Step 1

Begin by cutting a length of chain to the size of your wrist (for a snug fit) and laying it out on your bead matt.


Step 2

Create connectors with the plooper or round nose pliers, eye pins and beads. Lay them on the matt next to the chain along with two spacers in your chosen order. Connect all of your connectors and spacer rings together using jump rings. Ensure that this newly created string is the same length as the chain.

Step 3

Connect all of your connectors together using the jump rings, alternating between the 2 sizes of rings. Ensure that this newly created string is roughly the same length as the chain.

Step 4

Using a jump ring, connect one end of the chain and one end of the string just made to a spacer ring. Repeat the other end. Using another jump ring, add a lobster clasp to one end.


Step 5

Create a charm for the opposite end by creating a connector with a bead of your choice.

Again, using jump rings, attach one side to the ring at the end of the bracelet and the other to the flower charm.
