Gilded Tibetan Bracelet

About this design:

I enjoy adding Tibetan focals into a design, they have worldly look about them. The classic blue lapis and gold embellishments enhance each other.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need 1ft of chain, 1 clasp, (6) 8mm large-hole faceted gemstones, 18 gauge wire, 1 tibetan oval coin, and 6 spacer beads.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Slide your beads onto a 4" piece of wire, loop the ends of the wire onto your chain to create a loop. Wrap the excess wire around and trim. Do the same with the wire on the other side. Now you can attach your clasp.

    On the Gilded Tibetian Bracelet, I would be very interested in
    knowing what kind of clasp was used . I couldn’t see it very well.
