- Remove shanks from buttons with wire cutters or shank removal tool. Hold blades flush with button back and snip. If there are any rough edges left from the shank just sand smooth with emery board or sanding paper. Remove metal prongs from decorative brads with wire cutters or pliers, usually the back prong with snap out with a little tug. If you have to cut the prongs off use your wire cutters and sand any rough edges smooth.
- Consider your placement of embellishments. Use photo as guide or use your own creativity. Look at the spacing between embellishments; you don’t want to run out of room on the bracelet or have embellishments too crowded. Set aside a matching set of embellishments for earrings if you like.
- Adhere embellishments to outside rim of bracelet. If using a liquid glue hold embellishment in place for 30-60 seconds to make sure there is a bond. If using low temp. glue sticks, your bond sets quickly. The reason hot glue gun and glue sticks were not used is because a hot glue bond might not hold up over time if exposed to warm and cold temperatures.
Quick earrings can be made to coordinate with your bracelets. Just remove shank or brad prongs as instructed in Step 1. Bond earring post findings with a jewelry glue. Allow to dry 24 hours before wearing.
