Retired - Charisma Wrist-to-Ring Bracelet

PROJECT B8020
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
The wrist-to-ring bracelet is fashioned after a style of traditional Indian wedding jewelry called Hath Panja. This piece features a delicate gold twist pendant with ready-to-use wire wrapped gemstone chain. Sparkling micro faceted garnet, quartz, and citrine adorn the hand from wrist to finger.
Instructions
This bracelet measures 7.5 inches around the wrist and 4.25 inches over the back of the hand. The ring is size 11. To modify the size of any portion of the piece, adjust the number of wire wrapped beads and/or jump rings in each section respectively. I have accounted for 3 extra inches of chain due to links cut in the design process.
  1. Please watch our video: How to Make the Betrothed Wrist-to-Ring Bracelet. Applying what you have learned in the video, begin by using flush cutters to cut a 6.25 inch section of chain for the wrist portion of your bracelet. Make sure you choose a portion of chain that consists of one pailette on each end and one pailette in the center (see photo for reference).
  2. To attach your clasp, use pliers to open a jump ring. Slide on the last hole of one of the pailettes at the end of your chain, and also slide on the loop of your hook clasp. Close the jump ring. Repeat this process on the opposite side of your chain to attach the eye of your clasp.
  3. To make the overhand portion of your bracelet, begin by cutting two lengths of chain that consist of three wrapped stones each (approximately 3/4 inch). Connect one of these 3-stone sections of chain to the center pailette of your bracelet as follows: open a jump ring, slide on the end link of your 3-stone section, and also slide on the center pailette of your bracelet via one side hole, next to the pre-existing wrapped wire loop on the pailette (see photo for reference). Repeat this process to connect the other 3-stone section of the chain the second hole of the same center pailette.
  4. Open another jump ring, and slide on both of the free-hanging ends of the 3-stone sections you just attached. Then slide on the loop of your gold twist pendant link that faces cross-ways to the link (see photo for reference). Close the jump ring.
  5. Using flush cutters, cut a length of chain that consists of 5 wire wrapped stones (approximately 1.5 inches). Open a jump ring, and slide one end wrap of the chain. Also slide on the other loop of your gold twist pendant link. Close the jump ring.
  6. Next, attach a single pailette to your section of 5 wire wrapped stones from the above step as follows: use flush cutters to cut the wrapped wire loops off of each side of one pailette. Open a jump ring and slide on one hole of the pailette. Also slide on the free-hanging end wrap of your section of 5 wire wrapped stones. Close the jump ring.
  7. To make the ring portion of your bracelet, use flush cutters to cut two sections of 3 wire wrapped stones.
  8. Open a jump ring and slide on the opposite hole of the pailette you just attached. Close the jump ring.
  9. Open another jump ring and slide on the end loops of both of your sections of 3 wire wrapped stones. Also slide on the jump ring you just attached. Close the jump ring.
  10. Now close up the ring portion of your bracelet by connecting 10 jump rings to create a chain to fit the underside of the finger, attaching the two lengths of gemstone chain. Enjoy your bracelet!
