Blue Saphire Chunky Bracelet

Hello everyone!! Wednesday has arrived and with a new step by step tutorial created by me! Today’s tutorial is a very elegant chunky bracelet. Made with beaultiful 8mm blue Saphire beads.
Remembering, if you are not into jewelry making, you can find this bracelet available in my Etsy Shop where I am still offering a 15% discount on all items.

Lets check the supplies list:

Make a chunky bracelet

– 8mm beads (bigger beads are also a great go, to make the bracelet even chunkier)
– 3 strands chain of your choice (I’ve chose a woven 2 links chain)
– eye pins
– jump rings
– toggle clasp

Lets start!!

Step 1: Slide one bead on a eye pin. If needed cut the excess and using your round nose plier, make a loop.

Step 2: Repeat step one with another bead and before closing the loop, atatch it to the previous loop/bead from step 1.
