Bracelet Making!

Last weekend I got very crafty!

I am ok at crafting most things but I love making jewelry!

You can save yourself so much money if you make stuff yourself!

I want to share with you a really fun and easy bracelet I made!

































Supplies:
Beads
Chain
3 Jump Hooks
2 Crimps
Clasp
Fish line
Pliers
































Directions
Knot your fish line. I use fish line because it is hard to break, it is kind of hard to work with but your bracelet will last longer.

Crimp the one end of your fish line before you start beading it, this will make it a little easier.

Bead your bracelet. I only had a limited number of beads so I made the bracelet long enough to wrap around one and a half times.

Once you finish beading the fish line knot it and put the other crimp on.

Put a jump hook into each crimp.

Connect a few layers of chain to one of the jump hooks then connect another jump hook to the chain.

Connect the clasp to one jump hook.

Your finished!

















































I usually wrap my bracelet around and twist it with the chain and then hook it. I love my bracelet!! It is so fun and the chain and rock adds some sparkle :)

Your bracelet rocks! So pretty. And making jewelry saves so much money, and you know you end up with a product that you love because you made it exactly like you want! You have made me want to pull out my beads and tools and get busy!
