Amethyst Gemstone Bracelet Tutorial

   Hi, my name is Meghan and I'm from Whatsername Jewelry. Whatsername Jewelry takes up two parts of my life. One is an online Jewelry Shop where I sell hand stamped initial and name jewelry and the other is a Craft & DIY Blog that shares my love for all things handmade with reviews, recipes, and fashion to boot. I'd like to thank Kim for having me today and I wanted to share with her readers not so much a post about me and what I do, but something to that you can take away and make on your own. I first shared this on my blog earlier this month and it is a super-simple DIY on how to make a Gemstone Cuff Bracelet.

   I hope you enjoy the tutorial and when you have the chance, I'd love to see you around the Whatsername Jewelry shop and blog. Now through April 1st, I am offering all A Blackbird's Epiphany Readers 20% off all purchases of $10 or more (excluding shipping) with coupon code BLACKBIRD at checkout. Now, on to the Amethyst Gemstone Cuff Tutorial. 

  I have been making Memory Wire Gemstone Cuff Bracelets for a few years now and wanted to share with you the basics for creating a beautiful gemstone bracelet of your own. All you need are a few basic supplies and the ability to make a basic loop and you will be creating these cuff bracelets in no time.

Memory Wire
Amethyst Gemstone Chips
Flat Nose Pliers
Round Nose Pliers
Wire Cutters

Directions: First, count out five rows of memory wire and cut with wire cutters. Next, make a basic loop at one end of the memory wire. Then, begin sliding the amethyst gemstone chips onto the memory wire and continue adding beads until all the rows of memory wire are covered. To finish the bracelet, create another basic loop at the end. Easy as 1, 2, 3 and you have a beautiful gemstone bracelet you can wear anytime.

   Thank you so much, Meghan! This is a wonderful little tutorial, and I am partial to amethyst myself! Ever since Fable II and I (easily) got my hands onto the Legendary weapon, "Hammerthyst" - a great big hammer with a giant amethyst for a head! Thanks so much for being a sponsor and for contributing this wonderful post ♥
