Supplies

  • Bracelet-bending pliers
  • Metal hole punch (you can use the screw-down or hand punch)
  • Beads you love
  • Chain (I used about 18 inches of chain)
  • Clasp – mine has three holes to space out your bead and chain strands
  • Beading wire, wire guards and crimps
  • Wire cutters and Jewelry pliers
  • Jump rings

Instructions

  1. Mark holes on your stamped bracelet blank and punch them.
  2. Use jump rings to attach about a 2-1/2 inch length of chain to each side.
  3. You can add more links according your measurements.
  4. Add beads, I added two strands. Use beads of various shapes, colors and patterns.
  5. Could use a metal spacer bead that helps tie the beads and chain together.             
  6. Now you add a crimp bead and feed the wire through the wire guard like in the photo below.  Hook the wire guard onto the hole in the clasp, and feed the wire around, and through the other hole.  Now, tuck the tail end of the wire into the crimp bead enclosing both ends of the wire – and crimp it shut with crimpers or jewelry pliers.

      7.   Now, you can string your beads.  Just feed the small end of the wire into the holes in your beads.  Bead a length of wire equal to your                     chains – and add a wire guard on the opposite end of the bracelet just as you did the first end.  Trim your excess wire to about an inch,                 and you can use your pliers to tuck the wire end into the beads.  Add as many bead strands as you like the looks of.  I added a clear                     strand and a light green one.       

You have just created a beautiful piece of jewellery. Can always qualify for a priceless gift to your loved ones!!
