How to make 5 bracelets in 10 minutes

How to make 5 bracelets in 10 minutes
Today I would like to show you 5 different techniques to make some nice and easy bracelets. I wanted new bracelets and a lot of them so I made these very quickly. The best thing about these bracelets is that if you're crafty you'll make them for free because they can be made with what you have in your stash:left-over pieces from other DIY projects, little pieces of ropes, some yarn and so on. These bracelets are quick to make and you can have fun making them in every color! Let's start! Yarn bracelet : I made a tiny loop with the rope, blocked with thread and needle and then I just wrapped the colored yarn around. Crystal bracelet : I made a loop with the rope and blocked it with thread and needle then I put the crystal chain over the rope and I wrapped the yarn around both. Ball chain bracelet: I made a loop with the rope and blocked it with thread and needle then I put the ball chain over the rope and I wrapped the yarn around both.

Double Spiral Bracelet There are two jewelry wire components that we need to make for this bracelet. The first wire component is the double spiral wire component that it the major link in this bracelet. To make this jewelry wire component we use pegs 1 through 7 in a pattern on our WigJig jewelry tool as shown below. The second jewelry wire component that we must make is the 2-1 end component. This is the component that connects to the commercial clasp on one end and becomes the catch for the clasp on the opposite end.
