Montana Ore Bracelet

PROJECT B8047
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Beginner
Organic textures and sapphire hues lend an earthy, elegant feel to this multi strand bracelet. A Zola Elements clustered quartz focal is paired with beaded link chain and finished with a three strand magnetic clasp.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 7 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, adjust the lengths of chain used on either side respectively. You can use an awl to widen the links of your beaded cable chain to fit onto the jump rings.
  1. You may want to start by watching the video: How to Properly Cut Gemstone Chain. This video offers helpful tips for cutting your beaded cable chain links for this project.
  2. Use flush cutters to cut six 2.75 inch lengths of beaded cable chain. Note: loose beads will come off of your chain as you cut the links, so measure an extra link or two to account for the loss of length when this happens.
  3. To attach the chain lengths from step 2 onto your Zola Elements clustered quartz focal: Use pliers to open a 4mm jump ring and slide on the end links of three of your chain lengths. Also slide on the loop on one side of the focal link. Close the jump ring. Repeat this step to attach three chains to the opposite side of the focal link.
  4. To attach your clasp: Open a jump ring and slide on the opposite end link on one of your chain lengths. Also slide on one of the loops of the three strand magnetic clasp. Close the jump ring. Repeat this process to attach the remaining two chains to this side of the clasp.
  5. Repeat step 4 to attach the other side of your clasp. Enjoy your bracelet!
