This Assad Mounser-inspired multi-chain charm bracelet is a great stash-busting project, perfect for using up leftover bits of chain and charms.
Time needed: 30-60 mins
Assortment of chain
Selection of charms
Lots of jump rings
Round nose pliers
Flat nose pliers
1. Measure your wrist and deduct 1-2 inches from the measurement, depending on how wide your connectors are. I had to take about 2 inches from the measurement because I used fairly wide connectors.
I learnt this part the hard way; the first time I made the bracelet I put it on and it slipped off over my hand!
2. Cut several lengths of chain to this measurement. I used a premade length of beads as well as regular chain--to make these:
- thread a bead onto an eye pin,
- bend the end in a loop using round nose pliers
- connect on another eye pin
In addition, I made strands using two shorter pieces of different styles of chain by opening a link in the chain and joining them together.
3. Use jump rings to join the lengths of chain to the connectors. In some places I joined on two lengths of chain to one hole of the connector. For the bracelet in the picture, I used 8 strands of chain across 5 connector holes.
4. Add charms to one side of the bracelet.
5. Fix on a clasp and voila!
