Use various connectors and create diverse jewelry

Metal connectors, stone settings with loops, beads metal chains leather, and more

Use various connectors and create diverse jewelry

In the following article, we will present some exciting ideas for using different types of connectors to create exciting and varied jewelry.

What can be used as part of a connector to a piece of jewelry? What can replace the simple metal chain?

 

We hope the following inspiration will give you some ideas for upgrading your jewelry.


Here you can follow the links to all kinds of interesting connectors:
Cup chain connectors

Metal Shapes

Filigree elements

Hollow link connectors
Chain links
Charms

 

A few words about color combinations in these inspirations.

For the jewelry shown in the images below, we used crystals in Purple & Blue colors.

You can see a mix of Swarovski sparkly crystals with opaque glass stones in beautiful shades of purple and blue.

The Swarovski crystals used: Sapphire, Violet, Light Amethyst, Aquamarine, crystal AB and Tanzanite.

 

Metal plating:

Antique silver, nickel, shiny silver, and antiquebrass.

 

Tip: Combine several metal platings in a piece of jewelry to create a more detailed look; gold and silver go well together, and even a combination and play between matte plating finishes will go well together in matte bronze matte nickel. Try a mix of black and nickel or an antique-style plating like antique silver, antique brass, and antique copper.

Use connectors in necklaces or as a Pendant:

In the pictures below you will see different uses for connectors - from left to right:

1. Using a stone setting with a top loop as a pendant + a round connecting part with a blessing inscription divides the necklace into two. 

2. We used a navette shape setting with bottom and top loops; use the bottom loop to hang charms and cup chain connector which divides the metal chain into two.

3. Used a hollow star shape element with rhinestone crystals as the connector.

4. Another idea of using stone settings as connectors. ?ombine a few settings in different shapes and sizes to make a short round necklace or a long dramatic pendant.

One or two large stones in these necklaces will add sparkle and color to make them stand out.

 

Play with materials and create your versions of pendant necklaces.

 


 


Use connectors in Bracelets:
In the image below, you can see some ideas for using connectors to create bracelets, and there's no limit to the different variations you can make.

We chose this inspiration to show you how you can create a necklace just by connecting simple loops between connectors:
In the upper bracelet on the left side of the picture - we used a cup chain connection part and connected a connector with the word "Hope".
And in the bracelet below, we took parts of rhinestone chain + rolo chain attached to them with metal casting with the inscription "LOVE".

 

 

 

Important, for a piece that combines a large number of connecting parts and connectors, and especially for heavier jewelry that also contains metal parts, 

it is essential to pay attention to the quality of the connection between the elements; it is better to use strong connections and sometimes even better to secure the parts with extra jump rings.
