Fuchsia Pink Coin Pearl Chain Bracelet

I Love Love Love wearing bracelets! And I have to admit, I was getting a little bored with the same-ole designs I was coming up with for myself.

Then I came across a picture on Pinterest where someone had mixed some chain with gemstones. Brilliant I thought and how elegant they looked.

Amazonite Chain Bracelet

I made my first one and upon wearing it, soon realized that it kept turning on my wrist causing the stones to end up on the underside of my wrist. Not exactly the look I was going for in my mind’s eye.

Agate Chain Bracelet

Realizing that I needed some weight on the underside near the clasp, to keep the focal stones from spinning on my wrist, I attached a couple small adornments and whalaa! Problem solved and they even look more special than without the adornments.

Agate Chain Bracelet

I wore a couple to work and quickly got requests for orders 🙂

I found that 1.5 – 2 inches of stones worked best as the focal length followed with at least a couple adornments attached to the clasp side of the closure for balancing weight to keep the bracelet from turning on my wrist.
