DIY Fashion: Infinity Bracelet with Beaded Jump Ring ChainSaturday, December 07, 2013
Happy December!!! Christmas is less than a month away, can you believe it? Today's DIY is one that would make a totally awesome Christmas gift, in my humble opinion. What's best is that if you buy quality materials and take your time, your project won't look homemade!
The first step is to bead your jump rings. At this stage, you will be beading half of the jump rings you will be using for your bracelet. This part is simple: open your jump ring, slip on a bead, and close the jump ring. This will make the remainder of your bracelet making a lot simpler.
Yes I'm a PC user ;)
Once you've beaded enough jump rings, it's time to start making your bracelet! Open a jump ring, and insert one beaded jump ring, one side of the infinity charm, and two beads, then close the jump ring. Repeat on the other side of the infinity charm.
Open another empty jump ring, slip on two beads, a beaded jump ring, and then attach to one of the jump rings at the end of the bracelet. Repeat on the other side.
Continue the previous step until your bracelet is at its desired length!
If you like the look of the bracelet at this point, then you can stop here. Open a jump ring, slip on two beads and the toggle, and attach to one end of the bracelet. Open another jump ring, slip on two beads and the clasp, and attach to the other end of the bracelet!
If you would like to make your bracelet look a bit chunkier like I did, then create a second beaded jump ring chain alongside the first one you made. Follow the exact same steps, and when attaching the toggle and clasp closure, make sure that you insert both chains into the jump ring that attaches the bracelet to the closure.
