Mother's Pride Bracelet Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Make a thoughtful Mother's Day gift with this fun "Mother's Pride" design. This bracelet showcases a personalized tag that can feature any name or word you choose while brilliant SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystals add eye-catching touches of color.
Step one: Stamp the names of your choosing onto a Nunn Design antique silver-plated pewter medium rectangle tag link. For help with metal stamping please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Use Gem-Tac adhesive to glue a Swarovski SS16 rose flatback in Aquamarine and a Swarovski SS16 rose flatback in Topaz onto the link and allow time to dry.
Step two: Attach one 6mm gunmetal-plated open jump ring to each side of the link. Attach a 3 1/2-inch piece of antique silver plated large circle link chain to each jump ring and also attach a 3 1/2-inch piece of antique silver plated round links on round cable chain to each jump ring. Next, thread a 6mm jump ring through the last links of the left chains on the left side of the link and attach a 9x18mm sterling oval balloon clasp. Thread an 8mm jump ring through the last links of the chains on the right side of the link. Adjust the length to ensure you have the appropriate wrist size.
Step three: Secure one end of a 4-inch piece of ZambaPro™ jewelry wire to the left jump ring on the link using a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube. For help using crimp tubes please refer to the handy tips section of the Learning Center. Thread an alternating pattern of 4mm Swarovski faceted rounds in Aquamarine and 5mm Swarovski XILION bicones in Topaz until the length matches your chains, and secure it to the jump ring at the end of the bracelet with a crimp tube. Attach a second piece of jewelry wire to the right jump ring and repeat.
