Step by step instructions
Start by deciding what length you would like your bracelet and if you would like it single or double (as we have done). Bear this measurement in your mind.
Approx 6cm from the clasp on the chain use side cutters to open a link and break the chain.
Now lay down the chain leaving space for the where the beads will lie in the middle.
Using the measurement that you have taken, finish the other end of the bracelet by taking some links out and re-attaching the jump ring that was attached to the chain.
Now you can attach your beads to the middle of the bracelet. Thread one end of the flex-rite wire through the end of one of the chain links and back through a 2x2mm rolled gold crimp.
Using magical crimping pliers, gently squeeze the crimp and you will create a little round bead.
Thread the peridot beads onto the wire and loop the other end through the other side of the chain.
Repeat the step above securing with a rolled gold crimp.
Your bracelet is now complete!
