This bracelet is a special, striking piece that you could wear for a special occasion, such as a Christmas party!
Our drusy cabachons have been extremely popular since they came in so we have increased our selection. To choose a different colour stone for your bracelet or browse our full selection of drusy cabachons click here.
Unfortunately we no longer supply the wave toggle clasp featured in the photo, within the shopping list for this project we have chosen our sterling silver toggle clasp instead.
Step by step instructions
The beauty of gallery wire link settings for cabochon stones is that they're so easy to set - simply place your drusy cabochon in the link setting and use a bezel rocker to gently push the gallery wire claws over the stone to hold it in place. Once your stone is housed in its bezel use the bezel rocker to push the metal over the stone, working from all sides and gently rocking back and forth with downward pressure until the stone is secured.
Repeat for all eight drusy cabachons.
Now you can link together your bracelet using jump rings. Using flat or snipe nose jewellery pliers, open a jump ring and slip on a drusy setting, the bar of the sterling silver toggle clasp and one end of the safety chain, then close the jump ring. For more tips on opening and closing jump rings click here.
Continue to attach the drusy settings with jump rings until you reach the last one then attach the loop end of the sterling silver toggle clasp and the other end of the sterling silver safety chain.
Your bracelet is now complete, enjoy wearing!
Flat nose pliers - for gripping wider surfaces, bending angles in sheet or wire and opening and closing jump rings or loops.
