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 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 you through everything. So let’s get started!
- Small seashells
- Chain (existing bracelet or bulk chain)
- Small beads (to glue to the 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 A 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.
Use Wire Cutter Pliers to cut your chain to the desired length. I cut the chain for my bracelet 7.25 inches long.

Feed jump rings through each bead with the chain attached and use needle nose pliers to close the ring.
Last use a jump ring to attach a lobster clasp to the end of the chain.
