Designer Tips

  • Remove the clasp from the end of one bracelet, and replace the oval jump ring with a round jump ring.
  • For best way to open and close loops, see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF)
  • Remove the oval jump ring from the opposite end of the other bracelet and replace with a round jump ring.
  • Link the sterling frames together with jump rings in a pattern you like, and attach to the two bracelets with the round jump rings you just added. Clasp the bracelets together to complete the necklace.
  • You will have a sterling silver clasp left over from this to use on another project.
