{FREE PROJECT} Crystal Cuffs & Bangles

A couple of weeks ago, we showed you how to make this quick and sassy bracelet using our new Crystal Cup Chain. We started playing around even more and came up with two additional projects that bring a lot of bling in just a few minutes -- crystal cuffs and bangles.


We even put together a free video tutorial to teach you the technique! As always, you can buy all the tools and materials at Beaducation.com. Here's what you'll need:

2mm or 4mm Crystal Cup Chain
Sterling Silver Flat Wire or Bracelet Blanks
Gold or Silver Plated Flat Bangles
24g Wire
Screw Down Hole Punch
Chain Nose Pliers
Flush Cutters

Lisa Niven Kelly is a master at working with wire and this project is easy enough for a beginner. She shows a few different options for these bracelets, depending on how neatly you want your wire wrapped and if you choose a bangle or a cuff. You could also substitute thread or hemp cord in place of the wire. So many variations!
