These simple and pretty DIY Summer Layered Bracelets and Gorgeous Watch make such great summer accessories!
I love layering bracelets, especially in the summer. They are such a pretty way to add a little color and style to a simple outfit! These bracelets are easy to but together, even if you’ve never made jewelry before. And I’ve paired them with the most gorgeous Jord watch that look great with any outfit.
Don’t they look great together?
Here’s what you’ll need to make these simple bracelets:
- Cotton Cording
- Focal Beads
- Gold Tubing
- gold chain – a large chain and a small chain
- small gold jump rings
- post and eye closures
- cording ends
- coordinating tassels
For the Pearl and Chain Bracelet – start with the center pearl beads. Add a length of large gold chain to one side.
Add the chain to the other side as well.
Wrap the chain around your wrist and add about 1″. Cut the chain on each side. Thread the blue cording through the chain, going over and under each link. It helps to add a bit of tape to the end so that it goes through the chain more easily.
Finish each end of the cording with gold cording ends. You’ll want the holes of the cording ends the same length as the chain.
Add both the cording end and the chain to a jump ring and one end of the closure.
Repeat for the other side and the other end of the closure.
Add the tassel to the chain, a couple links in from the end.
That’s it – one bracelet down!
The Crystal bracelet is super easy too! Just add a length of chain on each side of the center bead and a closure on each end. Add a tassel to this one to add a little more color!
For the gold tubes – thread a length of cording through a tube. Measure your wrist and add about 1/2″. Add cording ends to each end. Repeat for two more, then add each of the ends to a jump ring, with a closure on each end. Super easy cording bracelet!
These look great all layered together!
They go perfectly with my new Jord watch as well! I have been wanting a wooden watch for ages and I love how pretty this Fieldcrest Maple watch is. It’s so light and I love that it will go with so many outfits.
So fun for Summer right??
