Today give you some ways to make unique bracelet and rings, so it’s a cinch to make this imitation cartier jewelry. Eye pins link easily through the wire loops on either end of the beads to quickly form a beaded chain. The silver heart clasp adds a fun-loving touch to the finished bracelet.
one • Link the clasp to the first wired bead in the bracelet with a jump ring
two • Link the first wired bead to an eye pin loop and slide a non-wired bead onto the eye pin. Clip the eye pin wire to about ³⁄8″ (1cm) above the bead with wire cutters.
three • Turn a loop in the eye pin wire and link another wired bead to it. Continue to link wired beads and non-wired beads on eye pins until you reach a total beaded length of 7½” (19cm).
four • Slide a small E bead onto a 6mm jump ring and link it to the final bead in the cheap VCA Alhambra bracelet.
Beautiful stone beads are simply paired with silver cone ends and silver clasp to make this subtle replica pomellato nudo ring. Look for long strands of polished stones in bead stores that will provide enough beads for five separate strands. Consider switching the beads to your favorite stones, black obsidian or translucent rose quartz.
one • Attach five 8½” (22cm) strands of wire to the looped end of an eye pin with no. 1 crimp tubes (use one crimp tube for each wire). Flatten each crimp tube with the crimping pliers to secure the wires. Trim away the wire tails with wire cutters.
two • String five seed beads onto the beginning of each strand. (The seed beads will be hidden inside the cone ends when the bracelet is finished.) Continue beading the strands with the yellow turquoise rounds until the total beaded length reaches about 5¾” (15cm).
three • String five more seed beads onto the end of each wire and attach the wires to the loop end of the second eye pin with crimp tubes.
four • Thread the eye pin through the cone and form a loop in the wire with round-nose pliers. Repeat on the other end of the replica van cleef & arpels jewelry.
five • Thread the circle end of the toggle onto the eye pin loop and wrap the tail of the wire around the base of the loop to secure it (see Techniques, page 16). Repeat with the bar end of the toggle clasp on the other side of the bracelet.
six • Attach the pendant to the toggle clasp loop with a jump ring.
