Connection in Time Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Connection in Time uses a combination of wood and brass components to create a fashionable piece of jewelry. Try creating this stylish Mommy & Me design for yourself, while guiding your child through the steps of creating an equally attractive Happy Thoughts bracelet. This design looks complicated, but it's easy enough to complete in less than 30 minutes.

Step one: In a well ventilated room, begin by assembling the three main accents on this bangle. For the butterfly accent, glue one antique brass butterfly chandelier to one .75-inch cherry wood small tooth swirl gear link. For the bird accent, glue one antique brass soaring bird link to one 1-inch walnut wood small tooth swirl gear link. For the clock accent, glue the following pieces to each other in the order mentioned: one 1-inch walnut wood 6-hole large tooth gear link, one antique vintage brass-plated pewter abstract round link, one .75-inch maple wood clock face donut and one antique brass heart key charm.

Step two: Center and glue the bird accent to the top of the lacquered natural wood plain bangle. To the right of the bird accent, glue the following items side by side: one .5-inch cherry wood small tooth swirl gear link, one clock accent and one antique brass charmed link. To the left of the bird accent, glue one .5-inch walnut wood small tooth swirl gear link, one butterfly accent and one antique brass charmed link.

Step three: Allow the glue to dry thoroughly before wearing.
