Ever wonder how they make those awesome spiral /coil Egyptian bracelets? Well so did I. I went searching and I found only two sets of directions. Both were terrific, but as I was working, I wondered if there was an easier way to assemble them. I was having trouble getting the links hooked together after I made them. So I came up with a way that works better and easier for me, and maybe it will be better for you too.
I know you have all seen these gorgeous closed link bracelets and wondered, could I make that? Well yes you can, and I am going to show you how.
A closed link technique can be used to make all kinds of chain designs, from these bracelets to earrings and full necklaces. It is one technique repeated over and over to make the chain. The difficult part is remembering to capture the last bead when making the new link. But if that happens just catch it in the next link, or making a matching set of earrings to go with the bracelet or necklace.
