Diamond beads silver bracelet handmade
Here is the list of materials you will need to follow the steps of this tutorial:
- Rough diamond beads (pink in this tutorial but can be another color)
- Silver chain (7 inches)
- Silver wire gauge 30 (2/3 inches)
- Silver beads
- Silver clasps
- A ruler
- Cutting pliers
- Round nose pliers
- Flat jaws pliers
The first step is to prepare all components for your project.
Beads, wire, chain, and clasps used for this DIY making tutorial
First, we need to cut two lengths (3,5 inches long each) of silver chain with the cutting pliers.
If you are not sure about the length needed, you can always take longer and cut it at the good length at the end of the tutorial.
The most "difficult" step of this project is to join the silver chain with the silver wire.
For that purpose, we use the round nose plier to make a loop with the silver wire.
Then, we can join the chain and the wire.
Now we use the flat jaws plier to twist the silver wire around himself so to close the loop (2 turns are enough).
Then we use the cutting pliers to cut the remaining length of wire.
Cutting the silver wire after joining it to the silver chain
Then we set the diamond beads on the silver wire.
After mounting the diamond beads, we mount the silver beads and make another loop with the silver wire.
Then we join once again the silver wire with the second silver chain we had cut at the first step.
We twist the silver wire (2 turns).
And then cut the excess of silver wire with the cutting pliers.
Our bracelet is almost ready, still having to fix the clasps.
This is now when we can check the length of the bracelet and cut off some length if necessary.
Then, the silver ring of the clasp is inserted in the last mesh of one chain end. The ring is closed with the flat jaws pliers.
Then we do the same with the clasp on the other silver chain end.
Setting up the clasp of the bracelet
We finally get our bracelet finished.
