Desert Shores Bracelet

PROJECT B1037
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
Beautiful round turquoise pendant beads are delicately wrapped in silver plated wire in this statement bracelet. A perfect accessory for your favorite summer look.
Instructions
  1. Begin by watching the instructional video: How to Make a Wire Wrapped Gemstone Bracelet Link. This video will show you how to make the links for your bracelet.
  2. As demonstrated in the video, create four links for your bracelet using 24.5mm round turquoise pendant beads, and non tarnish silver plated craft wire in 18 and 24 gauge.
  3. Next, use a pair of medium bail making pliers (the 3mm side) and your 18 gauge wire to create ten jump rings. You can see how to make these in this video.
  4. Then, watch the video: How to Make a Hook and Bar Clasp With Craft Wire. Use the 18 gauge wire to create a hook and bar clasp as shown in the video.
  5. Now you will assemble your bracelet using the jump rings that you have created. Use two jump rings to connect each link to the next, one ring through each of the spiral sections at the ends of the links.
  6. Then use two jump rings to attach each end of the bracelet to one side of your clasp, again with one ring through each of the spiral sections at the ends of the links.
