Instructions:


  1. View the Drop Beading Video for a quick how to.
  2. We will first need to construct our charm bracelet, so cut the chain to 6" for a 7 1/2" finished bracelet.
  3. Open an eye pin slipping the loop end of toggle on it and close.
  4. Drop a seed bead, round, seed bead and start a loop adding it to the end of the chain and wrap.
  5. Repeat the above steps for the other end of the bracelet to add the bar.
  6. Lay out your newly made bracelet on your work surface to layout your charm pattern.
  7. I added the first charm to the first link of chain near the loop end of the toggle and then added each additional charm every 5 links and the square flower bead the third link from the charm.
  8. Attach the charms first, using an eye pin and round wrapping a loop.
  9. Then go back and add the square beads dropping a seed bead, square, seed bead on a head pin and wrapping a loop.
  10. I filled in my spaces with a random mix of the acrylic rounds, dropping a seed bead, round, seed bead on the head pins.
  11. For a fuller effect, I added a round/seed bead drop to both sides of my links with the exception of the charmed links!
