DIY Little Bows Baubles Tutorial

DIY Little Bows Baubles Tutorial
When it comes to making a piece of jewelry my motto is the following: “Pretty Crafts Supplies = Pretty Jewelry Project.” So is no surprise that when I finally found these little bow beads, I thought to myself, no matter what I end up making with these, they will turn out cute. My inspiration came from a soft pink belt with gold by Kate Spade. You can view my Kate Spade belt on instagram.ks_beads

  1. I bought matte gold chain at Ben Franklins in Redmond WA. The staff at Ben Franklins is always so nice and very attentive. You can purchase any chain by the yard.
  2. Use a pair of pliers to cut 7″ inches strand of chain. The length of your chain depends on the size of your wrist, so measure your wrist and try a length that feels comfortable to wear for you.
  3. Proceed to cut the strand of chain in two equal parts and place the bow bead in the middle. You can connect the bead to the strand with a 6mm jump ring, or you can use pliers to gently “open” one end of each strand and attach it to each end of the bead.
  4. Finally, use a lobster clasp to one end of the chain, and you are done!
  5. This photo shows a bracelet using no jump ring.
  6. Final black and white bracelets.

 

As you can see, these bracelets are fairly easy to make, and both took under one hour of crafting time. I also made a simple necklace following the same steps I mentioned in my tutorial above.
