picks.  Stay tuned!
