4th of July necklace and bracelet set

04/06/2015
4th of July necklace and bracelet set

 In this tutorial will make a necklace and a matching bracelet, in a color combination for the 4th of July.

  

step 1: preparing the materials

Prepare your work environment, by choosing the metal elements, and leather you want to us.

 

Silver flat gourmet chain – two pieces of 6cm each.

Cut a 50cm piece from the red leather.

 

 

Crystal colors: Clear crystal, light Siam and three shades of blue

 

 

step 2: connecting the center chain of the necklace


Use 6mm jump rings to connect the center piece to the small parts of the gourmet chain.

Also open 6mm jump rings for connecting two parts of the clasp.

 

 

Connect the leather to the cup chain with two small 5mm jump rings and a 6mm jump ring to the hold the leather.

 

 

Open and close the jump rings with the help of the plier tools, gently so the leather will not be harmed.

 

After the leather is completely connected to the cup chain, use the cutting tool to cut the leather to the exact length of the chain.

 

 

To close the necklace the end of the leather needs to be held by the metal ends for 3mm cord.

Just put the metal ends on the leather edge and use the pleir tool to press it until it closes.

 

 

Connect the leather and chain together and hang two parts of the clasp on each end of the necklace.

 

  

Step 3 : hanging the small pendents

 

Use three 5mm jump rings for each pendent and hang them on the cup chain.

 

 

Step 4 : setting the stones

 

You can take a toothpick and put a small piece of soft wax at top – this well be great to hold and place the stones to there place.

 

Use E6000 to embed the 14pp stones, and the the embedding tool for the 39ss stones.

 

  

Step 5 : creating the bracelet

 

Cut two pieces from the red leather to the exact length of the cup chain, and put the metal ends on each end.

  

Now hang the two leather cords on the connector element and two jump rings for the double cup chain.

Also connect one part of the clasp on each end of the bracelet.

 

 

Use small 5mm jump rings to hang the pendents on one side of the bracelet.

 

  

Step 6 : setting the stones

 

Place the stone in the center of the stone setting and with the help of the setting tool bend the prongs towards the stone in order to embed it.

 

Bend the prongs gently to make sure you don't damage the stone or crack the plating in this process.

 

 

wonderful!

The necklace and bracelet are ready!

 

Enjoy your new beautiful Swarovski set.
