Bracelet 003


Level of difficulty: ♥♥

This is a great project for chainmail beginners. Below are the tools and supplies that you will need for this bracelet.

Tools:
2x Chain-nose plier

Materials:
1 x Lobster Claw Clasp
72 x 8mm silver jump rings
2 x 6mm silver jump rings
18 x 6mm round fresh-water pearls

Directions:
I used 6mm fresh water pearls, and 8mm jump rings to create this chainmail bracelet. You can also try this project with larger round beads of any kind, with jump rings being 2mm larger than the size of the beads. I want a simple and elegant look, so I only used the pale green fresh water pearls that I have on hand. I think the even sized Swarovski crystal pearls or the round crystals will look very nice, too!

This is beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing work. I am going to try to make one because I just love it, it is so feminine! But it is very intimidating for me. Thanks again :)

Great bracelet! There are so many things you could do with it... I can't wait to try it out for myself. I agree with Blue Stone of Orcas Island, though: I looks intimidating!

I tried it and after a little fumbling, I was successful! Just don't use bicones- they'll fall out! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24255357
