Instructions

Note: This bracelet measures around 7.5" - 8" If you have a larger or a smaller wrist then this, you will want to either add or subtract chain links.
  1. On your chain, count 23 links and then on the 24th, open that link the same way you would open a jump ring and remove the rest of the chain.
  2. Please watch the video How to Use Lock-In Jump Rings.
  3. Using what you learned in the video, attach your Tierracast holiday charms via brass lock-in jump rings to the chain lengths at the following intervals: attach onto the 2nd chain link, 6th chain link, 10th chain link, 14th chain link, 18th chain link, and 22nd chain link.
  4. Onto the first chain link and also the last, connect each half of your Tierracast heirloom toggle clasp using a lock-in jump ring to connect each.
  5. Take a 2" brass head pin and place onto it 1 Swarovski Crystal 4mm bicone bead in siam, 1 Czech fire polish 8mm round bead in green turmaline, and another Swarovski Crystal 4mm bicone bead in siam. Create a wrapped wire loop after the last bicone and cut off excess wire with flush cutters. Make a total of 3 of these.
  6. Take a 2" brass head pin and place onto it 1 Swarovski Crystal 4mm bicone bead in siam and 1 Czech fire polish 8mm round bead in green turmaline. Create a wrapped wire loop after the last bead and cut off excess wire with flush cutters. Make a total of 2 of these.
  7. Take a 2" brass head pin and place onto it 1 Swarovski Crystal 4mm bicone bead in siam. Create a simple wire loop right after the bicone. Create a total of 12 of these.
  8. Open a 5mm antique brass jump ring and place onto it 1 of the single bicone dangles from above. Link this to the first chain link of your bracelet. Close the jump ring back up. Repeat this same step attaching it to the last chain link of your bracelet.
  9. Open a 5mm antique brass jump ring and place onto it 1 of the single bicone dangles, 1 of the dangles with 1 bicone and 1 Czech glass bead, and another dangle with the single bicone. Link this to the 4th chain link of your bracelet. Close the jump ring back up. Repeat this same step but attach it to the 20th chain link of your bracelet.
  10. Open a 5mm antique brass jump ring and place onto it 1 of the single bicone dangles, 1 of the dangles with the bicone/Czech glass bead/bicone combo, and another dangle with the single bicone. Link this to the 8th chain link of your bracelet. Repeat this step but attach to the 12th and 16th chain link of your bracelet.
  11. All done! Happy Holidays!
