Black Diamond Bracelet

Black Diamond Bracelet

A minimalistic design using a stunning diamond. This tutorial can be used for both a bracelet, necklace or choker to create a beautiful result and is a great way to practice wire-work.

In this particular design we used the largest of our black diamond faceted rondelle beads but you can use any size you like.

Step By Step Instructions

Begin by cutting your chosen chain in half by using side cutters. Ensure that the chain is cut exactly at the half way point from the chain’s clasp.

Using 0.2mm  wire, cut a 5cm piece and use your round nose pliers to carefully bend the wire around them to form a loop.

Slip one side of the chain onto the wire, making sure that it is the end link and that it sits within the loop of wire.

Next wrap the short end of wire you used making the loop around the longer side. Continue doing so until you form a spiral around your loop. Use snips to cut off any remaining wire and tuck it in so it won’t catch.

Now you can thread your diamond bead onto the wire.

Grab your round nose pliers to then create another loop at the other end of the 5cm piece of wire.

Slip the other end of the chain onto the wire and within the loop.

Repeat the process of wrapping the wire around the loop and cut off any access wire.

Tip: If you’d like an antiqued look, usliver of sulphur on your chain.
