Jump rings are useful to make connections and are essential in chain mail designs. But have you ever thought of using them differently?
Lesley of the Gossiping Goddess blog did. Her jump ring and seed bead bracelet tutorial is very easy to make. Her clever idea of alternating and offsetting the jump rings with the beads creates a great effect.
Do hop over to her blog and see the other fabulous example where she used the basic technique for a necklace. The way she attached the beaded portion at the clasp ends is pretty cool too!
Lesley also has an Etsy store called THEA Jewellery (she is from the UK) where she sells an eclectic mix of designs including these bracelets.
