Instructions
Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for up-to-date information.
  1. Place a 4mm Austrian crystal crystal bicone bead in chrysolite onto a silver plated 1.5", 22 gauge head pin. Use a pair of wire looping pliers to create a simple loop after the bead, trimming off the excess. Repeat with two more beads in rose, and then with two in sun, to make a total of 5 little beaded drops.
  2. Open up your six silver plated and enameled popsicle charms (2 orange, 2 pink, and 2 lime green) and remove the jump rings that they came with.
  3. Lay a bright silver tone 7.5" charm bracelet out flat on your work surface. Line up your popsicle charms where you want them along the bracelet. See photos for placement details.
  4. Use silver plated 6mm, 19 gauge jump rings to hang your popsicle charms from links along the charm bracelet where you would like them placed.
  5. Use the wire loops you created to hang your crystal drops from the charm bracelet, with one between each two popsicle charms. See photos for placement details.
