Description

Vintage looking charms with owls, butterflies and flowers make for a perfect charm bracelet. I threw in a few chocolate colored glass pearls to pull out the colors in the charms and add a splash of color and whimsy.

Shanna Steele, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:


  1. Cut your piece of chain so it measures about 7 inches (mine has 31 links).
  2. Find the center link of this 7 inch piece of chain. To do this, you will take a headpin or pair of tweezers and run it through each end of the chain. One link should hang from the center.
  3. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the charm with flowers then attach it to the center link of chain. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring for added security.
  4. On a headpin, pick up a fluted bead cap, a 10mm glass pearl and another fluted bead cap. Make a loop. Count out 2 loops from where you added your first charm. Attach the loop. Wrap the wire and trim the excess.
  5. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the owl charm. Count out 3 links from the drop added in step 4. Attach the jump ring to the that third link. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring for added security.
  6. On a headpin, pick up a fluted bead cap, a 10mm glass pearl and another fluted bead cap. Count out 3 links from the charm added in step 5. Attach the loop to this third link. Wrap the wire and trim the excess.
  7. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the butterfly charm. Count out 2 jump rings from the drop added in step 6. Attach the jump ring to this second link. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring for added securtiy.
  8. On a headpin, pick up a fluted bead cap, a 10mm glass pearl and another fluted bead cap. Make a loop. Count out 2 links from the charm added in step 7. Attach the loop to this second link. Wrap the wire and trim the excess.
  9. Repeat steps 4 through 8 to complete the other half of the bracelet.
  10. Open a jump ring. Attach it to one end of the bracelet. Add half of your toggle clasp. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring for added security.
  11. Repeat step 10 on the other side.
  12. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the charm with flowers. Attach this to the loop on the ring portion of the toggle. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring for added security.
  13. On a headpin, pick up an 8mm glass pearl. Make a loop. Attach it to the loop on the ring portion of the toggle. Wrap the wire and trim the excess.
