Custom Made Jewelry
for the ANIMAL in YOU
Make sure that you open your jump rings properly. Opening them the wrong way will distort the ring and cause it to break prematurely.
Once you have opened jump rings, and your beads picked out, it's a simple matter to put together the following bracelet.
The trick here is that the larger beads (represented here as the blue beads) must have a hole big enough to fit two jump rings through. The smaller beads (represented as red) can have a hole that fits snugly over a single thickness of jump ring.
Continue extending the design until you have enough to use for a bracelet. It also makes a nice choker.
Finish off the piece by adding a suitable clasp to the ends. The type of clasp you choose will depend on whether you want this to be a bracelet, choker, necklace, ankle bracelet, or really long earrings (nose chain, anyone??).
