D-I-Y 3-Strand Glass Bead & Chain Bracelet

I'm on a bracelet-making roll!! This one is seriously my favorite one so far - I wear it a lot! And the best part is that it was really easy to make!


The components are the same as the Multi-Strand Bracelet I made, but this bracelet is much different - so dainty and feminine.

You can use any beads, chains, and clasp that you like, but this is what I used:


The rondelle beads came as a strand, so I had to restring them on beading wire and add cord ends. You'll just need to make this strand the correct length for your wrist. Then I made the two chains the same length as the strand of beads.


Next, I attached each chain and the strand of beads to one side of the clasp, using jump rings. I placed the beads in the center, but you can do it however you like. Then, making sure to keep them straight and untangled, I attached the other ends to the other side of the clasp. Be sure that you have the clasp positioned correctly!


The pictures do not do these beads justice - they are so sparkly! They shimmer and shine whenever the light hits them!


I love it!! Be sure to let me know if you give it a try!
