How Do I Convert A Necklace To A Bracelet?

I have a beautiful charm-type necklace that I would like to also wear as a bracelet. The charms and beads run exactly the length I would want the bracelet to be.

So I need to find a way to connect the two ends where the beading stops and then also find a way to keep the dangling necklace ends pulled out of the way.

Any ideas on what findings I can add to allow me to accomplish this? Thanks! :)

Easy Conversion to a Bracelet
by: beadnbird

I would double the necklace up (to the point where the charms start for the correct bracelet size and attach the clasp to the center point of the bracelet.

Then add a toggle clasp to each end of the bracelet and do it up that way. When you want a necklace just unclasp the middle of the bracelet and wear as a necklace.

I wouldn't remove the toggles as they will make a nice added charm to the necklace if you pick an interesting one.

Wonderful Idea!
