Retired - The Mermaid's Tale Bracelet

Instructions

Begin by using your round nose pliers to curl the points on the Decorivet pieces down until the meet the underside of each one.Link each of these segments together using oval jump rings, as shown in the picture.Use an additional oval jump ring to attach the lobster clasp to the pointed end of the bracelet.Gently pry open the last Decorivet loop at the opposite end of the bracelet and add an 8mm closed gunmetal jump ring to it before closing once more.Glue on your rhinestones by placing each one down on the bracelet as shown in the photographs, and then lifting each one up carefully, spreading a tiny amount of E6000 on the back with a toothpick or a piece of wire, and gently pressing it into place once more. Allow to dry for twenty-four hours before wearing.Customize this bracelet by substituting the hematite rhinestones for a different color.
Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.
