In this inspiration, you can will see a collection of centerpieces and bracelets which are all made with large metal chains, some have different shapes of stone setting, metal casting settings or cup chains soldered to them, so you get a piece with nice volume and bold look that will perfectly sit right on the body.
These new empty jewelry bases are made like this: the longer ones are designed to be as centerpieces, and the ones at about 15cm are the size of a standard bracelet size.
But they are all made with chains that you can open, so they can easily become something different if you like, for example, you can take the bracelet base and use as a centerpiece and you can take the centerpiece and make it into a
long wrap around bracelet, and remove some links to make it shorter.
Here you can see how you can use these really nice and add more elements to them making them become more rich with color, texture and details jewelry items:
How to make a metallic look:
One of the great things about this kind of jewelry bases is that they have plenty of place to hang elements from, like the ones with 39ss cup chain that you can see I use to hang more metal elements in antique silver and copper to make another nice dangling metallic layer to the bracelet and necklace.
How to add more color:
If you want the piece to look simple and clean you can always connect a clasp to the bracelet or another chain to the centerpiece and that’s it, but if you want to add more color and texture you can use any color of ribbon you like and simply make a nice look as you see here.
How to make a delicate look:
These large metal chains, jewelry bases don’t necessarily need to look so bold, you can use delicate colors of the crystals or use a silk cord for the center piece. You can also add some tassels to make it nicely colorful and bouncy.
Have fun creating new wonderful looking jewelry!
