Sugar Bowl Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Sweeten your wrist with this candy-coated bracelet! Following the fun spring fashion trend of playing with candy colors, this design incorporates delicate glass beads that hold an assortment of fruity fun. This piece is perfect to highlight a sunny day wardrobe.

Step one:
Connect three Unicorne Beads red boro glass teardrop drops to a single 1x9mm sterling silver open jump ring. Watch our Handy Tip Video to learn how to open and close a jump ring.

Step two:
Thread one 2 ½ inch sterling silver 22 gauge head pin with one Swarovski 6mm Jonquil faceted round and one Fire Designs hand blown furnace glass bead. Repeat thirty five more times.

Step three:
Cut 6 ½ inches of chain silver-plated round links on round cable chain. Attach five head pins to one side of the chain using a wrapped loop technique, moving towards the center. Then, attach one of the jump rings from Step one to the chain. Repeat this across the entire length of the chain.

Step four:
Attach the loop portion of the sterling silver small circle with curls cut out toggle clasp to one 0.90x7.35mm sterling silver open jump ring, then attach this jump ring to one end of the chain. Repeat for the other end of the chain with the bar portion of the clasp.
