'Dark Forest' Hand Chain

Difficulty: Intermediate


Learn how to make this 'Dark Forest' Hand Chain using a Swarovski Crystal Mix.

Step 1

Cut approx. 20cm of wire. Thread the end through a crimp bead, create a loop around a jumpring and thread back through. Flatten the crimp bead with pliers or a crimper. Trim any excess wire.

Step 2

Thread a random selection of beads from the crystal mix onto the wire with rose gold spacer beads in between each crystal. About half way through the wire, thread on a 5mm jump ring.

Check the size of your bracelet and when big enough, repeat the crimping process in step one with the end of the wire. Attach a lobster clasp to the end jump ring.

Step 3

To create the link between the ring and the bracelet, take 4 eye pins. Thread 3 crystals of your choice onto the eye pins and connect all four together by trimming and looping each one around the next.

When you have a chain of four eyepins, connect one end to the jumpring in the centre of the bracelet using an 8mm Jumpring.  Attach the other end to the ring base using a jumpring and glue if needed.

Step 4

Glue the Swarovski Rivoli to the ring base and leave to dry.
