Instructions
Please watch the video: Quick & Easy Gift Idea - Personalized Holiday Charm Bracelet Using Adjustable Bangle. In this video, you will learn assembly and design tips for personalizing a holiday charm bangle.
  1. Open a 4mm jump ring and attach the dove charm. Close the jump ring. Then open a 5mm jump ring and attach the 4mm jump ring onto the ring in the center of your adjustable bangle. Close the jump ring.
  2. Repeat step one to attach the opalite charm in the same manner.
  3. Next, take one head pin and string on in this order: one 12mm margarita bead, one 10mm margarita bead, and one 8mm margarita bead. Make a wrapped wire loop, wrapping the head pin around the portion of the bangle between the ring with the opalite and dove on it, and one ball end.
  4. String one bicone onto a headpin, and make a wrapped wire loop around the larger open portion of the bangle.
  5. String one Czech fire polish bead onto a headpin, and make a wrapped wire loop around the larger portion of the bangle.
  6. Moving around the bangle, repeat step five to add another Czech fire polish bead.
  7. String one santa bead onto a headpin, and make a wrapped wire loop around the larger portion of the bangle.
  8. Repeat step four to add a bicone.
  9. Repeat step five twice to add two Czech fire polish beads.
  10. Repeat step one to add the gold heart charm to the larger portion of the bangle.
  11. Repeat step five twice to add two Czech fire polish beads.
  12. Repeat step four to add a bicone.
