Feel like the Queen of Mardi Gras with this fashionable expandable charm bangle. This look is finished with Swarovski Crystals for a touch of festive sparkle.
Instructions
Feel free to customize the placement of the charms and dangles as your wish. Please see the photo for reference, as a suggestion of placement.
  1. Place an emerald crystal bead onto a head pin. Create a simple wire loop after the bead and cut off excess wire with your cutters. Repeat this step two more times to create a total of 3 emerald dangles.
  2. Place a sunflower crystal bead onto a head pin. Create a simple wire loop after the bead and cut off excess wire with your cutters. Repeat this step two more times to create a total of 3 sunflower dangles.
  3. Place a purple crystal bead onto a head pin. Create a simple wire loop after the bead and cut off excess wire with your cutters. Repeat this step two more times to create a total of 3 purple dangles.
  4. Place a gold bead onto a head pin. Create a simple wire loop after the bead and cut off excess wire with your cutters. Repeat this step three more times to create a total of 4 gold dangles.
  5. Open a jump ring and place it onto the fleur de lis charm. Link this jump ring (with charm) to the bottom bar of the adjustable mid section on your bangle. Close the jump ring.
  6. Open a jump ring and place it onto the crown charm. Link this jump ring (with charm) to the bottom bar of the adjustable mid section on your bangle. Close the jump ring.
  7. Add the rest of the dangles by opening and close their simple loops just like jump rings.
