While I waited for my Bezel Effects paints to dry (see Part one from last week), I deconstructed a disk-style bracelet and added some holes to the hinges where they were needed. Along with some jump rings, these were the materials I needed to make this hinge bracelet which will feature some of the Bezel Effects cabochons that I made.
1. Separate the bracelet into 3 sections with 2 disks each. Keep the clasp attached to 1 section. Save the rest of the chain for another project.
2. Use PJ Tool's two-hole punch to add holes as needed to the hinges.
3. This shows the chain from the back. I used 2 jump rings on each end to attach the chain to the hinges.
4. Here's what it looks like from the front.
5. And here is the completed hinge bracelet frame. Add more jump rings if you need more length as you work.
Next week, I'll show you how the Bezel Effects cabochons work with this bracelet!
