I have tried to make a jewellery set using translucent (Colored and coated with plastic) gem clips.From a multi colored pack I have chosen 2 colors for this project. I have made a pair of earrings and a bracelet. By just changing the length, this technique can be used to make an anklet and neck piece as well.
Step 1: Materials Required
2.Round Nose plier. But I just used a cutting plier. Round nose plier is easier to bend the wires for beginners.
3.Clasps- Earring Hooks, Fastening clasp of your choice for bracelet.
Step 2: Open up Pink Clips
I have made a scroll pattern out of the pink clips. This requires the clip to be opened up.
Open up the Pink clips and straighten the bends using flat nose plier. I have used 15 pink gem clips. So 15 of them have to be straightened.
Step 3: Scroll
Hold the other end of wire using round nose plier and twist it to form 1 circle. This is used as a hook to hold the other scroll.
Make 15 such scrolls using pink gem clips.
Step 4: Shaping Green Clips.
Making a hook in this pattern is a little tricky. If you dont get it, just twist it around like the 3rd one. It can be stuck to the scroll using super glue.
Step 5: Connect scroll with the leaves
This is done for the 2 green clips with the hook.
For the 3rd one without the hook, Insert the hook of 3 scrolls into the 3 leaves resp.
Step 6: Attach Clasps
For the Earring: The earring hook has to be attached to the hook of the scroll.
Step 7: Connect the Scrolls
One scroll's hook is inserted into the last circle of the other scroll. This is how all the scrolls have to be connected.
Step 8: The Jewellery set
Bracelet: The scroll with the clasp has to be attached to each side of the bracelet as the last scroll unit. Now the bracelet is ready. The bracelet length is 8.5inches.
Anklet: Its same as the bracelet. But it might need a length of 9.5 or 10inches.
Necklace: If you are planning to make a necklace with the pattern, it would need a length of 16inches.
