Citrus Blossom Bracelet

About this design:

African recycled glass flowers pushed me into summer mode. These fun florals are full of character and vibrant color. I used a clasp to clip onto the last jump ring on one side. This way you can wear it as a necklace or wrap around your wrist as a bracelet.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need African recycled glass flowers, jump rings, paperclip chain, multi African bead strand one 2-3mm and one 4-7mm, and a clasp.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Connect as many flowers as you want together with the twisted jump rings. Attach both chains to your last jump ring on one side. Attach both ends of chains to a jump ring then connect the jump ring to your clasp. Use your clasp to clip onto the last jump ring on the other side. This way you can wear it as a necklace or wrap around your wrist as a bracelet.
Step 2:
For the seed bead bracelet in between the chains, I just strung the 4-7mm beads onto Chinese knotting cord. Then created an adjustable knot. Follow the tip below to create the perfect adjustable knot.
Step 3:
For the necklace version trim the chain to your desired length. Hang the flowers on with the satin gold jump rings. Just attach your clasp and done.
