Perfect for the new mother in your life, this bracelet features a heart-shaped photo frame, which will allow them to show off their beautiful new arrival any time they choose. Pink or blue crystals can be used as well as the appropriate alphabet charms.
Step One: Cut an approximately seven-inch piece of silver-plated medium rollo chain. Attach the sterling silver infinity clasp to one end of the chain using a 4.05mm sterling silver open jump ring. For help with jump rings visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Attach a 5.85mm sterling silver open jump ring to the other end of the chain.
Step Two: Attach the sterling silver heart picture frame to the center of the chain with a 5.85mm jump ring.
Step Three: String the 10mm Swarovski faceted heart pendant in air blue opal on a 5.85mm jump ring. Create a wrapped loop with a 1 1/2-inch eye pin to attach the pendant to the chain approximately four links to the left of the heart frame. For help with wrapped loops visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step Four: String a 6mm Swarovski XILION bicone in light rose on an eye pin. Make a wrapped loop to attach the eye pin to the chain approximately four links to the right of the heart frame. Use 4.05mm jump rings to attach the sterling silver alphabet script charms to the bottom of the eye pin.
Step five: Cut a photo of the newborn to fit the frame and place it inside.
