Silk Wrap Bracelets ~ A few weeks ago I mentioned to you that Gabrielle had been working on a fabulous school project that I couldn’t wait to share with you. I’m so excited to share it with you today or I should say I’m very excited that Gabrielle will be sharing it with you today! She worked really hard on her project and her hard work paid off.
Hello I’m Gabrielle! I’m Christine’s daughter. I just turned 9 on Monday! I’m very happy to be here today to share with you my Silk Wrap Bracelet Tutorial, which was my end of year school project. My teacher and my friends really enjoyed my project, I’m hoping that you will too. Here’s a collage of what my project looked like:
What do you think of my setup? It was very fun to put together. I even showed my friends my Mom’s blog so that they can see other tutorials I have shared on her blog like my Chunky Bead Bracelets. I bet you’re excited to see the tutorial in detail, so here we go:
Silk Wrap Bracelets
– Flat nose pliers
– Round nose pliers
– Wire cutters
– Silk ribbon
– Jump rings
– Pin needle findings
Step 1: Thread a jump ring onto the silk ribbon.
Step 2: Take out a pin needle finding and insert a bead on it.
Step 3: Use the flat nose pliers to bend the pin needle finding to a 90 degree angle.
Step 4: Use wire cutters to cut off some of the length from the pin needle finding. (If it’s too long your loop will be too big.)
Step 5: Take out the round nose pliers and use them to roll the pin needle finding into a loop. (Do not close it completely yet!).
Step 6: Place the loop onto the jump ring on your silk ribbon.
Step 7: Now you can close the loop using round nose pliers. (The bead is now secure onto your bracelet.
Step 8 (optional): If you have charms that you would like to put on your bracelet: you can use flat nose pliers to open their jump rings and attach them onto the bracelet. Don’t forget to close the jump rings to secure them onto the bracelet. Also some charms come with lobster attachments, which means you can just open them and attach them immediately onto your bracelet!
Step 9: Place the jump ring with all the charms in the middle of your ribbon and tie a knot to secure it in place.
Step 10: Wrap the bracelet around your wrist and make a knot!
I hope you enjoyed my project!
If you have any questions, please ask them.. it will be my pleasure to try to answer them for you.
