I was inspired to make these bracelets by some of these pins on Pinterest. I love the contrast of the big chain with the colored stones. Not to mention, they are pretty simple to make. Using minimal supplies and a few minutes, you can create a statement piece that packs a big punch. Projects like these are my favorite, quick and easy!!

Supplies

Supplies:
Dyed Agate Slices (ST5596-*)
Large Curb Chain (56CX1852)
3 Sizes Jump Rings (FI208-TG, 8FI222-2G, 12FI208-G)
Large Lobster Claw (31FI647-G)

Steps

Steps:
1) Cut chain into 2 3 inch sections. (8 or 9 links depending on the size of the stone.)
2) Attach agate to the chain with the 8mm jump ring.
3) Attach the clasp to the chain with the 6mm jump ring.
4) Attach the 12mm jump ring to the other side of the chain, opposite the clasp, using the 6mm jump ring. Be sure to close the 12mm jump ring so the edges are flush.
5) Wear your new bracelet!!

You don’t really need to use three sizes of jump rings. You can probably get away with just using the 8mm ones. However, since I happen to have a whole bead store at my disposal, I tend to get a little findings-happy and really customize every single piece. I like to use the thicker gauge jump rings (FI208-TG) when connecting clasps etc. because I find them much more secure than a thinner ring. Since I used a large clasp, I chose a very large jump ring (12FI208-G) to connected it to. As far as connecting the stone to the chain, I simply chose the smallest jump ring that would fit, and that happened to be an 8mm size (8FI222-2G.) Just use what works best for you and what you have on hand.

      Thanks! I’m all about the gold trend this summer. I have always been really into silver jewelry, but recently I’m starting to love gold more and more.

    Love these a LOT! My stepdad has always been into rocks, so I’ve sort of inherited an appreciation for pretty stones. And I LOVE the gold. I have always been more into silver too, but this gold trend has got me hooked! :)
