1. Introduction : How to make your own bracelet. You can actually make this type of elegant bracelets after watching this class. Hello guys, my name is start. I'm the founder of style, perhaps. Currently, I'm living in Malaysia. If you have never made any jewelry before, you can absolutely do this because I'm going to walk you through everything you need to know for making jewelry. During this tutorial, you will see what tools you are required to have and move on to the measuring the wrist size, what type of beads to use, wires, as well as clasps. I'm gonna take you step-by-step on the bracelet making process, starting with making the loops on the stones, assembling the beads, and finishing the bracelet. If you have any questions or comments, go ahead and positive. I would love to see your bracelets using this technique and style. Feel free to share the photos with me. Let's get started. 2. Tools Required: For this project, you will be required to have two different jewelry pliers. This is a round no supplier. One of the most essential tools. We will need this to make loops. Second item in my list is too long, no supplier, which comes with wire cutter at the end. It serves as three in one. The next tool which we need is a pair of scissors. The size and type does not really matter as long as it can cut the thread while making the bracelet. I have chosen small ones for convenience, measuring tape is one of the tools which is required to measure the wrist size. And we would need also to use it for Wired lens, I have to kind of measurements in centimeters and other in inches. You may also use any size you are comfortable measuring with last but not least, stainless steel tiger tail beading wire, 0.38 m m, which is the most optimal thickness for bracelets and necklaces. This is a thin wire encased in Ireland, is suited to stringing Havi beats. This is the most common and easy to use threat, but it is also extremely difficult to tear. Here you have observed the most essential tools required for the bracelet. In the following video, I will show you how to measure your wrist size. 3. Measuring The Wrist Size: Now, let's learn how to measure the risk so the Brissot size should be accurate. For that reason. You may use any measuring tape. I'm using this dual sided flexible mini measuring tape trick, which I used here, is to add transparent scotch tape at the beginning. So it will stick to my wrist and allow me to go round without a hustle. By using this method, I will be very precise in my measurement. My wrist size is 19 centimeters. However, it would be quite tight if my bracelet is exactly 19 centimeters. Therefore, I have added one more centimeter extra and stopped at 20 centimeters. The size of the bracelet should not be too loose or too tight. It should be perfectly fine. 4. Selecting Beads and Findings: In this lesson, I'm going to walk you through the findings and bits which we will use for the bracelet. Bracelet design will hugely depend on the colors and beat selected. Therefore, I have selected pinkish with overriding of reddish stones. For the centered design of the bracelet, I have chosen the orange colored stones. They are not equal in shape and color. That's the beauty of using the stones in the bracelet. It will not be static or predictable. A pair of class is used for closing the bracelet. You may choose any kind and style according to your taste. For this video, I have chosen the magnetic round bulk crystal class with small crystals, stones on the surface for every bit which we use in the bracelet, it will come with a big caps. There are 10 pairs of big caps, but in different designs and styles. Without the cabs, the bracelet will look plane and it would not get, it's nice. Design. Mixed spacer. These are used between the bead caps to create a space between beats and to decorate the bracelet mice spacers are mixed size and various design. However, the theme color remains the same as silver. Around cover stopper beets. I will use them once I have secured the wire at the beginning and at the end. This will make it look really professional and have an elegant finishing, bold cream in rose gold color 3 m m. At this point, the color of the cream does not really matter since we are using silver color cover to cover the crimp, wire protectors, loops, U-shaped clasps, connectors, 4 M M. One of the essential finding in the bracelet, especially for connecting the class to the Brexit. We need only two pieces. Ball had been 50 MM. This will be used to make loops for the stones, which we are going to use for the center of the bracelet. Now, let's get started with the actual brace at making process. 5. Getting Started: In this lesson, we will begin with making the small stone loops with ball had beans and with the help of around no supplier, Let's first take our round nose pliers. Ball had been and orange stones. Now let me grab one of the stones. And one of the ball had been the next step to put the head been to the stone and make sure that there's no space between vault and the stone. Let's make a loop with the help of round most player when to grab the edge of the Hep-B and keep rolling inwards until it reached to the stone and locks the stone. If you have sharp end, you may press it hard with the applier. Here's the first sample. For the second one, we use the same technique and method. If the loops are not equally round, no worries, because they will not be seen in the bracelet. If you're had been is really long. You may cut it in half. For this purpose. Use small stones, carry on until the last stone. I'm almost done with my stones. They are turning out really beautiful. With the silver color of ball had been the finished look of the stones are here. Look at the beautiful colors of stones and mixed sizes, which perfectly finished look. 6. Assembling the Bracelet: In this lesson, I'm going to show the main process of the bracelet, which is assembling the stones with findings on the tiger's tail wire. For that purpose, let me measure the wire length. By the help of measuring tape. I'm going to take extra 10 centimeters for the wire. If the bracelet is supposed to be 20 centimeters, I'm choosing. So D centimeters. With this Cesar, you may cut the wire and live the Caesar measuring tape and remaining wire aside. We might not need it anymore. The step one at one ball Karim into the wire depth to add new shape clasp connector to do wire inserted from one side and cross over the top and come out from the other side. Step 3, I'm putting the first half of the round magnetic clasp to the beginning of the bracelet, unique to go from the smaller thread, not from the side where you have the cream. Once you have added the class, take the shorter side of the threat and close it in-between the cream. Afterwards, make sure that the cream is close to the clasp connector. And use tooth, long known supplier to lock the cream at that location. Once I have pressed with the tooth side, now I'm using the flat surface to secure the cream more. Once it's secure, the thread does not move around and it properly locks. Step for the press. Cream must be covered with the round cover. Who did on the cream and used tooth long nose pliers to cover the cream. You might need to use a little force to cover it. Once it's tightened, it looks complete. The extra thread. You need to cut it out with the scissors. Step five, the actual assembling of beads begin for every stone beat. I need one pair of bead cap. Let me insert one of the cap wrist and followed by a stone. Once the stone is inserted, make sure that the small cut thread should be inside the stone so it will not come out while wearing it. The first beat stone is ready. Afterwards, I will add the spacer. Round two will follow the same style as the first one. Bear in mind to arrange the stone based on color and size correctly, since they are not even. Carry on until you have put the first five stones. When you reach the feast. Don't, do not add spacer. Instead, start directly with the Looped stones. Step 6, it's time to add all your amazing looped stones and do not give space in-between them. Eventually, they will round up and cover all the sites. We are halfway there. Push the stones to one side and hold with your hand to see how the ending will look like. Step 7, after the Stones start with beep caps and carry on adding the remaining stones with spacers. We are almost done. Let me secure the bracelet with the ball cream at the end. One of your pliers and press it on the crimp hardly. Afterwards, grab one of the round covers and covered the cream for an aesthetic look. Use two's, long nose pliers and lockup nicely. The assembly is done. Now, we move on to the class. 7. Finishing and Attaching the Clasp: This is one of the most important lessons where I'm going to take you through the ending of the bracelet. Along with attaching the class. For the ending, we will follow the similar process as the beginning. Firstly, add one of the cream and take the last piece, the U-shaped glass connector, inserted from one side and cross over the top and come out from the other side in between the U-shaped clasp connector. Could the second round ball class afterward, pull the remaining thread and leave a space for the cream and cover. Once you reach the edge, fig the threat, and go one more round of the cream and one more time, pull the thread tighter. Now, let me secure the clasp area by pressing the cream with my player. The sign of the secured lock is when thread does not move, even though you pull it hard. That's when we can consider that the class is secured. An extra thread can be removed from the abrasive to finalize the bracelet. Let me use the last round cover and hide the cream inside it. Perfect. We ended up having to round covers. The ending point, which one of them serves as bracelet lock, and the other serves as a class block that this is the final look of my bracelet. The advantage of having magnetic class is the ease of opening and closing the bracelet. Never be afraid to try new colors and mix and match the spacers and bead caps, you may end up having a great bracelet to wear for yourself or gifted as a present to your loved ones. 8. Conclusion: In this class, we have covered all the tools and materials required for the bracelet and the steps on making the actual bracelet from the scratch, starting from adding the first-class and securing the clasp at the beginning, and managing the extra thread by hiding it under the beat. Each side of the bracelet uses five pinkish stones and spacers and five pairs of beat caps in the center of the bracelet. The orange and white colors perfectly complementing the bracelet. Most importantly, making sure that we utilize the space correctly and do not make the bracelet too tight or too loose. Last but not least, the most important step is to log the bracelet and the final class with the claims and round covers. All in all, this is a very elegant looking professional braces, which you can make it yourself with minimum items and basic skills required. Even if you have never made any jewelry before, no worries, you can use this technique and style. Make it yourself.
