Easter Parade Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Celebrate Easter with sweet pinks and purples and a dash of bright silver. This charm bracelet sparkles from every angle, and you'll find cute critters dangling alongside Easter eggs and brilliant Swarovski components. Add it to someone's Easter basket or make it as an accessory for yourself!

Step one:
Apply white gilders paste to the surface of the 15x12mm antique silver-plated bunny charm. Learn more about using gilders paste here. You can use a sealer to protect the gilders paste if you wish — the charm may show wear on the raised spots over time, otherwise. Set aside and allow to dry.

Step two:
Create wrapped loops with the 24 gauge sterling silver 1.5-inch ball-end head pins for five of the Swarovski 6mm faceted rounds in Rose Water Opal, three of the Swarovski 6mm faceted rounds in Provence Lavender, five of the Swarovski 6mm faceted rounds in Tanzanite AB and three of the Swarovski 6mm faceted rounds in Light Rose AB. AFind out how to make wrapped loops in our Handy Tip. Set the wrapped loops aside. They will be referred to as the Rose Water Opal dangles, Provence Lavender dangles, Tanzanite AB dangles and Light Rose AB dangles within these instructions.

Step three:
Cut a length of the silver-plated cable chain approximately 7 inches long or 30 links. You can adjust this size to fit your wrist. Attach the silver-plated small lobster clasp to one end using a 925/10 silver-filled 6mm open jump ring, 18 Gauge. For help using jump rings, please see our Handy Tip.

Step four:
Add charms, wrapped loops and dangles to the chain in this pattern:
  • Attach a Rose Water Opal dangle and a Lassero sterling silver tiny flower charm with cut-out center and Light Rose Swarovski crystals to the first link in the chain using two 6mm open jump rings
  • Attach a headpin with a faceted round in Provence Lavender onto the third link of the chain by creating a wrapped loop and then attach the sterling silver Easter egg charm 2 and a Light Rose AB dangle to the chain using 6mm open jump rings
  • Attach a Tanzanite AB dangle, a Rose Water Opal dangle and a Provence Lavender dangle to one 6mm open jump ring and add it to the 5th link in the chain
  • Attach a headpin with a faceted round in Light Rose AB to the 7th link in the chain by creating a wrapped loop and then attach the Lassero sterling silver flower charm with Light Rose Swarovski crystals using a 6mm open jump ring
  • Attach a Lassero flower charm with cut-out center and a Tanzanite AB dangle to the 9th link in the chain using two 6mm open jump rings
  • Attach a headpin with a faceted round in Light Rose AB to the 11th link in the chain by creating a wrapped loop and then attach the JBB antique silver-plated pewter butterfly with spiral wings charm and a Rose Water Opal dangle using two 6mm open jump rings
  • Attach a Tanzanite AB dangle and the Swarovski 19mm silver-plated baguette cross in Light Rose to a 6mm open jump ring and add it to the 13th link in the chain
  • Attach the bunny charm from step one to a 6mm open jump ring. Attach another open jump ring to that one and add a Lassero sterling silver tiny flower charm with Light Rose Swarovski crystals and add this dangle to the 15th link in the chain
  • Attach a Rose Water Opal dangle, a Provence Lavender dangle and a Light Rose AB dangle to one 6mm open jump ring and add it to the 17th link in the chain
  • Attach a head pin with a faceted round in Tanzanite AB to the 19th link in the chain by creating a wrapped loop and then attach a JBB antique silver-plated brass small lollipop fairy house charm using a 6mm open jump ring
  • Attach a head pin with a faceted round in Rose Water Opal to the 21st link in the chain by creating a wrapped loop and then attach a Lassero tiny flower charm and a Tanzanite AB dangle using two 6mm open jump rings
  • Attach a headpin with a faceted round in Light Rose AB to the 23rd link in the chain by creating a wrapped loop and then attach the sterling silver Easter egg charm 1 and a Lassero flower charm with cut-out center to one 6mm open jump ring and add it to the link
  • Add a Rose Water Opal dangle, a Tanzanite AB dangle and a Light Rose AB dangle to a 6mm open jump ring and attach it to the 25th link in the chain
  • Attach a headpin with a faceted round in Provence Lavender to the 27th link in the chain by creating a wrapped loop and then attach the JBB antique silver-plated pewter common wood nymph butterfly charm using a 6mm open jump ring
  • Attach a Lassero tiny flower charm to the 29th link in the chain using a 6mm open jump ring, then add a headpin with a Light Rose AB faceted round by creating a wrapped loop. Finally, attach a Provence Lavender dangle using a 6mm open jump ring


Step five:
Attach a 6mm open jump ring to a 6mm silver-plated closed jump ring and attach these to the end of your bracelet.
