Oh me, oh my!

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!

eclectic braided bracelet supplies
3 different sizes of silver chain

large round & oval silver chain

gray pearls

silver beads

gray cording

silver ribbon (did not end up using…)

silver tulle

white &s silver sparkly fabric

3-strand bracelet clasp

creating the bracelet
To prep the fabric, I cut it into strips and threaded the tulle through the large silver chain.

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.

braiding the bracelet
I started braiding, being sure to keep the thinner pieces on top of the wider pieces in each strand.

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!

Now that I had a nice “tight” braid, I attached the loose jump ring ends to the other side of the bracelet clasp.

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’s really something I can wear with almost anything!

It can be dressy or casual.

Doesn’t it look like a hot mess?

(But in a good way!)

Now do you see why I called it eclectic?

I’m thinking I may need more versions of these for those moments when my wardrobe grabs a little color.

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?

What the length of the things you used before you attached it to the 3 ring bracelet clasp. I sometimes have them end up to tight or too loose. Once it's made you can't adjust it. Thanks... they are beautiful!
