While recently drooling over some really cool bracelets and wishing I could afford to drop hundreds on these beauties, on closer inspection, I realized that I already knew how to make these myself!
Although beautiful, these designs are fairly simple and anyone can make these awesome bracelets using one of our tutorials!
1) This stunning multi strand pearl bracelet is gorgeous and elegant, perfect for both night and day. Take a look at our Multi Strand Swarovski and Rhinestone Bracelet DIY for step by step instructions for creating a similar bracelet. This one would be even simpler to make because it is only three strands! Use any color and size of Swarovski Pearls and thread them on Soft Flex beading wire to get a beautiful handmade DIY version.
2) This beautiful Chan Luu style pearl bracelet can be made using our DIY Chan Luu Style Bohemian Wrap Bracelet instructions. Substitute the Czech glass beads with Swarovski Pearls and use any one of our Leather Cords and you too can make this wrap bracelet that will encircle your wrist five times and catch everyone’s eye!
3) Probably my absolute favorite of this collection of bracelets is this uber trendy fringe chain bracelet. It’s also one of the simplest designs to work with requiring only the most basic jewelry skills (such as threading and crimping). Follow the instructions for our DIY Saint Laurent Style Fringe Bracelet, only replace all the bead and charm fringe with your choice of chain.
Here are a few more pictures of this design in a variety of colors:
You can use one color of chain that contrasts with the color of the pearls or you can mix chain colors as well. Mixing gold and silver is a hot trend right now.
I created this similar bracelet using Swarovski Pearls, silver Rolo chain and Jet rhinestone cup chain (for some added sparkle). For a look similar to those above, use much larger pearls and much finer chain.
I also made this matching fringe necklace using the exact same components and technique.
