Posted by Eureka! Beads on 20th Mar 2019

Featuring black glass crystal beads and golden coloured findings, this elegant charm bracelet is great practice for turning loops and joining components with jump rings.

MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • 12 x 50mm eye pins
  • 44 x 3mm plain metal beads
  • 12 x 8mm round glass crystal beads
  • 22 x 50mm head pins
  • 22 x 6mm bicone glass crystal beads
  • 13 x 6mm strong jump rings
  • 1 parrot clasp

TOOLS REQUIRED

  • 2 pairs of Crimping Pliers
  • Twirly Wirlie Pliers
  • Wire Cutters

INSTRUCTIONS

Take an eye pin and thread up with:

  • a plain metal ball
  • an 8mm round glass crystal bead
  • a plain metal ball

Leaving a space of 10mm, cut the excess off the eye pin. Twirl the end using your twirly wirlies. Repeat with all of the 8mm round glass crystal beads (so that you have 12 altogether). Put aside.

Pick up one of the headpins and thread up with:

  • a plain metal ball
  • a 6mm bicone glass crystal bead
  • a plain metal ball

Leaving a space of 10mm, cut the excess off the head pin. Twirl the end using your twirly wirlies. Repeat with all of the 6mm bicone glass crystal beads (so that you have 22 altogether). Put aside.

Open up one of the jump rings and thread onto it:

  • one of the 8mm round crystal eye pins
  • two of the 6mm bicone head pins
  • another 8mm round crystal eye pin

Close the ring securely. Open up another jump ring and thread it through the other end of one of the eye pins from your first set. Then thread on:

  • two of the 6mm bicone head pins
  • another 8mm round crystal eye pin

Close securely. Repeat this process until you have used up all your pieces. On both ends you should finish with an 8mm round glass crystal eye pin.

Open up one of the jump rings (as they are quite strong, you will need to use 2 sets of pliers) and thread on the parrot clasp. Thread through one of the eye pin loops on the end of your chain bracelet. Close the jump ring securely. Open up another jump ring and thread onto the other end of your chain bracelet and close securely. Your bracelet is now ready to wear!
