DIY Multi Strand Chain Summer Bracelet!!!

IMG_3993

Isn’t it really annoying to create jewels and to always have these small chain scraps that are not able to use them in any other project? I have to admit that I have a small collection of such scraps and I just find a way to use them again for a bracelet! Let’s create it together!

IMG_3972

Materials for Multi Strand Chain Bracelet:
Chain ( I have used three different types of chains)
– Jump Rings
Gold Toggle Clasp
– Head Pin
– Millefiori Bead
– Plier Set

IMG_3975

Step 1: First choose what chains are you going to use. I have used a gold plated chain, a turquoise and gold chain and a handmade beaded chain. Cut three pieces (one from each) in the same length.

IMG_3979

Use a jump ring in each end of every chain and connect them to a larger jump ring.

IMG_3981

Step 2: Finish the bracelet by using your favorite type of lobster (I have use a gold plated toggle clasp). The main body of your jewel is ready. You can enjoy it as it or add a small beautiful detail!

IMG_3982

Step 3: This is mandatory, but it will make your bracelet unique. Just use a Millefiori bead, pass it in the head pin and create a loop. Connect it with a jump ring with one of your chains!
