labradorite toggle bracelet

Elevate your DIY accessories with this Labradorite Toggle Statement Bracelet made with beautiful semi-precious beads. Mix textures of shine, metal and frost to get a unique look.
Step 1

Remove a five-link section from the chain.
TIP: To remove the links, simply grasp both sides of the fifth link from the end with chain nose pliers and twist the link open, from side-to-side. Never pull it open which can cause distortion.

Step 2

Add the loop on the bar piece of the toggle and close the link.

Step 3

Cut a 24" [60.96 cm] piece of thread. Fold it in half and add to the link on the opposite end of the five with a lark’s head knot.
TIP: For a lark’s head knot, place the fold underneath the link. Bring the end of the thread over the outside of the link and thread through the fold. Pull the ends so the fold is flush against the link and the even strands are hanging down from the link.

Step 4

Hold the two strands together and add a collapsible needle.

Step 5

String on your beads: five Labradorite beads, five metal beads, five glass spike beads, five more metal beads and five Labradorite beads.

Step 6

Remove the needle from the thread.

Step 7

Remove another three-link chain section and add the loop from the oval part of the toggle and close the link.

Step 8

Tie the link on the other end of the bracelet with the excess thread. Tie as close as you can against the last bead.

Step 9

Use the needle to tuck the excess thread into the last bead.

Step 10
Add glue to the thread on each end of the beads. Let dry.
TIP: The nozzle on the glue fits nicely inside the bead to add glue.
