Description

I wanted to make a holiday bracelet that had a vintage vibe and, I must say, I love this piece! It is very symmetrical in its design, but is so fun!

Shanna Steele, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:


  1. Cut a piece of chain that measures just under 7" in length.
  2. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the Christmas tree charm. Close the jump ring. Add another jump ring.
    TIP: Adding 2 jump rings makes the piece more secure and gives it a more substantial look.
  3. Attach a jump ring to the 2 jump rings just added. Attach it to the center link of chain. Close the jump ring. Add another jump ring.
    TIP: To find the center link of a piece of chain, run a headpin or piece of wire through each end link and hold up the chain so you can see where the center is.
  4. On a headpin, pick up a 6mm Emerald round. Make a loop. Skip the link next to the Christmas tree charm and add it to the next link. Wrap the wire and trim the excess.
  5. On a headpin, pick up a bead cap, 8mm Siam round and another bead cap. Make a loop. Skip the link next to the 6mm Emerald round and attach it to the next link. Wrap the wire and trim the excess.

  15. Repeat steps 4 through 14 to complete the other side of the bracelet.
  16. Open a jump ring. Attach it to one end of the bracelet. Add the bar portion of the toggle. Close the jump ring. Add another jump ring.
