Technique

1 Create the following beaded-dangles:
A: Sixteen big red beaded-dangles: One bead cap and one 10mm synthetic Howlite red bead
B: Sixteen green crystal beaded-dangle: One 6x8mm fern green crystal rondelle bead
C: Sixteen small crystal beaded-dangle: One 4x6mm crystal rondelle bead
D: Eight crystal beaded-dangle: One 6x8mm crystal ab rondelle bead
E: Eight red crystal beaded-dangle: One 6x8mm red crystal rondelle bead
NOTE: Beaded-dangles are created by threading the bead or sequence of beads on a head pin, then either finishing the head pin with a wrapped loop or a round loop.
2 Each kit contains eighteen Christmas themed charms and three word tag charms. You will only need thirteen Christmas themed charms (so pick your favourites and use the left over for other projects). Take sixteen 6mm jump rings, the three word tag charms and the thirteen Christmas themed charms. Attach one jump ring to each charm
3 Make up the bracelet base by taking one 6mm jump ring and threading the end of the 18cm length of chain and attaching the clasp. Take one new 6mm jump ring and attach the 8mm twisted close ring to the other side of the chain. Now take one more 6mm jump ring and attach the previous twisted ring and one new twisted ring.
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.
