Bring back the 50s with this vintage inspired bracelet!
This pretty, vintage-look bracelet uses a few simple (beginner level) techniques to produce something just a little bit fancy. It uses a combination of beads and findings that are completely interchangeable, meaning the possibilities are literally limitless for design ideas!

  • How to make a beaded charm bracelet. Vintage Look Amethyst & Pearl Dangle Bracelet - Step 1
    Step 1

    The first (and most time consuming!) step is to make all of the dangles. We have used the coil technique for making these dangles, which is a very easy way of creating dangles that are secure and can not fall of your design. In this technique, you simply coil the headpin around you round noose pliers. You need to use relatively short headpins (about 25mm) and you’ll wrap about 2-4 times.
    We have made 9 of each for this bracelet which is to fit quite a small wrist.

    Repeat this process and join all of your connectors together. When you get to the end, attach a toggle clasp. We have also put dangles on the jump rings attaching the toggle. You may need to use an extra jump ring on the bar sections of your toggle to ensure it slips easily through the ‘O’ section.
