Tip: The chain on this project is extra long for adjustablility. Determine desired bracelet size and focus the collection of charms and beads along that length, leaving an inch or two at the end empty as the extender.

Steps

  1. Use head pins and beads to create 12-14 wrapped loop bead dangles, using bead caps, 3mm silver beads and small accent beads as desired.
  2. Open one jump ring and attach one small spindle shell charm at one end of the chain. Close jump ring.
  3. Open one jump ring and attach lobster clasp at other end of chain. Close jump ring.
  4. Stretch chain out on work surface.
  5. Arrange charms and bead dangles along chain as desired.
  6. Use jump rings to attach all dangles and charms.
