DIY Gold Earth Bracelet

This bracelet is inspired by the one mentioned in Tin Star and The Stone in the Sky by Cecil Castelluci. It is present in both books and somewhat plays a part, but I don’t want to give away much more than that. 🙂

Supplies Needed

Gold colored chain
Gold colored lobster clasp
Gold colored jump rings
Needlenose Pliers
Wire cutters
Gold earth charm (I got mine on Etsy)

Directions

  1. Cut a length of chain using your wire cutters. You can either measure by wrapping around your wrist (if it’s for you), or use a ruler to measure a standard size. (I used this pin as reference.)

2. If your charm is set up with a hole perpendicular to the charm, you can just slide it on the chain. If the hole is flat with the charm, you will want to use a jump ring to attach it. (Jump ring directions are in the next step.)

See how the ring is perpendicular?

3. If your lobster clasp comes with an eyelet, open a jump ring with the needlenose pliers, slide the eyelet on, and then attach the jump ring (with eyelet) to the last link of your chain. Close with the needlenose pliers. If your lobster clasp does not have an eyelet, just attach the jump ring.

4. Use the same method to attach a jump ring and lobster clasp to the other end of the chain.

5. That’s it! Now you have your very own gold Earth bracelet.

I hope you enjoy! I love jewelry making, especially since it’s often so simple!
