This pretty bracelet is full of holiday charm and Victorian elegance. The dark antique brass tones really make the various shades of green pop and the images look bright and vivid in their picture frame bezels.
Instructions

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

  1. Begin this project by taking your Vintaj Relief Block and gently sanding the edges of all your Vintaj square picture frame pendants. Next find your Nunn Designs holiday collage sheet and locate the images shown in the pictures (or choose ones that you like better). Cut out the images to fit into the picture frames. Place some Diamond Glaze on the backside of one of the images and press into place into one of the picture frames. Let dry. Once dry, cover the image in a thin layer of Diamond Glaze. Let Dry. Repeat with all your picture frames and images.
  2. Your chain consists of links which are not soldered together, meaning that you can open them just like jump rings. Count 21 links and then remove these from the main part of the chain by opening up the 22nd link. This is the main part of your bracelet.
  3. Take your green On The Surface card and choose 2 or 3 ribbons that you like on it. Cut a 14" length of each. Put their ends together and tie the ends in a simple overhand knot to the last chain link on your 21 chain link segment from the last step. Weave your ribbons in and out of every other chain link. Tie their ends to the last link on this side of the bracelet. Trim off the excess ribbons on both ends and then place several dabs of GS Hypo over your knots. Let dry.
  4. Your Vintaj clasp comes with two jump rings. One fits inside of an enclosed part of your clasp, if this is not already attached, thread it through the hole and attach it. Before closing this jump ring, attach it to the last link of your chain. Close the jump ring. Attach the other jump ring that comes with the clasp to the last link on the other side of your bracelet. Close this jump ring.
  5. Your bracelet is now ready to decorate! Using jump rings, attach your picture frames to the following chain links: 3, 7, 11, 15, 19.
  6. Take a head pin and place onto it 1 bicone and 1 Czech Glass triangular table cut bead in teal bronze. Create a wrapped wire loop after the last bead. Snip off excess wire with flush cutters. Create a total of 6 of these. Attach the dangles you just made to the following chain links: 2, 5, 9, 13, 17, 20.
  7. Place a jump ring onto each of your star charms and then attach one to each of the end chain links.
