Retired - Halloweentown Bracelet

PROJECT B3003
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This bracelet is full of all your favorite Halloween classics! Show off your spooky spirit by making this charm bracelet incorporating new fun charms by TierraCast.
Instructions
Before beginning, watch the video on How to Make a Simple Wire Loop for Jewelry Making as you will be making a series of simple wire loops for this project.
  1. Measure your wrist before you begin. You'll want your bracelet chain to measure about 1/2 to 1" longer than your wrist measurement. My bracelet chain measures approximately 7 inches.
  2. Use your flush cutters to cut your purple chain to the desired length.
  3. Lay out your chain length and arrange your Halloween charms along the chain where you want them. I spaced mine out at about 2 inches from one another, with one charm at either end of the bracelet, totaling 5 charms across. Since your charm set comes with 8 charms total, you have the option of adding more charms to your bracelet.
  4. Next, open up 5 purple colored aluminum jump rings. Use your jump rings to hang each charm from the chain, closing the jump ring after you attach it. Refer to the photo for placement details.
  5. Use another purple jump ring to attach half of your antiqued silver plated toggle clasp to one end of the chain. Then use another jump ring to attach the other half of the clasp to the other end of the chain.
  6. Now you will begin adding all of your accent beads by creating simple wire loops.
  7. Take your first headpin and slide it through one 6mm green bead, one 6mm black bead and one 6mm orange bead. Then create a simple wire loop with your round nose pliers, cutting off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  8. Repeat this process 7 more times. Set these beaded drops aside.
  9. Next slide a headpin through a black bead, create a simple wire loop. Repeat this whole process 7 more times. Set aside.
  10. Slide a headpin through your black and white bead, create a simple wire loop and repeat the same process 4 more times.
  11. Slide a headpin through your 12mm black acrylic bead, create a simple wire loop and repeat the process 3 more times. You should now have a total of 25 beaded drops to hang off of your charm bracelet. Remember that you can add more beaded drops to your bracelet if you'd like.
  12. Add jump rings to all of your beaded drops but do not close them just yet.
  13. With your bracelet still laying flat, position your beaded drops onto the chain, filling each segment in between the Halloween charms. I placed my beaded drops in no particular order, however I did try to space them out somewhat evenly to show variety.
  14. Once you have your beaded drops where you would like, slide the jump rings onto the chain links and close using your chain nose pliers.
  15. Your bracelet is now ready.
