DIY Finger Ring Bracelet Beaded Hand Chain on Soft Flex Wire
This week on Free Spirit Beading with Kristen Fagan, watch the making of a DIY ring bracelet. This was something totally new for me to try and I did it on the fly! Made with beads and components from one of our jewelry making Design Kits and Temple Link Connectors. That beautiful link connector really helps this design work.
This is my first rendition of the design. Full disclosure, I did have to work on the bracelet measurements after the video as I made it a tad too big at first. And since I was restringing the bracelet end, I decided to I wanted to include that teardrop Czech glass bead on the connection strand so, I re did that too! That's what happens when I design on the fly!
Here is the final rendition of the design. Since I has patina painted one side of the link connector, the design can be worn either way. Have a look at the two options below.
Hand chain bracelets are a piece of jewelry associated with several cultures. A hand chain consists of a bracelet that attaches to a ring via a chain, bejeweled links, or other ornate hand connector along the back of the hand. In this example, we used beads strung on Soft Flex beading wire.
Although this beautiful Bee Kind Design Kit is sold out, we do have a similar kit with a new theme for sale every month at SoftFlexCompany.com.
