Festiva Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

We made this fun cha-cha bracelet for Cinco de Mayo, but you can wear it any day that you feel festive!

Step one: On the 1-inch sterling silver head pins, use the Swarovski crystals, sterling silver Bali beads and the round sterling silver beads to make an assortment of 48 dangles. Finish them with a simple loop. For help making simple loops please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center.

Step two: Use the simple loops to attach the dangles to the loops on the sterling silver beaded bangle bracelet in clusters of three.
