Labradorite Lotus Bracelet

Labradorite Lotus Bracelet

Our gemstone bezel connectors are perfect for creating simple but fabulous designs. There are multiple variations of this design you can try with many other gemstones and silver charms, you can mix and match to create the perfect style for you.

Step by step instructions

Start by connecting the labradorite bezel connector and the lotus charm together using a jump ring (you can use your snipe nose pliers to open and close your jump rings, remember to twist the jump rings to open and close rather than pull them apart to ensure a tight and secure connection).

Then add jump rings to either end of your bezel connector/lotus charm combination you've just created (these will be the rings that you use to connect the link to the chain).

Once the bezel connector, lotus charm and jump rings are joined together, measure them as a whole to see how long the link is.

You will want to remove this amount of chain from the bracelet before connecting it otherwise it will be too large.

Tip: To keep the bezel connector/lotus link central on the chain divide the length of the insert in half and remove that amount from the centre of the bracelet chain by cutting the links with side cutters.

If you are unsure how much to remove, be on the side of caution and don't remove too much as you can always take out a little more afterwards.

Finally to complete your bracelet, use the two jump rings that are on either end of the bezel connector/lotus link to connect it to the chain, the bracelet should be the correct length now, however you can undo the jump ring and remove some more chain links if you need to adjust it to make it any smaller.

And it's as simple as that!
