How to Make a Chained Medley Bracelet
It's simple to make an earthy stone bracelet accented with bright silver chain. Even a beginning jewelry crafter can complete this project, and when they're done, they'll have a beautiful bracelet and plenty of practice working with crimp beads and chain.
Cut wire & attach crimp bead
Cut a 9" section of jewelry wire. Slide on a crimp bead and a toggle end. Loop the wire back through the crimp bead, leaving the toggle on a small loop. Crimp the crimp bead with a crimping tool.
String chain onto wire
String the last link of the chain onto the wire followed by a stone. String the 6th link of the chain and a stone. Repeat the pattern of chain link and stone 8 more times.
Crimp & trim
Trim off excess chain. Add a crimp bead and toggle half, then loop the wire back through the crimp bead and several beads. Crimp and trim off any excess wire.
Open several jump rings and attach the charms to an end of the bracelet.
