Christmas Treasure Charm Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Every one likes a bit of extra sparkle on the holidays. Help your friends and family shine with this Swarovski and sterling silver charm bracelet.

Step one: Cut a piece of round link chain to approximately 6½ inches. Use 0.90 x 4.6mm sterling silver open jump rings to attach the 13mm twist toggle clasp to the chain. Remember when using jump rings, always open in a side-to-side motion, do not pull the ends away from each other as if expanding the circle.

Step two: Find the center of the chain and attach the sterling silver Christmas tree charm using a 0.75 x 5.35mm sterling silver open jump ring.

Step three: Attach the other charms and dangles randomly along the chain. We attached the tall Christmas present and the ornament charm with jump rings, and everything else with wrapped loops. For detailed instructions on how to make a wrapped loop please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Add crystals to the charms as you like. Use the crystals framed in daisy spacers as individual dangles. The joy of charm bracelets is that they are reflections of the wearer's personality. Have fun as you create this Christmas bracelet. Get whimsical; go with your design instincts.
Approximate size: 7 inches
