This simple turquoise chip beads bracelet is a modern and minimalist design, which would be a perfect gift for someone special.
If you like the design but fancy using an alternative chip beads, browse our collection here or why not choose gemstone beads instead?
Remember to ensure your wire size is appropriate for the chip beads you are using. In this project we have used 0.45mm wire.
This kit contains a 90cm strand, so you can make more designs!
1. Use side cutters to cut your desired length of flex rite wire. We have cut 18cm of wire and the crimp bead and clasp together is approximately 2cm so our bracelet will be roughly 19cm (as some wire will be inside the crimp).
2. Start by threading the crimp with loop to the end of the wire and squeeze gently with snipe or flat nose jewellery pliers.
3. Thread on the beads.
4. At the end of the wire thread on the other crimp with loop and squeeze gently with snipe or flat nose jewellery pliers.
5. Open the bolt ring and add to one of the loops. Fasten the bracelet and your design is complete!
Make the design your own by using your favourite supplies.
