I have quite a few pieces in my jewelry making stash. I thought I should use some of my stash to make some lovely jewelry and not have to spend a dime. Sounds pretty good, don’t you think? There might be quite a few jewelry projects coming in the near future.
All you need to make this bracelet is some jump rings, beads with loops on each end, and a lobster claw. I like to buy things on really good deals, so most of my pieces were at least 50% off.
I alternated the smaller and larger pieces. Put 2 pieces on each jump ring before you close it and continue until you have the size bracelet you need. I talked about this in a previous post, but if you want the jump ring to keep it’s shape you need to open it by twisting it to the side to open and then twisting it back to close, never pull.
I added the lobster claw to the end by using a smaller jump ring.
I used a smaller jump ring on the other side of the bracelet for the lobster claw to attach too. And that’s it! It took about 10 minutes to make this adorable bracelet. I love the color! It’s perfect for my Summer wardrobe.
