Jewelry inspiration for the 4th of July

Jewelry inspiration for the 4th of July

Jewelry inspiration for the 4th of July

 In this tutorial we will be creating a three row bracelet, inspired by the tricolor flag of America, to celebrate the upcoming American independence day!

 

Here is a list of all the components you need to make this bracelet, and 3 simple steps to follow:

 

 

Metal components:
1X 39ss\8mm cup chain for bracelet
1X 29ss\6mm cup chain for bracelet with
one loop at the center
2X 39ss\8mm connectors with one big loop on
one side and three small loops on the other side
1X 10mm spring clasp
5cm of Extension chain
5mm jump rings

Elastic Silicone thread

 

Crystals, pearls and beads:

16X 8mm White Swarovski pearls
12X 29ss\6mm Light Siam SW crystals
5X 29ss\6mm Padparadscha SW crystals
2X 39ss\8mm Light Siam SW crystals
2X 39ss\8mm Sapphire SW crystals
12X 6mm round Royal Blue plastic disc beads
20X 6mm round Royal Blue Jade stone beads

 

Tools:
2 plier tools
Prong pusher tool


STEP 1:  Embedding the white pearls and Red crystals
The 8mm White SW pearls will perfectly set into the 39ss\8mm cup chain, and the 29ss Red SW crystals will fit exactly in the 29ss\6mm cup chain.
Use the prong pusher tool to bend the metal prongs on the pearls and crystals, so that they will not move in their stone setting.

 

Have a look at Gita’s wide collection of Swarovski crystals, and pearls.

 

 

STEP 2: A row of Blue beads
For the row of beads, you will need to cut a piece of 20cm of Silicone thread.
Make a loop with the edge of the Silicone thread around a 5mm jump ring, and hold it in place with a small metal bead. Press the metal bead so it will hold the thread tight, and slide the ends of the thread into the first bead.
Slid the Blue beads on the silicone thread to make a row that will be at the same length as the cup chains.

 

Here are many kinds of natural beads that you can use for your creations.

 

 

STEP 3: Connect the bracelet
Open the 5mm jump ring with the plier tools and connect the row of beads and two cup chains to the connectors.
Also connect the extension chain at one side and the clasp on the other side.

 

 

The loop that is in the center of the cup chain with the Red crystals is the place to hang charms or an extra colorful crystal. In this case, I used a 39ss\8mm stone setting with SW rhinestone around, and a 10mm SW star crystal.

 

 

Creating jewelry that celebrates the independents day are all about the white, Blue & Red colors of the flag, that can be used in so many creative ways. When you want to create a truly unique and special jewelry, use several martials combined together and make a jewelry piece that will surely stand out from the rest!

 

Have fun creating!
