Easy Bracelet Tutorial


Bracelets are great gifts that can look really classy or fun. You can use any type of beads you want. To make a bracelet you need several tools.


Ingredients:
  • Chain
  • Clasp
  •  Flat Head Pins - about 25 depending on wrist size
  • Small Metal Circle
  • Beads
  • Needle Nose Plyers
  • Wire Cutter
 Start by measuring your chain. Cut and set aside.


For the beads you start with a pin. Slide the bead on and trim the top. You will have to experiment a bit with how much to snip. Then use your needle nose pliers to curve the tip into a circle.





Your finished product should look something like this:


Now make a bunch of these. To attach them to the chain just open the circle and slip it on the chain.



I put the beads on every third chain. To finish up put your small circle on one end and your claw clasp on the other end.



The finished bracelet should look a bit like this:




These basic skills can help you make a LOT of jewelry. You can make earrings, bracelets, anklets, or whatever you want. Be creative and try out a new skill!
