  • Bracelets out of bikes!

    A friend of mine is going to start making braclets out of recycled bike chains - he was asking me last night about a shuitable clasp. needs to be quite chunky and 'blokey' - anyone got any ideas?

    I don't know about the clasps but I do remember wearing such a piece of jewellery in my Uni days! There were quite popular for a while in the alternative scene.

      I would probably make one if I were you. It is the most reliable way to get a clasp to blend with your creation. If he has the tools available to link chains and cut them, he should be able to make a clasp.

        I made a clasp with DIY chain from homebase for about £1.99 p/m -they also sell chain in black

        howlite bracelet on my site Can't remember how i wrapped it, but just made sure it wouldnt slip apart, and added an extra bit just incase.

        Also if you can solder the metal it should look more seamless.

          The drive chain bracelet I had years ago was held closed by a split link that chains used to have I remember I had to use my key or pen knife to pop it off. modern bikes don't use split links now but it should be easy enough to make up something of the like
