Wired Beads Bracelet
These beads come already wired, so it’s a cinch to make this replica van cleef & arpels bracelet. 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 fake van cleef & arpels clover 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 replica van cleef & arpels alhambra bracelet.
To make this variation, simply link the wired beads together with beaded jump rings until you reach the total beaded length you like.
Ring and Wire Bracelet
This variation uses jump rings threaded with colorfule beads to connect the wired beads into a imitation van cleef & arpels bracelet. Always remember to open jump rings laterally to help retain their shape.
