I just love the sparkle and beauty of diamond bracelets but being the mom of 5 children, I most likely never be able to afford one. Rhinestone Montees offer a cheaper alternative with maximum sparkle. For this project I used:
38 - 16ss Crystal Swarovski Rose Montees
Beadalon wire .015 thick about 22 inches long
Jump rings 2 - 4mm and 1- 6mm
Begin by threading a jump ring through the wire and place it so that it is at the halfway point. Then thread each end of the wire into the channels in the back of the rose montee so that the wire crosses in the back. Pull the wires taut so that the rose montee is flush with the jump ring. Continue threading rose montees pulling taut so that each one is flush with the one before until your bracelet measures about 7 inches. (Standard size bracelets are 7.5 inches long)
Thread both ends through a crimp bead, then jump ring , back through the crimp bead and then through opposite channels in the rose montee. Pull the wire until findings are flush with the rose montee and then crimp your bead. Cut off any excess wire.
Slip this beautiful bracelet on whenever you want to impress and shine!
