Nautilus Shell Charm Bracelet

Nautilus Shell Charm Bracelet

Ready set gemstone bezel connectors are perfect for creating beautiful pieces of jewellery in the minimum time, by simply adding a charm you can quickly create personalised necklaces and bracelets. This bracelet combines aqua blue chalcedony, with a sterling silver nautilus charm to capture a relaxed beach style that will remind you of sunny days by the sea. 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 chalcedony bezel connector and the nautilus 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, nautilus shell 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/nautilus shell link central on the chain divide the length of the insert in half and remove that amount from the center of the bracelet chain by cutting the links with side cutters. If you are unsure how much to remove, err 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/nautilus shell 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 - you design is ready to wear!

As mentioned before try mixing it up with some different gemstone connectors or beads and charms. You could also use a longer length chain to create a necklace instead. For this design we have used our sterling silver mini belcher chain, however you can choose any of our open link chains.
