diy stone chip bead bracelet

Step 1
Project Notes:
  • The instructions are written for a 6½" bracelet. Adjust measurements as needed.
  • 2 - Chain Nose Pliers are needed to complete this project.  
  • There are chip beads available in a variety of colors in the Michaels Stores and/or online (click here to shop online).
  
Slide chip beads onto the eye pin as desired until you reach about a ¼" from the end. 
Step 2
Use pliers to bend the end of the eye pin, after the last bead, at a 90° angle. Grasp the wire, just past the bend of the angle, with a pair of round nose pliers. Rotate the pliers toward you, keeping a firm grip on the wire until a small loop is formed. 
Step 3
Cut two pieces of chain approximately 2¼" in length. 
 
NOTE: The two pieces of chain, the beaded eye pin, jump rings and clasp all together should fit around your wrist.  
Step 4
Attach the chains to either end of the eye pin with jump rings. 
 
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring, which can cause distortion. 
Step 5
Attach a lobster clasp to one end of the chain, using a jump ring, and close.  
Step 6
Attach one single jump ring to the other end of the chain.
