Check out these super stylish jewelry pieces, that are so very easy to make. The best thing about them is that they really look great, even though they are made from a few stone settings, 3 or 4 crystals and a polyester cord.
They look beautiful, it doesn’t take long to make them and they will not be expensive to buy!
STEP 1: making the pendant
The edge of this braided cordage polyester cord can get untied, so use a lighter to gently worm the edge of the cord, and you will see that the threads melt and forms a strong tip that will help you slide it very easily inside the loops and will not open even when worn a lot.
Now you can easily slide the cord into the loops on the sides of these stone settings.
STEP 2: Closing and embedding
Use the plier tool to press the crimp ends tightly around the edges of the cord, connect the clasp on the right side, and the extension chain on the left side.
TIP: Most people are right handed, and it will be comfortable for them to hold the clasp on their right hand. That is the way we connect the clasp on the right side.
Now you can choose the crystal colors that you think is right for this necklace, and place the crystal inside the stone setting, and use the prong pusher to bend the metal prongs on the crystal, so it does not move.
STEP 3: Creating a bracelet
It is very easy to also make a bracelet in this way. Use two 17mm cords, and slide the 39ss\8mm stone settings on both of them. At one end side two 6mm jump rings, and one small 5mm jump ring that holds the two cords tightly together.
To finish of the bracelet, use a 3mm crimp end to hold both cords together, and connect clasp and extension chain on either sides.
