We’ve used Pearls to create this beautiful bracelet as they are attached with so much history surrounding weddings and they are connected to so many elegant figures, past and present. In Ancient Rome, they believed that Pearls were a sign of social status and a luxurious life, they also believed that Pearls would promote a long and healthy life.

Note:- You will need to make up rosary link pearl components that graduate using the wrapped loop technique.

How To Do The Wrapped Loop Technique:

1

Step One

Put a small pearl on a headpin and holding the headpin with the round nose pliers to create a space above the pearl (this will leave room for your wraps) bend the head pin to a right angle.

2

Step Two

Move the pliers as the picture shows.

3

Step Three

Push the headpin over the top prong of the pliers so that it is facing towards you.

4

Step Four

Reposition the pliers (using the same point of the pliers to make your loops consistent) bend the headpin to point downwards.

5

Step Five

Continue to bend the headpin so that it now points away from you.

6

Step Six

At this point add on your pearl wrapped loop element so the it sits in the loop.

7

Step Seven

Place one prong of the pliers back into the loop and wrap the wire all the way around the headpin at the base of the loop you have just made.

8

Step Eight

Wrap the wire all around the headpin again creating two wraps and cut away the excess wire close to the wraps. Press down any sharp edges the flat nose pliers
