Another week, another ring-bracelet DIY. I truly am obsessed, I know… That being said, the good thing is, is that I don’t need to continuously wax lyrically on and on about my love for these simple DIY accessories. All I need to do is cover the bases: two-in-one? Check! Gorgeous? Check! Edgy? Check! Incredibly easy to make? Check! There you are- all you need to know about why I love this particular DIY and why you’ll love it too!
What you need:
- 8 small metal spikes – make sure they have loops at the top
- Thin gold chain – about 15″
- 3 small gold jump rings
- 10 medium gold jump rings
- 1 gold lobster clasp
- Tightly measure your wrist and cut the chain just a big longer – this will form the bracelet section.
- Tightly loop the end of the chain around your middle finger and let it drop down the back of your hand. Cut it just a little bit below where the chain “meets” your wrist.
- Hook the lobster clasp onto one end of the bracelet section using a small jump ring. Hook two medium jump rings at the other end.
- Hook a small jump ring through the end of the ring section chain. Tightly loop the chain around your middle finger and attach the jump ring back on the chain. This will form the “ring”.
- Evenly measure out where you want to attach the spikes – mine are about 3-4 links apart.
- Use the medium jump rings to attach the spikes to the chain with the ring at one end.
- Using a small jump ring, attach the ring section to the middle of the bracelet section.
And there it is – so unbelievably easy I can’t quite believe how it looks so good. The spikes make it edgy and exciting but using a thin gold chain makes sure it retains a delicate and girly element (and makes it light so you don’t feel like your hand is being weighed down). I love love love this piece of jewellery and I’m so pleased the way it turned out! So, what are you waiting for? Go try it for yourself, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
