Retired - Bohemian Rhapsody Bracelet

PROJECT B6003
Designer: Suki Song
Skill Level: Intermediate
This yoga-inspired gemstone chain bracelet is great for an every day, casual look, or can also be used to spice up your wardrobe with spiritual beads.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 6.25 inch bracelet. To make it larger, adjust the amount of gemstone chain accordingly. Also, you may want to purchase an additional inch or two of the gemstone chain, because you may lose some gemstones while making this bracelet.
  1. Before you begin, watch the video: How to Open and Close a Jump Ring, and the video: How to Cut a Gemstone Chain.
  2. Begin by cutting three 6 inch strands of gemstone chain. (You will have one inch left-over which you will disassemble to utilize later on.)
  3. Take one 6 inch length of gemstone chain, and using your chain-nose pliers, open up a gold-plated jump ring, slide it onto the last link on one end of your first gemstone chain length and also the top loop of one half of your strand-reducer clasp.
  4. Repeat this same process with the other end of that same gemstone chain length and the other half of your strand reducer clasp. Open and add a jump ring onto the last link on the other end of the chain length and the top loop on the second half of your strand reducer clasp.
  5. Repeat this same process and add your second and third gemstone chain lengths onto their respective loops on the strand reducer clasp using jump rings. See photo for placement assistance.
  6. Once all your gemstone chain lengths are attached, you will begin adding on your glazed ceramic charm dangles.
  7. Slide a hamsa hand bead onto a gold plated eye pin and using your round nose pliers, create a simple wire loop. Snip off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  8. Repeat the same process with your second hand hamsa bead and your two ohm beads.
  9. Now you will be using the last inch of gemstone chain. Carefully snip off each gemstone bead dangle making sure there are no cut links. You will need 4 turquoise bead dangles.
  10. Using your round nose pliers, open up the simple wire loop on your hamsa bead (how you would a jump ring) and slide on your first gemstone dangle and close.
  11. Repeat the process of adding on your gemstone dangles onto the simple wire loops and close.
  12. Next, lay your bracelet flat on your work space. You will now add the bead dangles onto your bracelet by opening up the simple wire loop at the top (with your pliers), sliding them onto the link on the gemstone chain and closing. I added the first hamsa bead at about the 2� mark and the second hamsa bead at the 4� mark of the top length of gemstone chain. Skip the center gemstone chain length. Onto the third gemstone chain length, add your ohm bead at the 1� mark and your second ohm bead at the 5� mark.
  13. Close your clasp. You�re done!
