Cosmic rings bracelet

Use uncommon crystals in a distinctive bracelet-and-earrings set

Two crystal cosmic rings stacked together make a prominent focal piece for an easy bracelet. The faceted rings create a fancy contrast to casual leather cord. Add a quick pair of earrings for a just-right balance of edgy and elegant.

INSTRUCTIONS

Cosmic rings bracelet 1
Step 1
Cut a 10-in. (25cm) piece of leather cord. Center two cosmic rings. Over both ends, string two or three soldered jump rings or decorative rings.

Step 2
With both ends, tie an overhand knot next to the rings. Repeat steps 1 and 2.

Step 3
On each side, trim the ends to within 1 in. (2.5cm) of the finished length and apply glue. Place the ends in a crimp end and use chainnose pliers to gently squeeze the crimp end.

Step 4
Open a jump ring and attach a loop of a crimp end and a lobster claw clasp. Close the jump ring. Repeat on the other end, substituting a soldered jump ring or decorative ring for the clasp.

Design alternative
Feeling square? In this version, I used square cosmic rings, square decorative rings, and a square crystal for the dangle. I substituted four 1mm pieces of leather cord for the two 2mm pieces.
Tip!
  • Select the 30mm crystal cosmic rings first, since there are fewer colors available in this size than in smaller sizes.
  • Before placing the leather ends in a crimp end, make sure to trim both ends evenly.
