This charm bracelet has a band of color created by two strands of hand-dyed silk in bright blue. The mix of metals is interesting and the repetition of the round shapes is enhanced by pairing smaller charms with round metal rings. This is a great way to use up those charms you love but haven’t found just the right home for! You can lengthen this to anklet-size by adding 1-2” to the chain and ribbon.
1. Line up both pieces of silk. Use your chain nose pliers to attach one fold over ribbon end to the silk. Repeat with other end of the silk strands.
2. With your chain nose pliers, gently open the link at the end of the chain and fit it through the ring on the lobster claw and one of the fold over ends. Close securely. Open one of the square jump rings and attach it to the other end of the chain and remaining fold over end, close securely.
3. Line up the charms in the order you wish to use them. Mix the metals, putting silver with brass or copper with silver until you are pleased with the result. Use the square jump rings to attach the charms to the bracelet chain, going around the two silk strands.
