DIY Jewelmint Paramour bracelet

Would you like your own Jewelmint piece without spending $30 to get it? Well, I have a quick and easy DIY tutorial that will help you make your own Paramour bracelet for a fraction of the price!
What you will need:
Jump rings--you can get these at any craft store for around 3 bucks a pack
A closure--the one pictured above is a twist closure, but I later replaced it with a rod-and-ring closure
A pair of needlenose pliers
7 rings--mix up the metals and styles of the rings for a more authentic piece. You can buy ring sets at any accessory store, I just used a bunch I had from garage sales that were too small.

First, use your pliers to open a jump ring.

Slip a ring onto the jump ring, and use the pliers to close firmly. Make sure there are no gaps in the jump ring--you don't want your bracelet to fall apart on you!

You should end up with something like this.

Repeat this process until all the rings are connected. Attach your closure in the same way.

Here's the finished product!

Layer with some other bracelets for pretty "boho" look!
A tutorial for the left bracelet coming soon!
Let me know if you try this! More to come soon!
