2 - 3 to 1 Links (we used the Pewter Beaded End Bar Link By TierraCast)
Soft Flex Beading Wire (cut to desired length, plus 2 inches for each strand)
Watch our exclusive video below for the Velvet Embrace Bracelet Inspiration Project which uses this technique!
Crimp one end of your Soft Flex beading wire (cut to desired length plus 2 inches) to the first loop of one of the 3 to 1 links.
String beads onto the Soft Flex until you have reached your desired length.
Crimp the other end of your Soft Flex to the first loop of the second 3 to 1 link.
Repeat steps 1 through 3 for each of the other loops of the 3 to 1 link.
Connect the single loop of the 3 to 1 link to one side of the clasp by attaching a jump ring.
One end of the piece is now finished.
Repeat step 5 to finish the other side of the piece.
