Retired - Hopeless Romantic Bracelet

Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
This multi-strand bracelet is made from beaded chain that looks like it took you hours to make - but it's actually quite quick and easy to assemble.

  1. Before you begin, measure your wrist and decide how long you'd like your bracelet to be. The clasp will add just a bit over an inch to your finished measurement.
  2. Subtract an inch from your desired bracelet length to account for the clasp. The resulting number is the length that you need for your chains.
  3. Measure two pieces of Czech glass white pearl on black link beaded chain. Instead of cutting the chain, you can use a pair of chain nosed pliers to open the links and remove the excess.
  4. Next you will need to measure three pieces of Czech glass jet bead mix on black links beaded chain. Since the beads on this chain are different sizes, you may need to move one or two beads down from the end of the chain to get the measurement that you want. Just remove any extra beads.
  5. Open the last links on your lengths of chain and use them to attach the chains to a pair of antique silver plated 5 strand reducers. Put the jet beaded chains on the outsides and the center, with the pearl beaded chains between them. Then make sure all of your links are securely closed.
  6. Use a rhodium plated pewter 6mm, 20 gauge oval jump ring to attach one side of a antique silver plated toggle clasp to one of the strand reducers. Repeat with a second jump ring to attach the other side of the toggle to the other strand reducer.
