Ardennes Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This bracelet design beautifully showcases earth-toned SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystals among an array of dainty silver leaves for a result reminiscent of rich autumn foliage. The complexity of the chain makes this bracelet appear more complicated than it actually is to construct.

Step one:
Attach an antique silver-plated brass simple leaf pinch bail to each hole on a 27mm Swarovski divine rock sew-on in Montana Sapphire. Set aside.

Step two:
Next, construct the dangles. Attach one 0.65 x 4.60mm sterling silver open jump ring each to three 7mm Swarovski briolette pendants in Crystal Copper and four 6mm Swarovski XILION pendants in Crystal Metallic Light Gold 2X. Attach one 0.89 x 9.0mm jump ring to an 18mm Swarovski aquiline pendant in Crystal Red Magma. Set these dangles aside.

Step three:
Attach an antique sterling silver stem, leaves, and flower pinch bail to a 14mm Swarovski cosmic pendant in Crystal Golden Shadow. Link two 0.90 x 4.60mm jump rings together and add them to the bail. Attach an antique silver-plated pewter pinch bail to a 12mm Swarovski XILION mini pear pendant in Peridot, repeat for the second Peridot pendant and connect one jump ring to each. Attach an antique silver-plated brass leafy pinch bail to a 23mm Swarovski wing pendant in Crystal Red Magma and connect two jump rings. Attach a sterling silver decorative leaf bail to a 20mm Swarovski ginko pendant in Crystal Golden Shadow and connect one jump ring. Set these dangles aside.

Step four:
Cut a 3-inch piece of silver-plated leaf chain and use a 0.90 x 4.60mm jump ring to connect the bar-end of a silver-plated pewter star-shaped flower toggle to the end of the chain. Attach the other end of the chain to one of the bails on the divine rock sew-on from step one using a 0.90 x 4.60mm jump ring. Repeat to connect a second piece of chain to the focal and attach the loop-end of the toggle clasp to the fifth link from the end of the chain.

Step five:
Lay the bracelet flat and arrange the dangles, from steps two and three, so they are evenly spaced and positioned how you like. Connect the dangles to the bracelet using their attached jump rings.
