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!
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)
Begin by using a little E6000 glue to add your first end cap. Let it dry… for at least an hour or so.
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.
Continue stringing (and pushing them together) until you reach the end.
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.
Add a clasp to one side…
And a jump ring to the other… and you are done!
It looks great! I really love this idea 🙂
I love this! It looks so expensive and chic!
I love this, you seriously need to sell your diy projects 🙂
This is really cool–I love how tough it looks!
Grace – I really really love this! I think I am going to try it this weekend. Thanks!
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?
No pulling… They are tight enough not to!!!
I am usually too lazy for DIY but this is too simple not to try!
what a great idea! i love how the finished product looks. this is definitely one i’m going to have to try. thanks! xo
This is so cute, and looks like something I could actually accomplish!!
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?
I buy a lot online but I also love New York Beads!
Love. And love your end cap find.
How simple! But so lovely!
really cool! would love to make one in gold and one in rose gold and stack them up.
Life on the Squares
such a simple but good idea– would’ve never thought of this. do you ever go to brooklyn charm? obsessed with that place! xo
You have such great ideas! Love!
Cute! It looks way more complicated than it is – I love that
Awesome DIY! What diameter rope did you use?
Great idea! Simple but chic.
Looks great! What color nail polish is that?
Love it! Already made mine in silver this morning. I used a piece of leather rope for mine that I had laying around, made it easy to string the rings on. Love your DIY’s!! Thanks for the inspiration!
This is the greatest idea! It does look very expensive.
what nail polish are you using? love it!
it’s CND Shellac in the coral shade! 🙂
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
Where did you find the end caps? I’ve been looking everywhere!
Hi Libby! I link to the source in my post… you can get them online!
love this project my daughters and i are going to make one each however we found all the material except for the rope can you tell me where i can purchase that item. thanks
Hi Monique! I link to the rope in my post… I got mine from Amazon.com 🙂
looks simple yet classy and has so many possibilities – different sizes, colors, dangles..pining it
I think i overinvested in jump rings so this is a good way to use then up! Either that or a chainmail DIY 🙂
The best site for inspiration!
Love it. Haven’t made it yet, but I will. I just like the design.
This is gorgeous I have got to make it thank you
Love, Love, Love…
Where and what size rope do you use? Thank you.
