This eclectic braided bracelet will have you swooning!
This may be one of my favorite pieces of jewelry I’ve made yet!
I’m dubbing this one the Eclectic Braided Bracelet.
I found this fabulous silver and pink version on Pinterest and knew I would have to make one for myself.
Unfortunately the link to the bracelet no longer exists, but it originated from Karma Loop.
I went for a gray and silver version since my wardrobe tends to be a bit of a monochromatic symphony of white, black, and gray.
This is not a step by step tutorial, but you do not need a ton of jewelry making know how to make it.
It’s more of a “giving you the gist of it” type follow along.
Also, its my first jewelry knock off!
large round & oval silver chain
silver ribbon (did not end up using…)
white &s silver sparkly fabric
3-strand bracelet clasp
I separated out the pieces I wanted to used in each of my 3 strands of the braid.
Then I attached each strand to a single jump ring which I then attached to the bracelet clasp.
I continued the braid until the bracelet was long enough to fit around my wrist.
Then I trimmed the strands and fitted the ends to jump rings.
By now my braid had worked loose from all of the manipulating of the jump rings so I simply redid it keeping it a combination of tight to keep its shape, but loose so that the there wasn’t a lot of tension on the strands.
I don’t want anything breaking later!
I trimmed down my fabric. The ends are the prettiest thing ever, but hopefully there is so much going on with the bracelet that no one will notice.
It can be dressy or casual.
(But in a good way!)
Now do you see why I called it eclectic?
These eclectic braided bracelets could easily be created for any color scheme with the addition of a strip of fabric or some ribbon!
What color would you make?
