Simple Turquoise Bracelet

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I am a bit preoccupied at the moment with Gabe and his leg. Truth be told - I'm exhausted - he is a very demanding patient at the moment and understandably grumpy. I will try to post as often as I can...


Today I'm going to share the easiest bracelet, ever.

I used some left over turquoise beads that I had from the Turquoise and red bracelet I made recently.

You will need:

beads
nylon line
medium sized silver chain link
crimps
charms and clasps


String your beads onto the nylon line and crimp a loop at each end of your desired length. 

I like to disguise my crimps so I threaded a silver bead over the crimp. 

Remember to add your clasp or toggle to one end of the bead section.



Open a link of the chain and attach to the loop from the beads. 


I also slotted a charm in for fun. 

Then add the other part of the clasp or toggle to the chain..


And that's it - simple and pretty...



Let me know what you think...

Take care

  5. Beautiful bracelet Nats, I am a big fan of turquoise too! What I love best about these sort of plugs is the fact you take great photos and explain so well how to make your own jewellery.
    So sorry that things have been so tough for you and your family.

    Take care

  6. LOL. At the Debbie-Doo's party the thumbnail caption says "Simple Turquoise Bra" ... and I thought okay, but it looks a bit flimsy for my bustline ...
