Easy Charm Bracelet for the holidays

Easy charm bracelet that you can make as a gift or bedazzle it for your own holiday attire.   All you need is a chain that you like with links big enough for fit a lobster clasp in the links.    Here are some sources for the supplies (its also a good way to see what each item is):

Lobster Clasps – These Open and close and you will attach to your chain

Hanging charms – 5-12 charms that you will attached a split ring to.

Chain – This is the base of your bracelet to which you will attach the open part of the lobster clasps.

Split  rings –  These are just like key chain rings only much smaller.   You will want one of these for each charm, and 2 extra potentially for the ends of your chain and I always get 2 more than that to lose in the carpet…

How to:

Now that you have all of your supplies.

Put one charm on each Split ring.

Attach the split ring to the round portion of the lobster clasp.

Attach the open portion of the lobster clasp to a link on the bracelet chain.

(if your bracelet chain is not already equipped with a closure to hold it on your wrist.   You can attach a split ring to one end of the bracelet and then attach that split ring to a lobster clasp. )

The open end of that lobster clasp can then be opened and attached to the other end of the chain when you wear the bracelet.

The great thing about this type of bracelet is that you can switch out the charms as easily as you can undo a clasp.

Give it a try!!

Happy Holidays!!
