Project Instructions

Step 1 Cut 16 small chain strands in the following lengths: 14 at 3" and two at 9½". Cut one large chain strand measuring 19 links in length.

Step 2 Using a head pin, create a simple loop through each of the following beads (reference Basic Techniques):

A. 13 Crackled Glass Beads = will be called “Glass Charm” throughout the instructions.

B. Four Turquoise Beads = will be called “Turquoise Charm” throughout the instructions.

C. Two Round Coin Beads = will be called “Coin Charm” throughout the instructions.

D. One Silver Wire Bead = will be called “Wire Charm” throughout the instructions.

Step 3 Insert one jump ring through two 3" chain ends; repeat to make seven sets. These will be called “Chain Dangles” throughout the instructions. Leave jump rings open and set aside.

Step 4 Lay large chain on a flat surface. Working from the top part of chain, attach one Glass Charm with one jump ring starting on the fourth link from left end of chain. Repeat on the next 12 links using 12 Glass Charms.

Step 5 Working from the bottom part of chain, attach one Turquoise Charm with a jump ring starting on the fourth link from left end of chain. Connect one Turquoise Charm and one Chain Dangle. Connect the following sequence, each time skipping one link: one Silver Charm and one Chain Dangle, One Turquoise Charm and one Chain Dangle, one Wire Charm and one Chain Dangle, one Turquoise Charm and one Chain Dangle, one Silver Charm and one Chain Dangle, one Turquoise Charm and one Chain Dangle.

Step 6 Take one 9½" small chain and connect left end link of small chain to left end link of large chain using one jump ring. Wrap small chain around large chain toward the right end, then connect right end link of small chain to right end link of large chain with one jump ring.

Step 7 Starting from right end towards the left end, repeat Step 6 using the second 9½" small chain.

Step 8 Connect lobster clasp to one end of bracelet using a jump ring. Connect one larger size jump ring on the opposite end of bracelet.
