Chintz and Chain Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This tri-metal bracelet was created during a fun-filled Mommy & Me jewelry making day. Because this piece utilizes three different chain types, it will complement all the jewelry already in your collection, and using a transfer-covered link as a focal piece allows you to make a piece truly unique to you.

These transfer sheets were so much fun that we couldn't create just one design. Browse the other fun designs they inspired, including the Urban Poppy bracelet, Sugar and Spice bracelet, Sweet Popsicle necklace, Anemone necklace, Flower Child necklace, Garden in Bloom necklace and Iris necklace.

Step One: Cut a piece of the copper and brick flowers transfer sheet to fit the antique silver-plated pewter medium thin rectangle tag link. Follow the instructions on the package to transfer the image to the link. Cover the link with a thin layer of sealant to keep the image in place. Let dry.

Step Two: Cut a two-inch piece of silver-plated textured oval link chain, gunmetal-plated 1+1 infinity link chain and gold-plated rollo chain. Use a sterling silver open jump ring to attach one end of each of the chains to the sterling silver textured flat round toggle clasp. Attach the other end of the chains to the rectangle link using a jump ring. Repeat this step to complete the other half of the bracelet.
