DIY: Jump Ring “Coil” Bracelet


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!

    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?

  10. 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 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
