Crystal Bracelet DIY

Today I have a simple but cute jewelry DIY for you!!


You will need: pliers with thin, rounded tips; crystal beads (I used 11); medium-weight, flexible gold wire; large gold clasp/

1) Cut off around an inch and a half of wire, and using the pliers bend one end into a loop. This is why you need rounded pliers! It takes some practice to get it perfect-- but luckily it doesn't need to be perfect at all. And since the wire is so flexible, you can try over and over again if you want.

2) Slip a bead onto the wire. Make sure that your loop is touching the main wire so the bead doesn't slip off!

3) Create a loop on the other end of the wire. Before you close it, attach this loop to the one before (or to the clasp, if this is your first part of the chain).

4) Continue until your bracelet is long enough to fit you. Then make a large circle out of the wire for the clasp to hook into.

And you're done!!
