Love Knot Bracelet - As Seen on Blog for Beaders
Learn how to make a love knot bracelet in no time! This simple yet stylish jewelry design has long been regarded as a symbol of love, representing the everlasting and constant bond between two people. You can make a love knot bracelet for a friend or family member as a thoughtful gift. We'll show you how to make this bracelet using SilverSilk knitted wire in two different colors.
Cut two pieces of SilverSilk approximately 7 Â½ inches. Fold one strand in half and insert both ends into one double strand end cap. Clamp down using nylon jaw pliers for a firm hold. Repeat this process for the other SilverSilk chain. Connect them by threading one loop through the other, folding the top loop over itself and pulling it through. Finish each end with one 1.27x6.3mm open jump ring and connect your clasp to the jump rings.
If you need a little extra help you can watch the video above or visit our SilverSilk resources page for more helpful hints and quick videos. Remember, if you cut the chain to the length as instructed, your bracelet will be approximately 7 inches long. This may fit too snug on your wrist or fit too loosely depending on the style of clasp you use. If you decide to finish with a lobster clasp, you can create an extender chain using jump rings or view our selection of finished extender chains to make your bracelet adjustable.
