Step one: Cut a length of sterling silver medium double round link chain to½ inch shorter than the length you need for your wrist. We cut ours to 6½ inches. Attach a sterling silver 16mm toggle clasp using two 0.9 x 4.6mm open jump rings on each side. These will transition flawlessly from the chain.
Step two: On each of the Swarovski crystal channel set links, add either a Swarovski drop, or a sterling silver 4mm round bead. When attaching the links to drops, you will use jump rings. The sterling silver beads will be attached by stringing them on a headpin and finishing with a simple loop. For instructions on how to make a simple loop, please Click Here.
Step three: Put your chain in a Chain Stä to work easily and best see the design as it emerges. Begin by attaching the longer links that you have just created to the chain at even intervals. Once they are in place, simply add the other Swarovski drops where you feel they will look good. There is no need to stop where we did. If you like a really full, fun look, just keep going! Variations: Choose just one or two colors to make the bracelet with. Jet and crystal would make a lovely piece for evening, or use different shades of one color like pink or blue.
