So are you ready to learn how to make these babies?
My friends and I have been on a bracelet kick lately, so this was just one more to add to the bangles adorning our arms. I wasn’t lying when I said they are easy.
Here’s what you need:
- embroidery thread
- crimping tool
- rhinestone chain (found at Wal-Mart)
- jump rings
- alligator clasps
Take your rhinestone chain out of the package. The chain I got at Wal-Mart came with these little brackets for you to secure the chain in. It has little prongs that you push down over the top. Do this.
Put an alligator clasp on a jump ring. You can see that I used a slightly oversized one. I think it’s easier to manage that way.
Attach your rhinestone chain, regular chain, and embroidery thread to the jump ring. For my embroidery thread, I just cut three loooong pieces, then doubled it in half and pulled it through the loop around the jump ring, giving me six threads in that part of my braid. Does that make sense?
I used a straight pin to secure the clasp and jump ring while I was braiding. When you get to where you want to end, attach your chains to another jump ring, as well as knot your embroidery thread around the jump ring.
And that’s it!
It’s so easy, you can whip another one real quick, too. That’s what I did!
I decided to make a couple of plain rhinestone bracelets to go with all my other bracelets, too.
Combine your new bracelet with some of your other bracelets, and make a statement!
I’m loving the different styles and colors of bracelets and cuffs, aren’t you?
Do you think I have a career in hand/forearm modeling?
Probably not, but I still feel pretty stylish.
What color are you going to make first?
