I wanted to try out the 1-Step Looper Plier and decided to use it to create dangles on this bracelet using the Swarovski Pearls in Crystal Iridescent Light Blue. They go very well with purple shades.
A wonderful play of blue and purple colors create a Cotton Candy Daydream in this fun bracelet. Cheri easily create a variety of dangles using the 1-Step Looper pliers to finish each dangle with a simple loop. This tool made the looping go even faster, so she could focus on adding the dangles to her chain. You can see more ideas for using 1-Step Looper pliers in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Create beaded dangles for your links with the following beads. Remember to finish each dangle with a simple loop using the 1-Step Looper pliers:
String a Swarovski 6mm XILION Bicone in Tanzanite AB onto a 2-inch antique silver-plated 2mm ball end head pin. Finish with a simple loop. Repeat six times for a total of seven dangles.
String a Swarovski 8mm round pearl in Crystal Iridescent Light Blue onto a head pin. Make a simple loop. Repeat seven times for a total of eight dangles.
String a Swarovski 4mm XILION Bicone in Purple Velvet AB onto a head pin. Make a simple loop. Repeat 12 times for a total of 13 dangles.
String a Swarovski 6mm round pearl in Crystal Iridescent Light Blue onto a head pin, followed by a 7mm antique pewter doodles and daisy bead cap. Make a simple loop. Repeat three times for a total of four dangles.
String a Swarovski 6mm faceted round in Purple Velvet onto a head pin. Make a simple loop. Repeat five times for a total of six dangles.
String a Swarovski 10mm round pearl in Crystal Iridescent Light Blue onto a head pin, followed by a 10mm antique pewter mini hearts bead cap. Make a simple loop. Repeat two times for a total of three dangles.
Cut a length of 8.5mm silver-plated brass textured double cable chain approximately seven inches long, or however long desired for your wrist size. Position the chain on a Chain Stä.
Add your dangles to the chain using a 6mm antique silver-plated 18 gauge open jump ring for each. We used the three 10mm pearls toward the center of the bracelet, with two of the 6mm pearls with bead cap to each side. We used the other dangles to fill in the spaces between. Place the beads in any pattern that is pleasing to you.
Attach a 15x8mm antique silver-plated trigger clasp to one end of your bracelet by opening the link at the end of the chain. Close the link once your clasp is in place. Make sure the other end of your bracelet features only one link. You will use this link to attach your clasp.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
