Wear your love for the holidays on your sleeve with this festive Christmas Tableau bracelet. Distinctive holiday novelties dangle together in harmony for a jubilant design that is surprisingly simple to create. Make thoughtful, handcrafted gifts for your loved ones this holiday season!
Step one: To create the decorated tag, select and cut out the transfer you wish to apply. We used the word "merry" from the Nunn Design transfer sheet - decorative words. Apply the transfer to a Nunn Design antique silver-plated pewter medium thin rectangle tag. Pat dry and apply a coat of Nunn Design sealant to the transfer. For help applying the transfer, refer to the How to Use Transfer Sheets instructions located in the handy tips section of the learning center. Set aside.
Step two: For the flower dangles we created two large bellflowers and three small bellflowers. Thread one Czech glass 5x4mm light ruby roundelle bead followed by one Czech glass large bellflower white opal bead onto a 24 gauge sterling silver 1.25-inch ball-end head pin and finish with a wrapped loop. Repeat. To assemble a small flower; thread one Czech glass 5x4mm garnet roundelle followed by one Czech glass small bell flower gaspiate/olivine bead and also finish with a wrapped loop. Repeat twice. Set the flowers aside.
Step three: Cut a 080 cable chain to the desired length (our chain is 6.5-inches), and attach a silver-plated pewter leaf toggle clasp using one 6.1mm sterling silver open jump ring at each end. Attach two additional 6.1mm sterling silver open jump rings to the jump ring at the ring-end of the clasp. You will use these extra jump rings to attach the dangles.
Step four: Attach two of the small bellflowers and the decorated tag to one of the extra jump rings. To the second jump ring, attach the remaining dangles: two large bellflowers, one small bellflower and a sterling and resin red wreath 16mm pendant.
