Long time no jewelry on Kittenhood! And to think I’ve started this blog to promote my jewelry back in 2010… A lot has changed since then, including the type of jewelry I like. It’s now on the minimalist, delicate side, with much less cuteness and adornments. Such is this bracelet idea, which can easily be reproduced by any one of you with the proper supplies. And here they are:
What you need:
- tape measure
I began by measuring my wrist and adding 2 cm to that number (e.g. wrist is 14 cm, bracelet will be 16 cm). I laid the tape measure flat on the table as shown above, and placed the bracelet closure at 0 and 16 cm (adjust to your own number). Then I placed the spacers, at regular intervals. I measured the distance between two spacers, then measured a piece of chain of the same size. For me, this was 2.5 cm, which translates as 7 chain links.
I broke the chain into lots of small pieces of this length. I used 20 chain pieces of 7 links each, plus four more for the closure. I connected each five pieces of chain to two spacers, until a bracelet was formed. I finished with a clasp.
This would also work nicely as a choker!
