PROJECT B689
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
This French-inspired charm bracelet features bright Vintaj Artisan Pewter charms set against black chain and accented with rose gold SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystals. The resulting design is lovely and chic!
Instructions
This finished bracelet measures a little over 7". If you want to make yours longer or shorter, adjust the chain lengths accordingly.
  1. First cut a 20 link long length of black oxidized parallel link curb chain.
  2. Your Czech Glass chain consists of a bunch of simple wire loops connected together. You can open and close these loops just like jump rings. Measure a 12 inch length of Czech Glass chain and separate the simple loops at that point.
  3. Take a jump ring and connect it to the end loop of your 12" piece of Czech Glass chain and the end link on your cut curb chain. Weave the Czech Glass chain down the center of the curb chain, in and out of the links until you get to the last curb chain link. At this point on the Czech Glass chain, separate out the Czech Glass chain links via their simple loops and attach a jump ring to the last Czech glass chain link connected to your bracelet. Now also connect this jump ring to the end curb chain link on this side of the bracelet as well as the round half of your toggle clasp. Close the jump ring. On the other side of your bracelet open and link a jump ring to the previously attached jump ring as well as the toggle bar. Close the jump ring.
  4. Open a jump ring and place onto it 1 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 8mm oval pendant in rose gold. Do not close the jump ring yet, but make another 6 of these little dangles all with open jump rings.
  5. Separate out 6 individual Czech Glass chain links. Onto one end of each chain link place a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 8mm oval pendant in rose gold. Close that link up.
  6. Open and attach a jump ring to all 5 of your Vintaj Pewter pendant charms. Do not close the jump ring.
  7. Time to attach our dangles!
  8. Counting from the side your bracelet with the round portion of your toggle clasp, attach the following: To the jump ring connecting the round part of the clasp attach a rose gold oval with jump ring, to the first curb chain link connect a Czech glass dangle with rose gold oval, to the 3rd curb chain link attach a rose gold oval with jump ring as well as your Eiffel Tower charm, to the 5th curb chain link connect a Czech glass dangle with rose gold oval, to the 7th curb chain link connect your lock charm as well as a rose gold oval with jump ring, to the 9th curb chain link connect a Czech glass dangle with rose gold oval, to the 11th curb chain link connect a rose gold oval with jump ring and your BEBE charm and another rose gold oval with jump ring, to the 13th curb chain link connect a Czech glass dangle with rose gold oval, to the 15th curb chain link attach a rose gold oval with jump ring as well as your fleur de lis charm, to the 17th curb chain link connect a Czech glass dangle with rose gold oval, to the 18th curb chain link connect a rose gold oval with jump ring, to the 19th curb chain link connect the music note charm, and finally to the 20th curb chain link connect your final Czech glass dangle with rose gold oval.
  9. The final accents to this design are the dangles hanging off of the BEBE charm. To make these, take a 2 link segment of Czech glass chain and attach a rose gold oval to one end and connect the other end to the small loop at the base of the BEBE charm. Make a second one of these that is 3 links long and another that is 2 links long. Attach all of them to that small loop on the BEBE charm.
