DIY: Jump Ring Bracelet

Yesterday, I shared a photo of my bracelet on Instagram, and I said the tutorial was coming soon. So here it is! I hope you like it :)


Materials




Jump rings
Pearls (or any bead you like)
Chain nose pliers
Round nose pliers
Diagonal cutting pliers


Photo Tutorial






Step by Step


Step 1: You need to find a pearl that fits on the jump ring. I use irregular pearls but it's better if you use round ones.


Step 2: Open one jump ring and insert two jump rings. Then, add another jump ring at the end as shown in the photo.


Step 3: You will now have four jump rings. Grab two of them keeping the other two open.


Step 4: Place the pearl inside of those two jump rings you were keeping open.


Step 5: Move the other two jump rings closer to keep the pearl entirely inside.


Step 6: Keep adding jump rings and pearls the same way as step 2 and 4.


Step 7: Add a clasp at the end and that's it!


The Results



I think this is my new favorite bracelet! I use white and cream pearls because those are two of my favorite colors to wear. This bracelet looks simple and you can wear it everyday :)

Have you tried this bracelet before? Which color would you like to try?

  2. I definitely want to give this a try! It's so cute! How long did this take? I think any pearl would look pretty but for myself to wear I'd want off-white pearls.

    1. Thank you :) It took me like an hour and a half but, that was because I use irregular pearls and it was a little bit difficult to find a way to fit them inside the jump rings. If you make it with round pearls (or beads), it should take you less than that.

    1. Yes, it definitely seems complicated but it's super easy to make! I'm not going to lie, I had some problems with those pearls but, that's because they where irregular and not rounded. Anyways, it's way better if you use rounded beads :)

  8. Hi there.
    Firstly, lovely bracelet and great tutorial, thank you!
    I am stuck on step 1 though... what size bead in comparison to the jump ring should be used? e.g. if I'm using 5mm round beads, should I use the same diameter (5mm) jump rings?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi! You should use a bigger bead in comparison with the jump ring. That way, the bead won't get through the ring. Thanks for stopping by! Let me know if you need anything else.

    1. It depends on the size of the pearls that you are going to use. My recommendation is that you buy them together so you can compare it.
