I love how the charms move when you wear a charm bracelet but for this one I wanted to incorporate beads too.

Here’s what I’m using :

-Aluminium chain
-A few glass beads
-A lobster clasp
-2 metallic beads
-Jumprings
-Headpins
-Jewelry stringing wire
-crimp beads
-Various beach themed charms and beads _DSC0398First choose the charms you want to use and add jumprings to them. If you use any beads add headpins and jumpring._DSC0399Measure your wrist and add a couple of cm to it. Cut a piece of chain approximately half that size and add the lobster clasp._DSC0400edited

Now using crimp beads, attach the chain to a piece of stringing wire.

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!

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.

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

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!

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!

Make Jewelry with Handmade Glass Beads

Handmade Glass Beads

Faceted abacus glass beads – one of our best sellers. They look pretty, right? Just like Austrian crystals.

As one of the most essential materials for jewelry making, glass beads are always popular among jewelry makers. Then, what can we do with these handmade faceted glass beads? Let’s see some designs from our customer Надежда, I bet her designs will inspire you for your own DIYs.

Beaded bangle

A beaded bangle made with memory wire, abacus glass beads, and various kinds of other beads, looks really cool and kind of bohemian! If you only used faceted glass beads, the bangle will be dull, but once combined with other beads, it becomes fabulous.

To be honest, this beaded bracelet is quite simple in design. However, I still have to admit it’s cute. The arrangement of beads is very impressive and this bracelet is great for jewelry making beginners.

Cluster bracelet

To make a cluster bracelet, you must acquire some basic jewelry making skills. You need to know how to make bead links with beads and pins, and how to add those links to a chain. It may take your time, but I think the crafting procedure will make you happy.

Wow! I think nobody can say this jewelry set is not beautiful. They are so chic! The arrangement of flat round beads is very delicate, and the abacus glass beads make the whole jewelry set more unique and impressive.

As you can see from the previous jewelry, I think the best way to make accessories with abacus glass beads is to use them together with other beads. After all, diversification can make things more interesting. Do you agree with me?

Beaded and Leather Cord Bracelets

Beaded bracelets are very popular! How about adding some leather cord in an unexpected way?

Beaded and Leather Cord Bracelets

Here’s what you’ll need:
-some beads in size and color of your choice (try to use some that are not very big for your cord)
-braided leather cord
-wax cord
-cord endings
-jumprings
-lobster clasp
Beaded and Leather Cord Bracelets

Start by cutting a piece of the leather cord that fits your wrist. Now take the waxed cord and make a double loop like you see in the picture. We are placing the beads in the center of the bracelet.

Wrap the waxed cord 3 or four times around the leather and thread a bead
