Make this Easy DIY Seashell Bracelet without drilling holes into the shells.
Grab a handful of small seashells and your favorite beachy color nail polish and I’ll show you how to make a beautiful seashell bracelet.
Use a chain you have or buy one like I did at the craft store. You can also pick up beautiful vintage chains at an antique store or thrift store for just a few dollars.
If you’ve never made your own jewelry there are a few things you’ll need to know, but not to worry, I’ll walk your through everything. So let’s get started!
Supplies You’ll Need
- Small seashells
- Chain (existing bracelet or bulk chain)
- Small beads (to glue to top of shells to connect a jump ring)
- Jump rings and a lobster clasp
- Jewelry Pliers – Needle Nose, Round Nose and Wire Cutters
- Nail polish
- E6000 Adhesive
How to Make Your Own DIY Seashell Bracelet
Start by painting small seashells with nail polish. Paint the front and let them dry. Then paint the backs. Get creative and paint them any color you’d like. Let dry completely before continuing.
Use E6000 and tweezers to place/glue a small bead onto the top of each shell. Use a small bead but one that has a large enough hole that you can feed a jump ring through. Let dry overnight before continuing.
Next use Wire Cutter Pliers to cut your chain to the desired length. I cut the chain for my bracelet 7.25-inches long.
Feed a jump rings through each bead at the top of the shells and use your needle nose pliers to squeeze/close the ring to attach to your chain.
Last use a jump ring to attach a lobster clasp to the end of the chain.
