One of the things I love crafting in my spare time is jewellery. So for this DIY I thought I would show you how to create this beautiful delicate bracelet.
These are the supplies you will need:
- gemstone beads (I chose Pyrite, I love its antique gold colour)
- a finding (putting little dangles on bracelets adds a bit of whimsy)
- lobster clasp
- 3 jumprings
- jewellery wire
- chain cut into two sections (cut the length according to your wrist)
- pliers and wire cutters
Step 1: Take your rolling pliers and make a loop on one end of the piece of jewellery wire
Step 2: Link one end of one of the pieces of chain through the loop
Step 3: Close the loop using your point nose pliers
Step 4: Thread beads onto jewellery wire
Step 5: Loop the other end of the wire once all the beads are on (trim excess of first if necessary). Repeat steps 2 + 3 with the other piece of chain
Step 6: Using one jumpring attach the lobster clasp to the end of one of the pieces of chain
Step 7: Using another jumpring and attach it to the end of the opposite piece of chain. Close the ends of the jumpring together as this will act as the loop for your clasp to close on.
Step 8: Attach the last jumpring to the finding and then to the previous jumpring. Your bracelet should look something like this...
I hope you enjoy making your own little bracelet. Try it with different colour and size stones. And dont be afraid to wear all your bracelets at once...
