DIY Handpiece

This season, we’ve been seeing the hand piece as a must have fashion accessory..It’s simple and a tad bit edgy at the same time, and something you can actually wear all day everyday..To make you own, the way you like it, you will need:

• A thin chain to create the ring portion of the handpiece
• A thicker chain to make the bracelet section
• 3 small jump rings
• 2 thicker jump rings
• 1 lobster claw clasp
• 2 pliers
• A pair of cutters to cut the chain

Cut one piece of the thin chain 2.75″ long. This will fit around your middle finger. Then, cut two 4″ pieces of the thin chain, this will be the chain that connects the bracelet portion to the ring.

Now for the bracelet portion, take the thick chain, wrap it around your wrist, and cut it about 1/2″ shorter than your wrist length to leave room for the lobster claw.

Attach all the smaller chains together: Open up one of the smaller jump rings and loop the shorter piece of chain and connect the jump ring on both ends. This is the ring portion.

Don’t close the jump ring yet though; add the two longer strands of the thin chain to the same jump ring. Slide those through then close the jump ring.

Grab the thick chain you cut for the bracelet portion and find the middle. Now from the middle, go out about 3/4″ on each side; this is where you’ll be connecting the thin chain to the thick chain.

Attach a jump ring to the one of the two points you just found and string one of the thin chains to that jump ring.

Repeat the same step on the other side.

Attach the lobster claw on the end of the bracelet using the larger jump ring. Add a plain jump ring to the other end for the lobster claw to hook onto.

Here you go! You got yourself a handpiece made just like you want it to be!

Stay awesome!
