Inspirational Charm Bracelet

By:

We all need a little reassurance from time to time, so create your own Inspirational Charm Bracelet from Tiffany Windsor for that extra support. DIY jewelry crafts can be a great way to boost your sense of self. Upcycle old charms or create new ones.

Materials:

  • Aleene’s Jewelry & Metal Glue
  • Rubbing alcohol and cotton swab(s)
  • Bracelet chain and jewelry closure (and pliers to attach the closure)
  • Metal charms
  • Toothpick

Instructions:

  1. Lay out all the parts to your bracelet to determine layering and placement. I love to dig into my jewelry stash and combine my vintage pieces with new charms.

  2. To prepare my metal pieces for gluing, I clean them with alcohol and a cotton swab to remove any residue.

  3. The Aleene’s Jewelry & Metal Glue tube has a small applicator tip but I like to puddle some of the glue onto a piece of paper (I use a non-stick paper) and use a toothpick to apply.

  4. Since my bracelet base has an open filigree pattern, I apply the glue to the base rather than the back of the charm to control the placement of glue.

  5. On those hard to hold items such as small rhinestones, just use tweezers to pick up, apply your glue and drop in place.
