Technique

1. Take 24 small head pins, 24 Lucite flower beads & 24 Imperial rondelle beads. Place on each head pin one rondelle bead and one flower bead. Create beaded dangles by trimming each head pin 1cm from the bead and forming a loop.

TO GIVE CONTRAST PLACE THE BLACK RONDELLE WITH THE RED FLOWERS AND THE RED RONDELLE WITH THE BLACK FLOWER
each head pin one shell bead. Create beaded dangles by trimming each head pin 1cm from the bead and forming a loop.

3. Take 4 head pins with ball, 4 Czech fire-polish beads and 4 bead caps. Place on each head pin one bead cap & one fire-polish bead. Create beaded dangles by trimming each head pin 1cm from the bead and forming 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 twisted ring the other side of the chain.

5. 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 each link.
