- ½ inch hole punch, or compass for drawing circles
- Scissors or craft knife
- To begin, you’ll want to select text or paper for your frames. Using the hole punch, punch out the image or text you’d like to use for the round frames. (Alternatively, use a ruler and a drawing compass to create circles slightly larger than ½ inch and use a craft knife or scissors to cut them out.)
- Using Paper Glaze, glue the paper into the bezels and top off to the top of the frame. Using a ruler and craft knife or scissors, cut your text for the rectangle frame. Allow these to dry overnight.
- Next, make 4 wrapped loops using your small clear beads and the copper head pins included in the Darice Findings Caddy.
- Then, make wire beaded “stations” to form your bracelet. (I needed four.) First, cut alength of wire about 5 inches long. Using your round-nose pliers, make a wrapped loop.
- Then thread on your beads in the following order: aurora borealis bead, silver rondelle, aqua rondelle, silver rondelle, aurora borealis bead. Finish off with another wrapped loop. Repeat 3 more times. Now you can assemble your bracelet!
- Attach a wrapped loop component to each side of your bezel using a jump ring. Before closing the ring, thread on one of your small wrapped loop dangles. Then add the subsequent beaded components to each other in the same fashion. Lastly, add your clasp using jump rings, too.
