I have always found comfort and happiness when I was busy designing and creating. I have many interests and talents and often I am torn when deciding which art medium to work creatively in. Decorative painting is my first love; however, I also enjoy stenciling, jewelry making, sewing, crochet, needlework of all kinds, cooking, card making, faux finishes, decorating and gardening. Working in the craft and hobby industry for many years, I have enjoyed the pleasures of traveling, teaching, and sharing with others basic crafting how-tos! Currently, I am employed as the Marketing Education Director at Plaid. My career journey to this day, is still allowing me the gift of sharing with others the joys of crafting and finding their creative spirits! I hope that our creative paths may cross one day. Until then... happy creating!
It is fun to dress for the seasons and why not include your jewelry accessories too?

Instructions

  1. Determine the length of your bracelet. Note: average bracelets measure 7” in length including the toggle clasp. If the closure is a toggle clasp, reduce the chain by approximately 1 inch. After determining desired length of chain, cut using small flush cutters.
  2. Using chain nose pliers and round nose pliers open and close a gold jump ring.
  3. Attach the half of the toggle clasp to one end of the chain using the open jump ring. Close jump ring and repeat for the other end of the chain and clasp. Check length measurement prior to adding your charms.
  4. Create bead charms using either a head pin or an eye pin. Thread the pin with color coordinating Czech beads, some charms will have one bead, others will have two. Make a loop at the top using the round nose pliers and trim excess pin using small flush cutters.
  5. If the bead charm was made as a connector, add a fall-themed charm to one end using a jump ring.
  6. Lay your chain bracelet out and design the placement of each fall-themed charm as well as the bead charms. You may wish to place the largest charm in the center and work the variety of charms out from the center.
  7. Once you are happy with the placement, begin adding the charms to your chain bracelet using jump rings until all charms have been added.
Tip: Adding a bead connector is fun and will “drop” a charm down from the chain so that it can be highlighted rather than be lost in the mix of charms and beads!
