- The bracelet blank comes with 13 disks. You can add or remove the disks with needle nose pliers. You can also use large jump rings to space out the disks.
- Clean disks on bracelet with rubbing alcohol. Dip cotton swab in alcohol and rub across top of disk. A clean surface is a must for bonding embellishments to metal disks.
- Remove button shanks and brad prongs with wire cutters. You can also use a shank removal tool for the buttons with shanks. Do not use for cutting off metal brad prongs, use your wire cutters for metal.
- See photo for placement details.
- Working on a flat surface, decide on your arrangement. Apply a small dot of glue onto a disk. Place embellishment onto glue and gently press down. Allow to dry on flat surface
- Optional: Add a holiday word tag to bracelet next to the clasp with a small jump ring. Make coordinating earrings by removing shanks or metal prongs from embellishment and gluing the embellishment to post earring findings or disk earring wires.
