B: Four small rondelle beaded-dangle (using small head pin): One 4x6mm rondelle bead

D: Four pearl beaded-dangles (using small head pin): One bead cap and one 10mm pearl bead

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 forming a loop

3.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.

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.

LINK 3: One pearl beaded-dangle (step 1D)

LINK 5: One white jade flower beaded-dangle (step 1A) and one cast metal charm
