Fashion DIY: Chain meets pearls ~ Tale of a handmade charm bracelet

11 Sep

This is an original handmade charmed bracelet by Karboojeh Jewelry. I made it for someone who wants to wear a full-of-memories bracelet, since it carries little cute butterflies, a bear, leaves, coins, pearls, and different shaped & colored beads.

To make one, you need:

~ Round-nose pliers

~ Metal findings

~ Glass, ceramic, metallic beads, &  faux pearls

~ Eye-pin findings (to attach the charms)

~ Chain

~ Clasp

~ Jump ring (optional)

General Tips:

  • Start by deciding on the color combination of the bracelet. I chose white and blue, with occasional silver to sit neatly on a bronze-black chain.
  • Try to add similar bead shapes from different materials. In this case I used a silver-metallic butterfly, and a blue glass one, to speak to each other, so to speak.
  • Add things that mean something to you. If you like them, odds are someone else will do too. We’re all human, and sometimes our tastes cross paths, more often than we think.
