I’m back! I had a lovely little staycation over the long weekend we had here in Hong Kong – thank goodness that silly Typhoon didn’t hamper my plans. I think most of my fellow Hong Kongers would agree – it ended up being quite a hot & sunny few days, I hope that wherever you are in the world; you had as lovely a weekend as I did. I thought I’d start off the first week of July with this sweet little DIY project. It’s girly, it’s sugary-sweet, it’s summery, it’s simple – what more could you want?
What you need:
- 2 pieces of 0.5mm jewellery wire (length will depend on what size of beads you use)
- 5 pairs of different coloured glass beads
- 8 ring links
- 4 lengths of gold chain (cut to fit the width of your wrist incl. the beads)
- 1 Metal clasp
- 2 Pliers
- Cut each length of jewellery wire to about 2″ in length (this will depend on the size of your beads but mine are quite wide so 2″ should be enough)
- Bend one end of the wire over to form a loop, hold the loop with one plier and using the other, twist the loop so it is securely twisted around the length of wire. Repeat with the other length of wire. **Leave one end of each length of wire straight
- Thread the beads onto the wire. Repeat with the other wire, make sure the beads are in the same order.
- Form a loop and twist the ends of each wire to secure the beads onto the wire.
- Hook a ring link onto one loop and attach one end of one of the chains. Repeat with the remaining 3 loops and 3 chains.
- Hook a ring link through the ends of two of the chains. Repeat with the other side.
- On one side, hook the metal clasp onto the ring link.
- On the other side, hook the remaining ring links (in case the bracelet needs to be adjusted in size)
