DIY Delicate Infinity Bracelet


When you're in the middle of a heat wave, like we are right now in DC, and you need just a touch of jewelry that won't get hot and sticky, try an easy, dainty DIY bracelet that can be mixed with others for a stacked look or worn solo for a delicate look. It's supposed to be 98 degrees tomorrow (temperature, not Nick Lachey, silly), so I'll be wearing this DIY bracelet so I still look put together despite the heat.



Tools and materials
1 foot of fine box chain, cut in two 6 inch pieces (if you have a smaller wrist, you may want to shorten the pieces. I found mine a bit loose, so I trimmed accordingly.)
Jewelry pliers
Super glue


Put a tiny drop of glue inside the fold over end. Tip: Use a toothpick or pin for less mess in applying the glue.


Put the ends of one of the chains in the fold over end, then close the sides around the chain with pliers.


Repeat with the second piece of chain and fold over end, but loop the chain through the first piece of chain before closing in the end.


Attach the jump rings and clasp with pliers.


Enjoy!

  6. That looks pretty simple! Do you find that the glue and pinching the fold over ends are strong enough? I know your post says delicate! I'm just so clumsy with jewelry! Thanks

    1. Hi Becca! it's held up to wear so far, so I guess delicate was meant more a delicate look, than delicate to handle : )
