How to Make a Fashion Jewelry Bracelet with Wire
- Beads in red, or another color of your preference
- Silver connectors
- Jewelry wire
- Clasp and ring
- Wire cutters
- Flat nose pliers
Organize your beads and silver connectors to create the design you want.
Take the tip of the wire and begin inserting the beads according to your design. When you are done, insert the wire through a crimp, and then through a ring. Next, take the tip of the wire again and insert it back through the crimp in the other direction to create a closed loop. See photo below.
Take the flat nose pliers and squeeze the crimp tightly to secure it. Insert excess wire into the beads.
Take the other end of your bracelet, leave two extra inches of wire and cut the wire. Now, insert the new cut wire end through another crimp, then through a clasp, and back again through the crimp to complete the loop (see photo). Lastly, using the flat nose pliers again to squeeze the crimp tightly to secure it. Show off your bright and bold creation!
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know I enjoy throwing parties. No matter what the size or type, from large family celebrations to small get-togethers with my closest friends, I enjoy spending time with the ones I love, sharing memories, making new ones, and catching up.
The colors of the bracelet inspired a “color red party” and since there is no party without food, here are some “red” ideas.
Cheese entomatadas, a red delicious combination of tortillas, cotija cheese, and a chipotle chile sauce.

And for dessert, we enjoyed colorful raspberry, blueberry, strawberry and yogurt parfaits!
