1. first i took a few chains i had lying around. one red enamel covered, one gold bar link and one antiqued silver plate. any combination of links with plenty of loops would work fine.
2. i attached them all at both ends to lobster clasp and a larger jump ring at the other
3. i connected the three chains together at two other points to keep them strong and centered.
4. then i just started adding random broken earrings and buttons with jumprings. making sure i closed each jump ring carefully so i wouldn't lose any items and they wouldn't snag my clothes (or skin..eeesh). for the buttons, i wrapped some wire through them, made a loop in the back and coiled the rest of the wire around the loop for strength. i used a jump ring to then attach to the chains.
this took quite some time to keep adding and then picking the bracelet up to plan my next move.
occasionally attaching some items to more than one of the chains helps in stabelizing the shape of the bracelet.
i suggest getting a small sheet of foam core or maybe thick cardboard (but i think foam core would be best) and a couple of pins. then you can attach the bracelet and voila free hands for attaching items.
you can add as much or as little. but i added a lot to get this look.
ideas for objects:
single earrings from a missing pair
random found objects that have a loop
old charms from childhood necklace
beads of various or single color for filler
i'll try to recreate the making and take pics to add later.
this was my first tutorial, so i hope its understandable.
