First Communion Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

First Communion is an important event in a child's life. Help your little one celebrate with this delicate, beautiful bracelet. Click here for instructions on how to make the matching necklace.

Step one: Attach a sterling silver faith angel charm to a sterling silver open jump ring and set it aside. Cut a length of Soft Flex jewelry wire to approximately eight inches. Using a 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tube, crimp one end of the wire to the bar end of an antique silver pewter small beaded clasp set. For instructions on how to crimp, please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step two: String an antique silver pewter Turkish heishi spacer followed by a 6mm Czech glass rose porphyr, another spacer and a 6mm Czech glass aqua porphyr bead. Repeat this pattern then add an antique silver pewter small butterfly bead. String the Czech glass pattern again starting with rose and finishing after the third rose bead. Follow with a spacer, then the angel charm and another spacer. As an alternate to the angel charm use our Praying Girl Charm (CHARM222). Reverse the pattern as you work toward the other end of the bracelet. In place of the butterfly bead, add an antique rhodium pewter fairy wing bead.

Step three: When you reach the end of the design, crimp the remaining wire to the other end of the clasp. Trim the excess wire.
