Mixed-metal bracelet

Attach jump rings in Byzantine chain
Mixed metal bracelet

Though you can vary the gauge and size of the jump rings in this bracelet, I like 18-gauge, 3⁄16-in. (4.8 mm) inside-diameter rings because they make a lush weave. (Thinner jump rings yield a bracelet that’s too airy.) Try jump rings in anodized aluminum; they’re reasonably priced and available in a variety of brilliant colors.

Supplies

Note: I used aluminum jump rings; I refer to them as “bronze” and “silver” for convenience. The quantities below make a 7-in. (18 cm) bracelet.

  • 111 18-gauge, 3⁄16-in. (4.8 mm) inside-diameter (ID) jump rings, 54 bronze, 57 silver (Blue Buddha Boutique, 866.602.7464, bluebuddhaboutique.com; bronze, $4.50 for 100; silver, $3 for 100)
  • toggle clasp
  • 2 pairs of chainnose pliers

Jump rings also available from The Ring Lord, theringlord.com.

Tip!
  • Use an awl to help you lift and separate the jump rings.
  • If you get confused, remember that you will always attach a pair of jump rings to a pair in a different color (i.e., you’ll attach a silver pair to a bronze pair, and vice versa).
