I let the charms all jumble together to create a focal for this bracelet. The secret to getting them to hang just right? It's all about the jump rings.
A shining representation of dusty desert trails makes this bracelet stand out Sandy brown and gold tones mingle with just a splash of turquoise. Leaf dangles add some life to this eye-catching design. Make one for yourself and become a Trail Blazer in style
Cut a three-inch piece of 22 gauge Yellow Gold Artbeads Designer Wire. Attach a Czech glass turquoise with Picasso leaf bead to one end of the wire by creating a wire wrap. Instead of finishing with a simple loop, slide a fire-polished 3mm bead in opaque gold and smoky topaz luster onto the wire and make a wrapped loop at the top of the bead. Attach a 5mm satin Hamilton gold-plated open jump ring to the loop.
Cut a three-inch piece of Designer Wire and attach a Czech glass opaque teal with Picasso leaf bead to the wire by creating a wire wrap. Finish with a wrapped loop. Add the dangle to a jump ring, followed by a 27mm satin Hamilton gold-plated pewter leaf charm.
Cut a three-inch piece of Designer Wire and attach a Czech glass turquoise with Picasso leaf bead to the wire by creating a wire wrap. Finish with a wrapped loop. Attach a jump ring to the loop. Slide the dangle onto a jump ring. Add a pewter leaf charm to the same jump ring using another jump ring. Add another jump ring to the same jump ring. This empty jump ring will be used to add the dangles to the bracelet later.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately ten inches long. Slide a 14K/20 gold-filled 2x2mm crimp tube onto the end, followed by a jump ring. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube to form a loop around the jump ring and crimp in place.
String 19 opaque gold and smoky topaz luster beads onto the wire, followed by three fire-polished 3mm beads in light turquoise luster. Add your dangles to the wire and then make a mirror image of the beads on the other side of the dangle. Slide on a crimp tube and a jump ring, bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.
Open the jump ring on one end of your bracelet and add the gold-filled 5.9mm spring ring. Close the jump ring.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
