Eclectic Bracelet Project

Hi there! I thought I would pass along some instructions for a fun bracelet. I am in love with combining found objects with my Jangles ceramic beads.

Eclectic Bracelet
Supplies Needed:
  1. Make eight charms with headpins and the beads and objects you have for the bracelet.
  2. Cut the beading wire into three equal strands. Crimp the three strands to the loop of the toggle.
  3. Lay out the eight charms evenly spaced on your work table.
  4. Start stringing some of the seed beads on each strand of beading wire.
  5. As your stringing, add the charms to the bead wires so they are spaced evenly along the bracelet. I have 2-3 charms on each strand that way the bead strands hang evenly on your wrist.
  6. Once you have the three strands strung to the correct length for your bracelet, string all three strands though three seed beads.
  7. String one crimp on to all three strands and crimp to the toggle bar.
  8. Trim any excess wire.
