Red Creek Canyon Bracelet Tutorial
Created by: Amy Mickelson
- Use 8-9.5" of chain. Since the chain is unsoldered, you can open the links instead of cutting. Use two sets of pliers to do this since the links are hard to open.
- Open the links at one end of the chain and add the swivel clasp.
- Cut 4 pieces of 20-gauge wire, each 3-4" in length. On each piece of wire, make a wrapped loop at one end. Add gemstones, glass and metal beads in a random and pleasing design.
- Finish each connector with a wrapped loop, connecting each together before completing the loop. You can alternately use jump rings to attach the 4 connectors together.
- Connect this long grouping to the chain using additional chain links as jump rings.
- There will be about 1.5" of extra chain at the opposite end from the clasp, making the bracelet adjustible.

- Make 25 wrapped loop dangles using the various beads and spacers. Create a unique look by making each one different.
- Again use links from the chain as jump rings and attach them to the bracelet in random locations.
