DIY: Jump Ring “Coil” Bracelet

Jump-RIng-Bracelet---final

This coil bracelet looks like a masterpiece (or at least something you’d buy for quite a bit more money) until you get close and realize that it is actually just a ton of jump rings, strung tightly together to look like a more elaborate piece.  Drying time aside, it will take you maybe ten minutes to make.  This one has been a constant companion to my personal bracelet stack… it goes with everything!

For extra credit, make this in rose gold + silver and wear all three together!

Coils-Bracelet---Materials

Materials:  E6000 Glue // 300 or so 10mm Brass Jump Rings // Clasp

Two Brass Barrel End Caps // Rope (use about 1/2″ less than you’d like your bracelet to be)

Jump-Ring-Bracelet---1

Begin by using a little E6000 glue to add your first end cap.  Let it dry… for at least an hour or so.

Jump-Ring-Bracelet-2

Begin threading on jump rings, as if they were beads.  Note:  it may be easier to add a little bit of tape to the end of your rope for quicker stringing.

Jump-Ring-Bracelet-3

Jump-Ring-Bracelet-4

Continue stringing (and pushing them together) until you reach the end.

Jump-Ring-Bracelet-5

When you get to the end, cut your rope.  Fill your end cap with E6000 Glue and press the end of the rope into the cap.  Press firmly for a good 30 seconds, and then allow to dry for another hour or so.

Jump-Ring-Bracelet-8

Add a clasp to one side…

Jump-Ring-Bracelet-9

And a jump ring to the other… and you are done!

    This is so pretty! I am definitely going to make one – do the rings pinch or pull your arm hair at all or are they tight enough not to?

    Grace- I love your tutorials! I’m always overwhelmed with the bead stores/ trimming stores in Manhattan. Do you typically order your supplies online, or do you have a go-to place in the city?

    Thanks!

    I agree with all that who have commented about your wonderful Idea of jump rings, even if you made them with a little smaller rope/leather or to what ever your base was going to be. The designing of several in different shades, how neat is that, ah! I wonder if you could make this bracelet out of small Hex nuts or small washes, anyway just a thought??? thank u for sharing I’m sure you have alot of us new idea’s, to try out Regards Ree
