Step 2

Attach lobster clasp and cube drop on either end of bracelet.

Note- If you are using a pre-made charm bracelet, skip this step.

You will use your pliers to open the split jump ring and attach it to one end of the bracelet.    Close the jump ring so the lobster clasp is securely fastened to the chain.    Follow the instructions on how to properly open and close jump rings, here.

Slide a cube crystal bead onto a headpin, and make a wire loop at the top.   Use a closed wire loop to attach the cube crystal bead as a drop to the other end of the bracelet (makes an easy extender chain for adjustable length, with a nice crystal bead drop detail).  If you need help with the looping  technique, click here.

Step 3

Attach Baby Charms

Attach each baby charm, evenly spaced along your bracelet, using your pliers to open the split ring and close it, securely fastening the charm to the link chain.  

TIP - Don't attach a charm too close to the cube bead on the very end, as this last inch or so of chain will function an extender chain so the length of the bracelet will be adjustable.  You don't want the lobster clasp to close right on top of a charm, nor do you want the charm to be dangling below the extender chain.  Use a bead design board, or fit it on your wrist to see what I mean.

Step 4

Attach all remaining beads as "charms"

Slide each remaining pearl and crystal bead onto a headpin and make a loop at the top with your round nose pliers.  Use a bead design board or ruler to evenly space all of your beads and attach them along the length of the bracelet with closed loops.   If you need help with this technique, click here.

That's it, your gorgeous new Mommy Bracelet is ready to wear or give as a gift!  Enjoy!
