How to Make a DIY Bracelet

Francesca Bracelet Instructions

  1. Cut (or separate using two pairs of pliers) the large double link chain into a 6 1/2” section.

  2. Attach (2) 6mm jump rings to each end of the chain.

  3. Using 6mm jump rings, attach a lobster claw clasp to one set of jump rings and attach an extender chain to the other set of jump rings.

  4. Make a wrapped loop bicone drop and attach the drop to the end of the extender chain.

  5. Cut (2) 10” lengths of beading wire.

  6. Using crimp tubes, attach each wire to a 6mm jump ring at one end of the double link chain.

  7. Thread (44) bicones onto each wire.

  8.  Weave the bicone strands through the chain links.

  9. Using crimp tubes, attach the beading wire strands to the 6mm jump rings at the end of the chain. If it’s too difficult to weave the loose strands of beads, try crimping the wire, leaving a small loop for the jump ring to fit though. Then weave the strands through the double link chain.

Another striking bracelet that can be warn anywhere with anything. Some of the designers whose work is highlighted and shared here are amazing in the ways they can design across styles to meet an array of tastes, while others such as the designer of this bracelet can create a bracelet that can go to a minor hockey game at six in the morning (or earlier), take your player for a second breakfast to celebrate, go to dance class with your daughter (after you change from that warm jacket and jeans of course), go shopping and antiquing in the afternoon with friends, and a night on the town with your husband and a couple of other couples - this bracelet can do it all and does.
