Retired - Tigers Eye Ladder Chain Bracelet

PROJECT B2172
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
In this design the bar chain provides the perfect ladder-like structure to show off these beautiful Tigers Eye gemstones.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a bracelet that is 6.5 inches. To adjust the length, simply modify the length of chain needed.
  1. Begin by stringing one tigers eye gemstone onto one eye pin. Make a simple wire loop. Set aside. Repeat this step five more times.
  2. Take the foot of chain, and open the center link between two bars. Open the link, the same way you would a jump ring. Bring the two ends of the length of chain together. Close the link.
  3. You should now have 7 bars on top and 7 bars on bottom.
  4. To one end, open one jump ring and attach one side of the magnetic clasp. Repeat on the other side.
  5. Take one eye pin with the tigers eye, open one loop, same as you would a jump ring, and attach it to the center link between two bars of chain. Close the loop. Repeat this for the bottom of this eye pin. (See photo for reference)
  6. You will repeat the above step for the remaining gemstones moving across the chain.
