You can show off your team spirit with this fantastic jewelry set. TierraCast has come up with a Team Spirit collection of charms that are perfect for a Seattle football fan. We've paired them with Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blends in the perfect colors. If you bleed green and blue, then this set is for you!
Step one: Cut the memory wire large silver bracelet so that it makes approximately five rings. Make a simple loop on one end.
Step two: Open a sterling silver 4.30mm open jump ring and add a charm from the TierraCast large Team Spirit charm assortment. Close the jump ring. For help with opening and closing jump rings, see our Jump Ring Handy Tip Video. Repeat for all of the charms and set aside.
Step three: String the beads from the Go Team 6/0 Seed Bead Blend in a color block pattern, making sure to intersperse the charms as you go. We put a charm on each loop of the bracelet, but on the same side so they would cluster together when worn. Keep stringing beads in a color block pattern and then finish your bracelet with a simple loop.
Step one: Cut one ring plus a quarter of an inch of the memory wire and make a simple loop at the end. Add a blue seed bead, a green seed bead and then a silver seed bead from the Go Team 8/0 Seed Bead Blend. Repeat this pattern three times and then add a blue seed bead and a green seed bead. Add a charm from the TierraCast Team Spirit charm assortment, then a silver, blue and green seed bead pattern. Repeat this pattern once. Add another charm and then. Make a mirror image of the pattern to finish the hoop.
Step two: Finish the end of the wire with a simple loop. Connect the loops with a sterling silver 5.8mm open jump ring. Attach the 12 charm to this jump ring in the center of the hoop using another jump ring.
Step three: Slide two seed beads onto the end of the sterling silver earwire no loop medium blank and make a simple loop at the bottom of the beads. Take a look at this Handy Tip for help with finishing straight earwires. Open the loop to connect the earwire to the jump ring holding the hoop together. Close the loop.
