It’s been a while since I shared a DIY bracelet, so here’s a new one for a sparkly bracelet for the holidays. It’s using a fishbone chain, which I haven’t used before, and sew-on crystal jewels which are the same as the ones I used in this necklace DIY. It is super simple to make, so you can make several and give them out as Christmas/Birthday/No-Reason gifts. [You can use this fun cut-out idea or embellished boxes idea for wrapping your gifts.]

What you’ll need:

  • Gold Fishbone Chain
  • Sew-On Crystal Jewels
  • Jumprings & Clasp
  • Wire Cutter & Jewelry Pliers

Step 1: Measure the fishbone chain to fit tightly around your wrist. Then split that piece into two longer and two shorter pieces. Using the pliers and jumprings, attach the two shorter ones to each side of a crystal jewel. You can attach the fishbone chain either facing each other (like mine in step 1) or facing away from each other (like my second bracelet in the final product shots).

Step 2: Attach the second and third crystal jewels on each of the short fishtail chains using the jumprings. Then add the two longer pieces of the chain to each of the crystal jewels. This time, the chains should face the opposite direction of the first two pieces.

Step 3: Secure one end of the bracelet with a clasp and other with a jumpring for the clasp. And you have your handmade DIY bracelet! You can create other unique pieces by swapping the crystal jewel with other jewel options. One can never have enough accessories!

    Hi there! I just love the bracelet you created with the fishbone chain. It’s one of my favorite things to work with. Recently I made a pair of earrings using fishbone chain. If you want, you can check it out here: http://fortissima-blog.blogspot.be/2014/09/spaanse-olijfjes.html

    LOVE IT! I’m going to try this out after a trip to Michael’s <3

    PS. I think I found something you guys might love! My friend shared it with me, it's called Tree Oath (www.treeoath.com). They sell memory necklaces filled with charms that can be shared by friends, loved ones, or anyone! The perfect gift I think! Better yet, with every order they send a tree seed, and a little cute planter cup so we can plant a tree! They then donate $1 from every sale to youth charity! Check them out:)

    Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

    Happy New Years,
    Steph
