Good morning! I have a back-to-basics post for you today with video. This one ifs for all of you who say, “you make it look so easy,” or “I wish I could make jewelry,” – I’m going to give you a tour of the basic tools, and show you that with just a couple components, you can make up this easy chain-and-connector bracelet. And it’s not just this bracelet, but you can use any style chain and connector to make something to suit any style!
You will only need a few supplies for this, including a small investment in a basic tools set if you don’t have them already. I’m going to link to these products from consumercrafts.com to make it easy to find, if you’re interested. (These aren’t affiliate links and I don’t make commission – buy wherever you like.) :)
- 3-pc jewelry tool set (long-nosed pliers, round-nosed pliers, and wire cutters)
- 6 inches of chain
- 1-inch connectors (mine say “love”)
- four 7mm jump rings
- one clasp
This video is under 10 minutes, to show you that even with me telling you all about the tools, you can still make this bracelet in 10 minutes or less. It’s a perfect beginner project.
As always – I’m here for questions. so ask away if you have any! I’d love to see what you make, if you use this technique for the first time!
