Retired - Tangier Bracelet

PROJECT B676
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
This bracelet sounds as fun as it looks! When you wear this bracelet all the dangles create a musical clinking sound as they brush against each other. The look of this design is exotic, fanciful, and eclectic.
Instructions
You will also need a paint brush for this project.
  1. Please begin this project by watching the video: How to Wrap a Bangle Bracelet in Silk Ribbon. Based upon what you learned in the video, please wrap your Nunn Design bangle bracelet in cerulean blue silk ribbon, adding emerald green vintage lucite rivoli pendants around the bracelet (as seen in the video). When you finish your wrappings, tie a knot and cut off the ribbon leaving 1 inch tails. Use your fingers to fray these tails a bit.
  2. Use your Sizzix Big Kick machine and the India Archway DecoEmboss die to emboss your two Vintaj guitar picks. Use your Vintaj relief block to sand the raised areas exposing the shiny brass below.
  3. Mix equal parts of Vintaj Emerald Patina and Vintaj Glaze to create a wash. Using a paint brush, paint your two guitar picks and your Vintaj 22mm flourish bead cap. Let dry.
  4. Cut your matte gold leaf charm into the following lengths: two 2" sections, one 1.5" length and two .5" sections. Lots of loose little leaves will fall off when you make your cuts, you will use these later.
  5. Open the eye at the base of an eye pin and place onto it your 3 longer lengths of charm chain. Close the eye back up (just like a jump ring). Place onto the eye pin your painted Vintaj bead cap and 1 turquoise round bead. Create a wrapped wire loop after the bead and snip off excess wire with flush cutters.
  6. Open a 10mm jump ring and slip onto it the chain/bead cap tassel you made in the last step. Slip this jump ring around the silk covered bangle (near the knot) and then close the jump ring.
  7. Place onto a head pin 1 turquoise round bead and 1 of the loose leaf charms. Create a simple wire loop after the leaf charm and snip off excess wire with flush cutters. Repeat this step 8 times. On two of your dangles, add a .5" length of leaf charm chain.
  8. Open a 10mm jump ring and place onto it one of your dangles from above. Slip this jump ring around the bracelet and then close. Repeat this step 6 more times, placing these rings with dangles along the circumference of your bracelet.
  9. Open a jump ring and place onto it 1 emerald rivoli pendant. Close this jump ring. Open another jump ring and attach it to the one you just connected the pendant to. Also link this jump ring to your bracelet and then close. Make a second one of these and place on your bracelet.
  10. Open a jump ring and link onto it 1 painted guitar pick and 1 turquoise bead dangle. Link this jump ring onto your bracelet. Repeat this step with another jump ring, guitar pick, and dangle.
  11. Have a wonderful time wearing this fun artsy bracelet!
