For my senior prom, I wanted to make my own bracelet rather than buying one that's run-of-the-mill and detrimental to my wallet. I got a lovely midnight blue prom dress (squeal) for free due to a local program in which high school students can try on and pick out dresses. The program also provided one matching accessory, and I chose a necklace with a star pendant (shown in the title picture). I wanted a bracelet to match this pendant and my dress, hence the star links and dark blue bicone beads.

Step 1: Materials

  • wire (I used 20 gauge silver-colored copper wire.)
  • cylindrical object for making jump rings if you don't already have them
  • pliers
  • beads (I used these bicone beads here.)
  • OPTIONAL: clasps (or you can follow my steps for making them ^^)
<p>Thank you for your nice comment! :) </p>
<p>Wow, it's beautiful!</p>
<p>Thank you for your kind comment! :)</p>
<p>OOOOOOOHHH! This gives me an idea! Using this 'ible I can paint the stars yellow (or wire wrap them with yellow seed beads) and make paopu fruit (Kingdom Hearts I) charms, so I can make Kingdom Hearts inspired jewelry! THANK YOU FOR THIS!!!!!</p>
I can't believe how good those stars look, love the bracelet

<p>So pretty! your wire jewelry making skill amazes me!</p>
<p>Thanks so much for your nice comment! Your skills are similarly amazing! ;)</p>
<p>Wow so pretty! I definitely would not be able to freehand those!</p>
<p>Thank you so much for your nice comment! It's not actually as hard as it may seem, so I encourage you to go out on a limb and try it out. *wink*</p>
<p>That looks wonderful! I couldn't freehand a star if my life depended on it!</p>
<p>The stars are actually easier than they look, and practice definitely makes perfect in this case (from what I experienced)! Also, for drawing or sketching stars in general, what I find helpful is drawing five points in a pentagon formation first before connecting them by drawing in the five corners of the star. Just a tip for your next star-sketching adventure. ;)</p>
