Labradorite Wrapped Bangle

Labradorite Wrapped Bangle

This gemstone donut bangle is another example how our beautiful gemstone donuts can be used in a piece. It's really easy to make, looks fab and is a great example of how a simple design can really work!

Step by step instructions

With side cutters cut the 0.5mm sterling silver wire into 2 30cm lengths.

With one of the lengths wrap the wire through the hole of the donut to create a bail with a loop on one side, you want the loop to be about 5mm in diameter. 

Repeat with another length of wire and do the same the other side. This will give you connector loops either side of your donut.

Now you just have to attach it to your bangle bar, use flat nose fliers to ease open the closed side of the bangle bar, and attach one side of your connector.

Once bangle top is threaded onto the closed end of the wire take care to squeeze the loop shut so it will not fall off.

The other end is used to close the bangle when it is on your wrist so that the tension of the wire will then cleverly keep the top in place. Please note that as the wire needs to be under tension to be secure, these are snug around your wrist.

With such a wide choice of gemstones why not try using a different stone, to see our full range click here.
