"This pretty, vintage-look bracelet uses a few simple (beginner level) techniques to produce something just a little bit fancy. It uses a combination of beads and findings that are completely interchangeable, meaning the possibilities are literally limitless for design ideas! For example, we have used lovely natural Amethyst beads, freshwater pearls and cube-shaped crystals. We’ve also used antique silver look filigree connectors. But imagine if you used rustic wooden beads, an earthy Jasper chip (perhaps Picture Jasper or Tiger Eye) and Bronze connectors…. yup, I’m already feeling inspired!!"

Materials List

  • Banded Amethyst 8mm Round Beads
  • Peach Nugget Freshwater Pearls (we have used 6-7mm pearls)
  • Mauve Crystal Beads (we have used a 6mm cube, but anything 8mm or smaller would work!)
  • Metal Connectors (we have used a filigree connector).
  • Toggle Clasp
  • Small Jump Rings (5mm or 6mm will work)
  • 25mm Headpins or ballpins

Instructions

  1. The first (and most time consuming!) step is to make all of the dangles. We have used the coil technique for making these dangles, which is a very easy way of creating dangles that are secure and can not fall of your design. In this technique, you simply coil the headpin around you round noose pliers. You need to use relatively short headpins (about 25mm) and you’ll wrap about 2-4 times. We have made 9 of each for this bracelet which is to fit quite a small wrist.

  2. Take your jump ring and attach three of the dangles (one of each bead type).

  3. Attach two of the connectors together using this jump ring.

  4. Repeat this process and join all of your connectors together. When you get to the end, attach a toggle clasp. We have also put dangles on the jump rings attaching the toggle. You may need to use an extra jump ring on the bar sections of your toggle to ensure it slips easily through the ‘O’ section.
