  • Silver head pins & eye pins

Instructions:

  1. Create several bead charms before assembling your charm bracelet.  To create a bead charm, thread either a head pin or an eye pin with a combination of the round flat disc red beads, 8 mm green and/or 8mm crystal faceted beads.
     
  2. Once the beads are threaded onto the head or eye pin, make a loop using the round nose pliers and trim the excess pin using side cutters.  Create several bead charms.
     
  3. Next, lay your bracelet out before you so that you can design the placement of your Christmas charms and colored bead charms.  At this time, attach a few Christmas charms to the eye pin of a bead charm.
     
  4. Once you are happy with the design placement of your bead charms and Christmas charms, attach the charms to the bracelet chain links using jump rings.  Note:  To open and close a jump ring, hold one half of the jump ring (with the slit at the top) using a pair of chain nose pliers, hold the second half of the jump ring with the round nose pliers  And open the jump ring moving one hand toward you and the opposite hand away from you.  NEVER open a jump ring by pulling it part as this will weaken the support of the jump ring.  To close the jump ring, simply reverse the direction of the one hand towards you and the other hand away from you.

Notes:

  • If you have charms left over, create a pair of Holiday Glitz earrings too!
