Step 1: Identify Needed Materials for Bracelet and Earrings
2. Metal links (two small chains each consisting of seven links)
3. Two wires that each have a larger bottom for a bead to set on
4. Two earring hooks
5. String (preferably elastic)
7. Jewelry pliers
Any of these supplies are at local retail stores or craft stores. When I bought the links, they came in long chains so I had to cut them with scissors to get the proper length. The best type of string to use for the bracelet is elastic string because it will be less likely to come apart once tied.
Step 2: What You Will Need for the Bracelet
2. Beads (Leave two of the small round, blue beads for the earrings along with the 2 large, white open circle beads).
Step 3: Starting the Bracelet
The first step in making a bracelet is to cut the string with the scissors to the needed length for the wrist that will wear it. Make sure that when the string is cut, it is about an inch longer that what it needs to be for the size of the actual bracelet. For example, if the wrist requires a five-inch long string, cut it at six inches. This will allow room to tie knots on the bracelet. (The length will determine how many beads are needed as well).
Step 4: Tie the First Knot on the String
Step 5: Add Beads to the String
Step 6: Complete the Bracelet
Step 7: What You Will Need for the Earrings
2. Two small, round beads
3. Two large, open circle beads
4. Metal links (two small chains each consisting of seven links)
5. Two wires that each have a larger bottom for a bead to set on
6. Jewelry Pliers
Step 8: Starting the Earrings
Using the jewelry pliers, bend the top of the wire into a partial loop shape. This means that the hook is not closed all of the way yet.
Step 9: Add the Chain of Links
Step 10: Put the Earring Together
Repeat these same steps to make the other earring.
