Gatsby Cuff Bracelet
Not all products are available for this project
This bracelet has been designed to fit wrist sizes of 15-17cm. You will need to use approx.1metre of elastic. (Don’t worry if you have plenty left over as we have overestimated the length).
You will need to start your bracelet by threading on a rondelle spacer bead first. Then follow the pattern below.
When you have completed this pattern you need to tie a double knot in the rondelle bead and take the two pieces and thread it through another rondelle in the opposite direction.
Follow the pattern as you did in step 1. When you come to thread on a rondelle you will need to thread through the rondelle, go around the rondelle, through the rondelle below and back through the original rondelle. It should look like the diagram below.
Continue to follow the pattern and replicate the process in step 3 for whenever you thread on a rondelle
When you have completed the 2 rows you will need to create 3 more rows of pearls and rondelles. Remember to double the elastic before starting a new row. For extra security add a dap of glue
Clip on your carriers as shown below
You have completed the cuff. You are now ready to start making the hand jewellery connector
To make the hand connector:
Thread a pearl on to an eyepin and attach to a jumpring. Attach that jumpring to a Swarovski Rivoli connector. On the other end of the Swarovski connector attach another jumpring along with another pearl on an eyepin.
Repeat step 1. You will now have 2 pieces. Connect these 2 pieces together by adding a jumpring to the 2 eyepins.
The 2 non-connected pieces now can be added to the clip on connectors (from the bracelet), You will now see your hand connector taking form.
Attach another jumpring to the end, then connect 2 of the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS silver plated filigrees.
Connect these 2 filgrees to the flower charm using 2 jumprings
Connect this follower charm to the ring base using a slightly larger jumpring.
Finally glue in all the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystals into their settings.
