Flower Eight Bracelet Jewelry Tutorial



  • Bracelet length: 8 Inches
  • Closure: Hook
  • Style: Art deco

Learn how to make your own Flower Eight Bracelet at home with this instructional tutorial and a simplified silver soldering technique that uses a hand-held butane torch with Argentium solder paste in a syringe. This five-page PDF jewelry tutorial illustrates step-by-step how to bend a length of wire into an oval shape from a precisely cut and marked section of 19-gauge wire. Next, we will apply solder paste to the oval’s joint and securely bond the oval frame with a butane torch against a heat-resistant Solderite board. Once the soldered design is cooled and cleaned, we will twist the oval frame between two Sharpie-pen mandrels to create the Figure Eight frame. Each circle of the Figure Eight is then embellished with complimentary gemstone colors and graduated bead sizes into an overlapping wire-wrapping pattern. Multiple beaded Eights are then connected with a five-ring spiraling Flower formation between each Eight into a bracelet length, and then finished with catch rings and an S-clasp to create this iconic beauty of the Davidchain portfolio.

Please note that this listing is to purchase the digital PDF download only, and no physical supplies are included. This tutorial is a slight derivative from the project within my fifth published book: Silver Soldering Simplified.

My first time buying a tutorial, and using jump rings to make jewelry. Because I'm so new, this took just a minute to make sure I was seeing everything correctly. The photos are very clear, and the use of different colored rings (copper) to show the current step was very helpful. I read it through twice and now am sure I can make this attractive bracelet! Thank you!

Immediate delivery and follow up from the seller. I especially love that the pattern uses different metals to clearly show each step of adding jump rings. Highly recommended!!!

I purchased 3 of this author’s 5 books from Etsy and they are fantastic. Gorgeous high color close up photos of each step and clearly written instructions. I love that the books follow a logical sequence with each piece building on the skills used in the prior piece. I can’t wait to work my way through all 4 books and eventually “graduate” to the 5th book that requires soldering. The seller is responsive and the books shipped quickly and were packaged in thick padded envelopes to prevent damage. The seller offered a small discount after my first purchase which enticed me back to get more of the series. Highly recommended!

Exceptionally well done tutorial. If you want to learn how to do something RIGHT, learn from Scott David Plumlee. I learned how to chainmaille from his first book, and have been addicted ever since. I can't say enough about his clear, concise, teaching skills. His technique is flawless. Learn from the best!
