by craftbits (shellie wilson)

What you need

Bracelet with clasp
assorted beads and scrap items
broken earrings
gemstones
broken necklace chains
jump rings
jewelry wire
round nose pliers

Instructions

This Altered art project shows you how to turn broken jewelry pieces, single earrings and odds and ends into a beautiful altered art junk bracelet.

The key to creating a beautiful altered art bracelet it layers of different items. For this project we used :

broken earrings
broken lengths of necklace chains
Charms
old necklace pendants

and just attached them to the bracelet chain using jump rings.

Oddments of beads have been added using jewelry nose pins that were hand made using lengths of wire. Simply take your length of wire and twist one end into a loop using your round nose pliers. Add your beads and then close the length of wire by forming another loop with your pliers.

Randomly add your oddments to the bracelet chain creating a layered look.
