The second photo is a 3 strand version of this bracelet!
A few tips about the cup chain  I have used.
I use exclusively Swaravski Elements cup chain. In the sample I used PP28 size in silver with clear crystals.
The pattern says to use PP32, this would mean a small adjustemnt to the design, you may need to add a size 11 or size 15 seed bead to each side of the bicone crystal when joining.
For PP28 cup chain, it measures about 5 cups to the inch when stretched open.
The important thing when finding the rigtht size of cup chain is that you can hold a line of 3 size 15 seed beads between the cups. A size smaller that PP28 will not work.
We sell the cup chain that I have used in the samples in my retail shop, you can call us 905-954-1327 to order. It is sold by the inch. we are in canada
Have fun with this! the glow from Swarovski cup chain is like no other!
