While we created this bracelet during a jewelry party as part of our annual Mommy & Me series, this bracelet is most definitely all grown up. The centerpiece of this design is a captivating element that we created ourselves using transfer sheets, meaning you could create this same design hundreds of times and never come up with exactly the same look.
Step One: Cut a section of the graphic florals transfer sheet to fit the antique silver-plated pewter large circle tag link. Following the instructions on the packaging, transfer the image onto the link. Brush the tag with a thin layer of sealant to keep the image in place. Let dry.
Step Two: Glue a Swarovski SS9 XILION rose flatback in jet into a hole in the antique silver crystal glue-in large leaf toggle clasp set using Gem-Tac adhesive. Repeat three times to fill in each hole in the clasp set. Let dry.
Step Three: Connect the bracelet in this order: bar end of the clasp set, sterling silver open jump ring, 8mm gunmetal-plated open jump ring, silver jump ring, gunmetal jump ring, antique silver-plated pewter abstract framed round link, silver jump ring, gunmetal-plated pewter fancy link, silver jump ring, round tag link, silver jump ring, fancy link, silver jump ring, abstract link, gunmetal jump ring, silver jump ring, gunmetal jump ring, silver jump ring and loop end of the clasp.
