Blue and Silver Bracelet

I saw a bag of these jump rings and decided to pick them up on a whim.


When I googled jump ring bracelets I found some inspiration.  In particular, I like this one from Cassidy's Creations:



I wanted more colour than the all-silver bracelet, but I really liked the multiple jump rings in the chain.  I started with a simple chain of jump rings, alternating single ring then double ring.  Single ring, double ring.  Once I had it as long as I wanted (I did 7 inches long), I went back to the start and added a jump ring and blue bead into the single rings.  


I happened to have a barrel clasp so I used that.  It's tricky to do up on your own.  :)


Here is the final bracelet with matching earrings (and this way you don't have to look at my man hands - when did that happen?).


I'm linking up with these parties:
