Technique

1. Using the eight 16mm glass cabochons and your Alice in Wonderland collage sheet make up eight altered art glass cabochons following the instructions here. When dry glue to settings

2. Make up the following beaded-dangles:
A Four pearl beaded-dangles: One bead cap and one 10mm pearl bead.
B Six Fire-polish beaded-dangle: One fire-polish beaded dangle
C Two red rose beaded-dangle: One 3x4mm rondelle and one rose

NOTE: Beaded-dangles are created by threading the bead or sequence of beads on a head pin, then trimming the head pin 1cm from the last bead and using your round-nose pliers to form a loop.

3. Take one 6mm jump ring and thread the end of the 18cm length of chain and attach the hook. Take one more 6mm jump ring and attach the 11mm twisted ring the other side of the chain.

4. Attach the charms and beaded-dangles to the bracelet base by using 6mm jump rings in the following order (start on the first link next to the jump ring attaching the clasp and keep adding charms every second link).
Cluster all the items on one jump ring for each link.
