I found this project originally on Cut Out and Keep, but I’ve tweaked it a bit. This is my version of the Pearl and Chain Bracelet.
What You’ll Need:
- Pearls, or any other beads. I used glass pearls.
- Fishing line
- Left over chains
- Black Satin Ribbon
- Large Jump Rings
- Crimping Beads
- Pliers, Needle Nose and Flat Nose.
- Wire Cutters
- A Cat that will assist you, optional
Have your cat help you string your pearls onto your fishing line. You can use a bracelet to compare sizes and make sure it’s not too big or too small.
Put a crimp bead on your line and feed the end back through it so you make a loop. Put the loop over the needle nose pliers and tighten. Using the flat pliers, flatten the crimp bead. Cut the fishing line, and do the same on the other end.
String your pears, and chains onto your jump ring. Cut your chain about the same size as the pearls and secure the ends with another jump ring, but on this end, before you close the ring, put a clasp on.
On either jump ring, tie a bow with your ribbon. In the original, the instructions stated that you should use the ribbon to fasten the bracelet. I thought it would be too hard to tie a ribbon on your own wrist and if it’s too loose, you may loose your bracelet! That’s why I added the clasp to the design.
