Fashionista's Dream Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Adorned with pink silk ribbon and dark gunmetal chain, this Fashionista's Dream bracelet is both edgy and feminine. Create this fabulous accessory for Prom or any special night out!

Step one:
Use a 4.05mm jump ring to attach a 15x8mm antique silver-plated trigger clasp to an antique silver-plated pewter 7 to 1 multi-strand end piece. Attach a 2-inch piece of antique silver-plated cable chain to a second end piece. Place the end pieces over a ruler to determine your bracelet length. You will want to measure your desired length from the trigger clasp to one of the middle links on the chain.

Step two:
Cut a piece of gunmetal-plated 1+1 infinity link chain to the appropriate length to fit between the end pieces. Connect it between the middle rings of the end pieces using a 0.65 x 3.30mm sterling silver open jump ring at each end. Cut the same length of silver-plated 3+1 small round and oval link chain and connect it between the third rings on the end pieces using jump rings. With these chains connected, you can check the fit of the bracelet. Adjust if necessary. Use these first two chains to gauge the lengths for the rest of the chains.

Step three:
Make a wrapped loop using 22 gauge half hard sterling silver wire, thread a 6mm white rice freshwater pearl and finish with a wrapped loop. Repeat three times, connecting the pearls as you go to create a chain of four, and finish the last wrapped loop onto a 4-inch piece of silver-plated curb chain. Use a 0.65 x 3.30mm jump ring to attach the free end of the pearl chain to the first ring on the right end piece. Trim the excess chain to the correct length and connect it to left end piece with a jump ring.

Step four:
Cut a piece of light-pink silk ribbon to fit between the end pieces. Attach an 8mm sterling silver u-shape ribbon end to each end of the ribbon. Use Gem-Tac adhesive to glue a 12mm resin maroon dahlia bead onto the center of the ribbon. Space out two Swarovski silver-plated settings in Crystal along the ribbon on either side of the resin bead and sew them onto the ribbon using light-pink thread. Connect the ribbon between the second rings on the end pieces.

Step five:
Cut another piece of 22 gauge silver wire and make a wrapped loop on one end. Thread a 10mm Swarovski baroque pearl in Dark Grey and finish by making a wrapped loop onto a 3-inch piece of silver-plated figaro chain. Attach a 3-inch piece of ZambaPro™ jewelry wire to the first wrapped loop using a crimp tube. Thread the following beads onto the wire: a 4mm Swarovski round pearl in Powder Rose, a 6mm Swarovski pearl, an 8mm Swarovski pearl, a 10mm Swarovski pearl, an 8mm Swarovski pearl, a 6mm Swarovski pearl, a 4mm Swarovski pearl and secure with a crimp tube to the fifth ring on the left end piece. Trim the chain to the correct length and attach it to the right end piece with a 0.65 x 3.30mm jump ring.

Step six:
Attach a 3-inch piece of silver-plated beaded S link chain to the sixth ring on the left end piece. Attach a 2-inch piece of 22 gauge wire to the chain using a wrapped loop. Thread three 6mm white rice freshwater pearls and connect to a 1-inch piece of S link chain with a wrapped loop. Trim the chain to the correct length and attach it to the right end piece.

Step seven:
Attach a 1 1/4-inch piece of antique silver-plated cable chain to the last ring on the right end piece with a 0.75x4.05 open jump ring. Attach the free end of the chain to a sterling silver heart in rectangle link using a 0.75x4.05 open jump ring. Attach a 3 1/2-inch piece of antique silver-plated curb chain to the link with a 0.75x4.05 open jump ring. Trim the chain to the correct length and attach it to the left end piece using a 0.65 x 3.30mm jump ring.

Step eight:
Cut a 5-inch piece of gunmetal-plated twisted curb chain and connect it between the last rings on the end pieces.
