Asymmetrical Infinity Link Chain Bracelet

A Jewelry Design 1 Project

Forming – Assembly

Impress your friends with this unique bracelet!  These great asymmetrical infinity links are formed from two teardrop rollback loops that meet up perfectly, which is a primary element taught in the Jewelry Design 1 curriculum.  If you haven’t taken that class yet, have no fear as I supply measuring charts derived from my personal tools.  (Please note: Your tools may vary slightly from mine which is the import of the JD 1 instruction on how to chart for your own tools)  Once you form 6 links, I will show you how to connect them with beads and jump rings culminating in this visually stimulating bracelet that looks like a million bucks!
