TierraCast charms and Swarovski beads create a merry combination in this charm bracelet. Katie added Swarovski bead dangles of all sizes between each charm to create a Christmas look that will warm your heart and spark your creativity. Our Cotton Candy Bracelet inspired her to create this look. Choose your own charms and beads to make your own version of this look
Create beaded dangles for your bracelet with the following beads. For the bigger dangles, we finished with a wrapped loop, but you could easily finish them with a simple loop, as well.
String a Swarovski 8mm round pearl in Bordeaux onto a 2-inch antique silver-plated 2mm 20 gauge ball end head pin. Finish with a wrapped/simple loop. Repeat five times for a total of six dangles.
String a Swarovski 8mm faceted round in Mocca onto a head pin. Finish with a wrapped/simple loop. Repeat six times for a total of seven dangles.
String a Swarovski 6mm faceted round in Sand Opal onto a head pin and finish with a simple loop. Repeat five times for a total of six dangles.
String a Swarovski 4mm XILION Bicone in Sand Opal onto a head pin and finish with a simple loop. Repeat eight times for a total of nine dangles.
String a Swarovski 4mm round pearl in Bordeaux onto a head pin and finish with a simple loop. Repeat three times for a total of four dangles.
String a Swarovski 10mm round pearl in Bordeaux onto a head pin, followed by a 10mm antique pewter mini hearts bead cap. Finish with a wrapped/simple loop. Repeat two times for a total of three dangles.
Cut a length of 8.5mm antique silver-plated brass textured double cable chain approximately 6 1/2 inches long, or however long desired for your wrist size. Position the chain on a Chain Stä.
Space the charms from the TierraCast antique silver-plated pewter Christmas charm set evenly on the chain, using a 6mm antique silver-plated 18 gauge open jump ring for attaching each. The rocking horse charm will need a larger jump ring to dangle, so we used one of the links from the end of our chain.
Add your Swarovski dangles to the chain using a jump ring for each. We used the three 10mm pearls toward the center of the bracelet. Place the beads in any pattern that is pleasing to you to fill the spaces between the charms.
Attach a 15x8mm antique silver-plated trigger clasp to one end of your bracelet by opening the link at the end of the chain. Close the link once your clasp is in place. Make sure the other end of your bracelet features only one link. You will use this link to attach to your clasp.

the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
