Summer is here, and with it flowers, butterflies, and frogs. Make this adorable charm bracelet to wear with all your summer sun dresses, or choose your own charms and colors that best suit you.
Do you love this bracelet, but feel like you would enjoy a more challenging design? Then consider creating our On The Bayou Bracelet which offers all the beauty of this bracelet in a ramped-up design.
Step one: Cut a length of 2207 sterling silver cable chain to fit your wrist. In this example we used approximately six and a half inches.
Step two: Attach the clasp to the chain using open oval jump rings. Remember to always open your jump rings side to side not by pulling the ends away from one another.
Step three: Attach your charms and dangles as they look best to you. We put them every three links for a full look. Our designer also alternated colored beads with the pewter charms to give the bracelet extra sparkle. In this example, the charms are attached using oval jump rings. The beads are attached using wrapped loops. For detailed instructions on how to use a wrapped loop, see the Handy Tips section of our Learning Center.
Notes: 1. For a fun, random look, mix the bead caps you choose for the dangles. We even used two different styles on the same bead. 2. For the small bell flowers, start with a head pin, string a 3mm Swarovski faceted bicone (we chose hyacinth), add the small two tone glow bell flower bead, follow with a bead cap and then do a wrapped loop to attach it to the bracelet.
