Technique

1. Glue the four crystal cabochon and the two music sheet oval cabochons to a matching setting. Allow to dry. Use a jeweller’s glue like E6000 or similar.

2. Take twenty-four head pins, twenty-four daisy spacers, sixteen lucite style daisy beads and eight lucite style flat flower beads. Place on each head pin one daisy spacer and one lucite style flower bead. Create beaded dangles by trimming each head pin 1cm from the bead and forming a loop.

3. Take four head pins, four press glass flower cup beads and four daisy spacers. Place on each head pin one daisy spacer and one glass flower bead. Create beaded dangles by trimming each head pin 1cm from the bead and forming a loop.

4. Take four head pins, four daisy spacers, four bead caps and four 8x10mm crystal rondelle beads. Place on each head pin one daisy spacer, one bead cap and one rondelle bead. Create beaded dangles by trimming each head pin 1cm from the bead and forming a loop.

6.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.

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 items on one jump ring each link.

LINK ONE: One Lucite flat flower beaded-dangle (step 2), two Lucite daisy beaded-dangles (step 2) and one press glass flower cup beaded dangle (step 3)

LINK THREE: One crystal setting (step 1)

LINK SEVEN: Music note charm

LINK NINE: Same as link one

LINK ELEVEN: Same as link three

LINK THIRTEEN: Same as link five

LINK FIFTEEN: One sheet music setting (step 1)

Repeat the above combination from link one to link fifteen to compete the bracelet.
