Technique

1. Create Amazonite rose beaded-dangles by taking eight head pins with ball, eight 3x4mm rondelles, eight daisy spacers and eight Amazonite rose flower beads. Place one 3x4mm rondelle, one daisy spacer and one Amazonite rose flower bead on each head pin, trim 1cm from the bead and form a loop.

2. Create rhinestone rondelle beaded-dangles by taking four head pins with ball, four bead caps, four 6x8mm rondelles, four rhinestone rondelles and four 3x4mm rondelles. Place one bead cap, one 6x8mm rondelle, one rhinestone rondelle and one 3x4mm rondelle on each head pin, trim 1cm from the bead and form a loop.

3. Create small rondelle beaded-dangles by taking sixteen small head pins and sixteen 4x6mm rondelles. Place a bead on each head pin, trim 1cm from the bead and form a loop.

4.Take one 6mm jump ring and thread the end of the 18cm length of chain and attach the clasp. Take one more 6mm jump ring and attach the 11mm cast metal twisted ring to the other end.

7. 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.
LINK 1: One Amazonite rose beaded-dangles (step 1) & one small rondelle beaded-dangles (step 3)
LINK 3: One rhinestone rondelle beaded-dangle (step 2)

LINK 5: Same as link 1

LINK 7: One cast metal charm & small rondelle beaded-dangles (step 3).
Repeat the sequence from link one to link seven three more times to complete the bracelet.
