Patriotic Charm Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Show your American pride with this three strand patriotic charm bracelet.

Step one: Attach the charms to the three hole spacer bars using sterling silver open jump rings. Attach the larger rings to the bottom loop of the spacer bars, then attach the smaller jump rings to the charms and onto the bigger jump rings to they dangle slightly away from the bracelet.

Step two: Cut three lengths of ZambaPro™ 49 .019 jewelry wire to approximately 11 inches each. Put one end of all three strands into a Bead Stopper to hold them while you work. Space them evenly so the beads have room to move down the strands.

Step three: The pattern for your bracelet is the same for all three strands, the only difference is that you will use sapphire Swarovski faceted rounds on the bottom strand, crystal in the middle and light Siam on the top. The pattern is two 3mm stardust rounds, three 4mm Swarovski faceted rounds and a 4mm bright daisy spacer. Repeat this pattern three times, go through one spacer bar, repeat the pattern four times, add another spacer bar, and then repeat the pattern three more times before adding two more stardust rounds. As you complete each strand, add a Bead Stopper to the other end of the wire to make sure the beads are held in place while you work on the other strands.

Step four: When all three strands are completed, crimp the three strands together on one end using a 1x2mm sterling silver crimp tube. Trim the excess wire from two of the strands. The remaining wire will be used to attach to the toggle clasp. String a 3mm stardust bead followed by a 1x2mm crimp tube and attach it to the loop end of the toggle clasp. Repeat this step on the other side, but attach the wire to a jump ring before attaching it to the bar of the clasp. This will make the clasp easier to close and help the bracelet to lay smoother.
