Bracelet with pearls
I want to introduce you to an unusual way of creating jewelry from talented masters – elegant weave of the rings. We offer two classes: the creation of a bracelet and earrings. Enjoy watching!
I made jump rings of sterling silver filled wire (18 ga, half hard). The rings had to be a little bit bigger than beads.
To make first bracelet link, connected 4 rings as it shown on the picture.
Then keeping them in fingers fingers as shown on the image below, I “opened” the rings forming them in a shape of nest. Places a pearl bead inside the nest.
Then, closed upper rings like it shown on the picture…
.. and connected them with two more jump rings. This rings are starting next chain maille bracelet link.
Again… opened rings to make a nest, placed a bead inside.
Closed the rings and connected with more jump rings.
And so on until the bracelet is needed length. In the end, I attached a clasp, and the bracelet is ready to wear 🙂
