Hello guys, today I am going to show you a very simple way to revamp your old accessories and make beautiful new ones! I know this may seem a lot more complicated than it really is, but I promise this is really really simple. Let’s start.
What you will need for this project:
– a silver or gold clasp depending on the color you chose for your bracelet– a (gold or silver) chain, optional if you recycle the chain from your old necklace
– a plier and a cutter (you can use scissors instead)– and of course your old necklace First of all, mesure the length of your wrist with the chain and remember to not count the length of the crystal you are going to put in. Then you can cut your piece of chain.
Then take your old necklace and take off the crystal you are interested in, as seen in the picture before. Keep the hooks that go with it.
Take the chain you cut before and bend it in to. When you have the middle, take your cutter and open one ring of the chain with it. Insert there the clasp using the plier, as seen in the picture next. It is really simple, you just have to place one side of the chain in the first piece of the clasp, and the other side in the second part of the chain. Once you have inserted both of the parts of the clasp, close the rings with the plier. You should have something that looks like this:
Of course, don’t forget to close both of the hooks. And there you have it ! A beautiful and very simple bracelet using almost everything found in the house.
You can do a lot of versions of this very simple procedure, using smaller ones and putting two of it together, or using two different colors. Here two of the ones I made, using the same necklace you have seen before. I hope you appreciate this article, and project, and we’ll see us very soon !
