Technique

1. Take six cabochons (3 x picture + 3 x crystal) and six settings. Use your glue to glue the one cabochon to each of the setting.

2. Take sixteen head pins and sixteen 4x6mm rondelles. Place on each head pin one rondelle bead. Create small beaded-dangle by trimming each head pin 1cm from the bead and forming a loop.

3. Take eight head pins, three 8x10mm rondelles & five 10mm round beads and 8 bead caps. Place on each head pin one bead cap & one bead. Create beaded-dangle 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.

FIRST LINK: One black beaded-danglee (step 3) and one small beaded-dangle (step 2).

THIRD LINK: One setting with picture cabochon (step 1) & and one small beaded-dangle.

FIFTH LINK: One opal rondelle beaded-dangle and one small beaded-dangle.

SEVENTH LINK: Same as first link

NINTH LINK: Once setting with crystal cabochon (step 1) & and one small beaded-dangle.

ELEVENTH LINK: One star charm & and one small beaded-dangle

Repeat the above combination two more times to complete the rest of the bracelet. On the last repetition omit the star charm & one small beaded dangle.
