Step-by-step making stretchy silicone bracelets with basic settings.

The fundamentals of making stretchy settings & crystals bracelets

 

 

Now Available also as almost finished silicone bracelets, check out the components of this inspiration. 

 

Trends come and go, and one of the fashionable trends that have been with us for a long time is stretch silicone bracelets.

 The stretchy silicone bracelets are straightforward to wear, without the need for unique adjustment to wrist diameter or triangular bracket and extension chains. 

Something in silicone bracelets is universal, which is one reason they have been so popular for years.

 

Recently, the trend is back, and now it is more sparkling and more luxurious; today, you can find uncompromising quality crystals and rhinestones at affordable prices. More and more popular are precisely the use of larger and present crystals.

 

 

In this tutorial, we will learn how to beat the stretched silicone bracelets with the right tools and the proper technique. It is effortless, and the result is impressive.

 

Silicone bracelets are easy to make and have an impressive appearance. The problems that are usually encountered when making bracelets with silicone thread are that sometimes the silicone thread may open and the bracelet opens, as well as the diameter of the bracelet is often too small or too large.

 

So whether you make the bracelets for yourself, as a gift for loved ones, or sell them to your clients.

 

There are a few essential tools and techniques that, if you follow, you will avoid any mishaps, and the preparation of the bracelets will be much easier and more fun, and the result we said is stunning.

 

Let's start:

 

The subjects covered in this article are:

 

  • Tools and raw materials needed to most stretch silicone bracelets

  • Step by step, making the bracelets

  • Links to the raw materials in bulk to create bracelets from scratch

  • Links to silicone bracelets are connected without crystals 

 

Take a look at this easy and simple tutorial for creating your own beautiful classic elastic bracelet made with stone settings on a double silicon thread and Crystals. 

 

Step 1: Gather your materials

 

The materials you need for making this kind of bracelet are very few.

 

 

A roll of stretched silicone thread for beading

Open back stone settings that have 4 holes on the sides (stone settings that are also for sewing)

Small crimp beads

A plier tool

  

Step 2: Prepper the elements for one bracelet

This cup chain bracelet can stretch a bit and slide on the wrist when wearing it, but not more than that, it still needs to hold the hand quite closely.

The size is important when making this kind of bracelet, so you should see how many stone settings you need to use for one bracelet.

For example, these bracelets are 16cm long and making a fairly small size bracelet.

 

Also, cut a small piece of the silicon thread at about three times longer than the row of stone settings you have.

 

 

 

Step 3: Creating the bracelet

Each one of the stone settings, if it is a large 16x16 square or a small 29ss have two holes on each side that the silicon thread needs to be slid through.

So, you need to fold the silicon thread in two and slide it into the top holes and the lower holes on each setting, and keep this order all the way to the end.

 

 

 

Step 4: Closing the bracelet

The ends of top and bottom lines of the silicon thread need to meet inside the stone setting so it will be closed nicely without showing any of it. Slide a small crimp bead and press it tightly with the help of the plier tool.

 

When you have small settings like 39ss\8mm you should close each end of the silicon thread with a crimp bead in a different stone setting, so it won’t jam the crystal that needs to be embedded inside. If it is a larger setting such as 12mm Rivoli it is fine to close both ends in the same setting.

 

 

 

Designing ideas:
Making a closed, stretched bracelet of 39ss\8mm stone setting is the basic one, but here are more ideas for upgrading your bracelet collection.
1. Using metal casting beads, natural beads, small or big ones to make the bracelet even more interesting.
2. Making a centerpiece with a few larger stone settings with crystals in the middle of the bracelet.
3. Make a bracelet with several kinds of stone settings and create your own designed cup chain combination.
4. The perfect place to use one shape of stone setting, but in a variety of metal plating colors.

 

 

 

 

Have fun creating your own stretch bracelet for Crystals!
