Bridal Bouquet Bracelet Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Bridal bouquets are a large part of the ceremony, yet they are gone before the day is done. You can keep a piece of the bouquet with you forever with this bridal bouquet bracelet. Just wrap it around the bouquet, secure with decorative hat pins, and when the ceremony is over, slip it off and onto your wrist for a reminder of the big day! This makes an excellent surprise gift for your bridesmaids as well. Our designer chose peach and erinite colors to complement her bouquet, of course you will use whatever colors best match your flowers.
Step one: Attach a sterling silver oval jump ring to a sterling silver "Crazy 4 You" candy heart charm. Before closing the jump ring, add approximately 9 links (1.5 inches) of drawn cable chain to the ring. Close the jump ring. This chain is to add length to fit around the bouquet. It will create an adjustable length bracelet when you are done.
Step two: On the other end of the chain, attach another oval jump ring and link to a 1-inch eye pin. Slide a 4mm daisy spacer, a 5mm Swarovski peach pearl and another daisy spacer on the eye pin, close with a simple loop. Attach another jump ring and follow with an eye pin with a 6mm cream pearl, jump ring, eye pin with daisy spacers surrounding a 5mm Swarovski erinite bicone, jump ring and finally an eye pin with a 6mm cream pearl. Repeat this pattern one and a half times, ending with the erinite bicone.
Step three: Using an oval jump ring, attach a 10mm round trigger clasp to the end of the bracelet.
Step four: Again, with oval jump rings, attach the sterling silver heart charms starting in the center of your design, to one of the open jump rings. Moving out from the center, skip a space, then attach the other charms on either side.
Step five: On the other open jump rings, you will add head pins with the daisy spacer, peach pearl, spacer pattern or the spacer erinite bicone, spacer pattern. Finish with simple loops.
Step six: To attach the bracelet to the bouquet, simply string it loosely around the arrangement and place decorative hat pins (found at your local fabric or craft store) through the loops of chain and into the bouquet.
