Step 9: Add findings to keep it on your wrist
Lay the bracelet down, woven side up, and drill two holes on each (short) end. Make the holes about 1/2" apart. I didn't measure, because...repeat after me...I HATE to measure!
This next part...Sorry...I couldn't get pic's of it, since I was taking the pic's myself and needed two hands to perform these tasks. If you look at the pic's, I think you should be able to figure out what I'm about to jabber about...
Gently open up four jump rings and put through each of the holes. Take a pull tab (pop tab) and hang it over the two jump rings on each end (there are two openings on the pull tab - one over each jump ring), then using the pliers again, close up the jump rings. You now have a pull tab on each end of the bracelet.
Gently work on the bracelet to get a curve in it. I put it on my wrist and gently pushed it down under my wrist a few times. Work it until you have a good curve.
Using two more jump rings: open one and put it through one of the holes on the pull tab at one end of the bracelet, then close it. Open the other jump ring, put it through the the small loop on the lobster clasp, then through a hole on the pull tab at that end of the bracelet, then close it.
I found that fastening the lobster clasp BEFORE putting the bracelet on was the easiest way to do it. Since I was alone...and didn't have anyone to clasp it for me. My dexterity isn't what it once was. :(
And there you have it!
There are many different colors in soda and drink cans these days. If you see one with colors you love...use it!
Please be gentle with me! This is my first Instructable. I am, of course, open to constructive criticism. I am a bit tough skinned....but...
Thanks for viewing!
