Transcripts

1. Introduction: Hi, I'm starting from star crowds. Thank you for joining me today. Well, it's a lot of fun to make something different, especially your own jewelry. Today we are going to learn how to make three points, trend bracelet. And I'm going to break it down into simple steps and show you how I made it. Firstly, I will walk you through the tools which are required in the process, followed by findings and beads, which we will use to design our bracelet. Afterwards. I will demonstrate you the assembling of the bracelet on people's trend bar. During assembling, we will cover the techniques of crimping, attaching the wire to the strand bar via U-shape class connector and overall finishing of the brainstem. Last but not least, That's kinda toggle clasp to the bracelet. If you find this class helpful, feel free to follow my class so that you can be aware of the new clusters that enforced and speaking about costing, please do post your class projects. And if you will, show me what you have been working on, I would really love to see what other people come up with. So without keeping you waiting any longer, go ahead and roll in this class. Let's get started. 2. Essential Tools and Materials: In this lesson, I'm going to show you the tools which are essential while making this bracelet. Let's get started with the first tool. Firstly, I have picked my pliers so long. No supplier is really essential for the whole brace at making process. The good thing, it comes with tree in one, the tooth at the front, flat nose at the middle, and flush cutter at the end. The second player which I have chosen is the round no supplier for forming loops in the bracelet. The following tools might be useful for cutting the small piece of wire from the loop. However, since the most of the work will be done on tiger tail wire, this tool is an optional. The Caesars at the second most essential tool after pliers. And you need to use the scissors quite often during the process to trim the extra wire from the bracelet. Among the tools, the measuring tape would be the another important item in our list. Since the bracelet lens will be measured by the tape, the current tip comes with dual sided measurement, one side showing in inches, and another one in centimeters. The last, but not least, the whole bracelet will be beaded on the tiger tail wire. The current tiger tail wire thickness is 0.38 a M M. I find this tick. This is the most easy to work with and to beat any kind of brace it. In general, the wire is very strong and you may be assured that it will not tear out easily as long as you crimp it well, well, that's about it. If you have the following tools, you may begin to beat your own bracelet. In the next lesson, I will cover the findings and beats which will be required for the current bracelet. 3. Findings and Beads: Welcome to my another lesson where I'm going to cover the findings and beats the teal color in the brace. It is yellow, or you may also call it gold color with the green bits along with some stones. So clasps are great because they are versatile, easy to use, and can turn any handmade piece of jewelry into an elegant masterpiece. Toggle glass are a popular choice of closure because of how attractive and unique VR they consist of. A metal bar that goes through a loop, usually circular, and keeps a necklace or brace and closed three strand connector or triples trend connector. This beautiful connector will be beginning as well as endpoint of the abrasive to decide with one loop will be used to attach the class. And the other side with the triple loops is for bidding the bracelet. The following item is the jump brings, which is going to be used to attach the connectors and the class, you may choose the yellow color for the team matching. However, I have chosen the silver color for some variation, cream covers. You can use cream covers to hide cream bits when you're making jewelry. They are designed to look just like a spacer beat and are great for adding a decorative touch to finish your project. Finished result should look as though you have added a spatial beat your project. Much more pretty than having a cream bit showing on its own U-shaped clasp connector is a tiny piece of the braces. But it makes a huge difference since it will link the wire to the triple strand connector. And we'll have a huge impact on the end result. For each wire, we need two connectors, so forth, three wires, we require six pieces of U-shaped class connectors. Cream bits are soft metal beads used in the place of knots to secure clasp and bits on to an unalterable stringing materials such as beading wire. For that reason, I have chosen the following cream in 3 M, M c is the brains that will be beaded on three wires. I have decided to make them different from each other and use some creativity. The first wire will consist of this beautiful green color beats. What I love in them is the yellow coat on the green color, which compliments it very well. The green beads will be followed by these Tibetans tiled golden spacers. The hole in the spacer is large. Therefore, I'm not going to add any smaller spacers. Instead, I will add the beads with the following spacers, only. This writer Stone wrong model space or beats with crystals are unique and I believe it will perfectly match with our bids. For the second, third wires, I have picked three different kinds of spacers in golden color. One pendent in double-sided shelf space or beads are essentially there to filled up part of the Nicholas abrasive. Most pieces of jewelry focus on specific pendants, charms of beats. To bring more attention to this pieces. Fillers, beads are typically smaller in size and place between these larger focal points. Curves, spacer, loose tube, Moodle bits for the middle of the bracelet. In order to make it even, I have decided to use this particular one with some double-sided live spacers. For the third line, pick this purple stones where I will form loops and attach it to the last wire and complete the design. Ball had bins are used for making the loops with stones. The color of the hairpins remain as golden for the team color. These were the findings and beads which I have selected for this bracelet. In the next video, I will show you on the wrist size measurement using the measuring tape. 4. Measuring The Wrist Size: Welcome back. In this lesson, we will learn on measurement part. Since the Brexit size is not an adjustable one, the size must be correctly tailored to my wrist. This is the line where I want the brisket to be on. My tip is dual sided. I'm comfortable measuring in centimeters. If you feel inches are good for you, you may go ahead with it. My small trick, which are used to measure without any help, is by placing scotch tape at the beginning. So the scotch tape to my wrist, as you can see, my exact size is 19 centimeters. I want to have some extra space. So I'm aiming for 20 centimeter length. That was the shortest, yet the most important part of bidding. Any braces. Stay tuned for assembling. 5. Assembling The Bracelet 1st Line: Welcome back. This lesson we'll cover the assembling of the first wire and exact measurement of the bracelet size. The Brexit will have three strands and each part will be covered separately since the design will vary from each other. Firstly, let's measure how much space would the class and connect to will occupy so that I can know the exact length of the wire. Together with the clasp and connector, I need approximately 2 centimeters from one side, which overall will be five centimeters. That means I will be left with extra 15 centimeters. I have to beat the bracelet on the tiger tail wire at 15 centimeters, approximately. Now, let's grab our tiger tail wire and three MIT for the beading. Like to have approximately 23 to 24 centimeters so that I can have some extra wire just in case. Moreover, longer is better. The same lens of wire should be cut for three strands. Assembling of the first wire will begin now, basically, each bracelet line will follow the same technique and style. Step 1, grab the wire and the cream, along with U-shaped clasp connector, insert your wire from one side and cross over the top and bring the wire out from the other end. Once the wire is out, attach the triple sram connectors first look to the U-shaped connector. This is how it should look like. Now, bring the cream close to the connector. Scott. Scott. And cream with the help of your player. Once you are assured that the wire is secured enough, covered the cream with the round cream cover. The extra wire, trim it out. Step to mix and match. Grab your beautiful beads and stressors and begin bidding. Ii on the lens of the abrasive. So you do not exceed 15 centimeters or make it shorter than that. Now, it's time to move to the next step. Since the Brexit reached 15 centimeters. Step 3, finishing or attaching the bracelet to the connector using the same method as the beginning connector has three strands or loops. Make sure that you connect it to the right sided, not the opposite. The cream you shipped connector is attach to the end. Space. Slightly pulled the wire inwards, sued the bracelet gets tighter and leaves no empty space of the bracelet lands and tightness is perfect. It's time to log the cream at this place with the help of the round no supplier. Since it has tailored edge, which can easily fit in any place. Basically secure. Now through the extra wire and covered the cream. Well, we have covered one of the major parts of the bracelet in the following class, we will carry on with the second, third lines of the bracelet. Stay tuned. 6. Bracelet Assembling 2nd and 3rd Lines: In this class, I will cover the second, third lines of the bracelet. Let's begin with the center line. The steps and techniques would be similar to the previous one, but the beads and spacers will change. As for the beginning, we will attach the cream and u-shaped class connector to the center of the three pulse trend connector. The design of the line should be simpler, so it does not overshoot line. The first line curves space or loose tube noodle will be inserted and followed by a spacer in-between. Just follow it through until you have reached your desirable length. Once the land is achieved. Let's finish the line, same as the beginning by inserting the cream U-shaped connected to the triples 10 connectors, middle look. Do not forget to put the cream cover for the finishing. The second line is ready. For the last line. I thought of adding the stones. In order to begin that, I'm going to grab this hat pins to make loops on the stones. And why the help of round most flyer from the loops by rolling the pin inwards until it's locked. Follow the same steps until the last one. Now, the actual reading will begin for the last line. Begin with your cream and u-shaped class connector and attach it to the last loop, as we have done it before. Hers, your crimp heart and remove the extra wire and covered the crimp. I have started with curves, spacer, loose tube, Moodle beat with spacers. Meanwhile, I also have divided my stones into three equal parts. So when I make the flowers, it will be equal size and shape. Now, it's time to add the stone to the wire, followed by some spacers in between for the decoration purpose. Do not forget to add the key element to the bracelet, which is double-sided, hadn't in the center, and its neighbor by few spacers from both sides. The last group of stones will be added now. Finished by using the spacers and curves spacer, loose tube noodle be. The last but not least, follow the same steps of wire connecting with the help of the last cream and u-shaped clasp connector and cream cover. When we are done for the bracelet. In the next video, I will show you how to attach the class to the bracelet. 7. Finishing And Attaching The Clasp: We are almost done. Thanks for coming this far. In this lesson, I will show you how to attach the class to the bracelet. For this bracelet, toggle clasp is the perfect match. Since the weight of the bracelet is heavy due to the beads and stones. Therefore, golden color toggle clasp is used. John brings are the most essential, since D will be the ones which will connect them. In order to open the jump ring, grab your supplier, and hold it from one side. By the help of another player, push it to the other side and open it. Make sure you should not openly to the sides, but instead, move it into the opposite directions. Take a bracelet and one side of the toggle clasp and place it inside the jumping. Once it's done, close it the same way how you open this by the help of your pliers. John bring must be well closed and should not have any space. For the another side of the bracelet. We will use the same technique and attached to toggle clasp to the bracelet. The beautiful triples trend bracelet is ready to where you can always use your kind of beats and findings. Through this class, you can learn the techniques which are needed to make such a beautiful bracelet from the scratch. Thank you so much for watching. 8. Conclusion: There you go.
