Rose-printed beads are perfect for a gorgeous, handmade spring bracelet. Make this for yourself or as a beautiful gift for a friend!
Skills Required: Beginner. You should have some prior experience with jewelry tools for easy assembly, otherwise this is a very basic bracelet.
Now is the time of year when I love to go for walks in the neighborhood and “flower-gaze.” Big perennial bushes are proudly showing off their new spring blooms. Tulips are happening . . . daffodils have already taken their final bow and are getting ready for next year.
Springtime is perfect for floral-everything. When I was digging through my boxes of jewelry-bits, I came across these rose-printed beads and knew that they would be perfect for a spring bracelet.
Those who know me, know I love gold.
I chose a heavy chain for this bracelet; I like weight in a bracelet these days. Thin chains are fine and dainty, but I want this bracelet to be noticed when my hands are animatedly moving during a good conversation.
Yeah. I’m a hand-talker. I can’t be the only one, right?
Make a Bracelet for Spring
To make your own spring bracelet, you will need:
- 1 length of gold chain
- Wire cutting pliers
- Flat nosed pliers
- Round nosed pliers
- Beads of your choosing (mine are from Michaels)
- Gold eyepins
- Gold jump rings
- Gold clasp (I used a toggle)
The charms were easily created using my round nosed pliers and gold eye pins.
In no time at all, I had created quite a few!
Using measured lengths of gold chain, I fastened the bracelet by connecting the chain to the charms using jump rings.
My spring bracelet came together very quickly.
I love a toggle clasp. I think it’s such a timeless way to finish off a piece. And I also find it fairly easy to do up myself.
Those of you who have done that awkward elbow to the sky, twist-around-while-you’re-trying-to-do-up-your-bracelet dance will appreciate the simplicity of the toggle clasp.
Whether you’re going to gift it – or keep it for yourself – this spring bracelet is a pretty way to celebrate the blooms and colors of the season.
