I am finally sharing Part III of this DIY Arm Candy Series. See Part I and Part II to create the ribbon and chain bracelet as well as the beaded bracelet to add to your pretty collection.
Today, the tutorial is all about the gold faceted button and chain piece.
What you will need:
cable chain (I used ~5.5" in length)
large faceted button (I found mine at Joanns within a variety pack)
2 large jump rings
needle nose pliers
Start by measuring the chain around your wrist. Create the chain by making it about .5-1" shorter than the circumference of your wrist. I measured my chain at 5.5". Set the chain aside.
Take a jump ring and your needle nose pliers and open the link. Push the jump ring through one of the button holes.
Attach an end link of your chain to the jump ring and close it using your pliers.
Do the same with the other jump ring and button hole.
Once your chain is now connected to the faceted button, remove the middle link of the chain to separate it.
Attach the lobster clasp to an end chain link using your needle nose pliers to open and close the link back up. Do the same with the link connector by attaching it to the other end link of your chain.
Voila! If your bracelet is too small or too big, you can always add or remove links in your chain.
If you make any of the bracelets from these tutorials, I'd love to see them! Use hashtag #lovesparklepretty via social media to spread the love and who knows, you may even see yourself on my blog. ;)
Have a beautiful day my friends!
