2. Using your side cutter trim the head pin 8mm above the last metal bead (photo 2)

TIP: Keep your head pin off cuts, you will need one to make a jump ring for your necklace. They are handy to keep for future projects to make into more jump rings, or eye pins!

3. Using chain nosed pliers fold over the top section of the head pin (photo 3)

4. Use round nosed pliers to turn a neat loop to finish one crystal charm (photo 4)

5. Repeat these steps until you have 20 crystal bead charms (or however many you would like) (photo 5)

6. Lay out your charm bracelet, remove links if required/necessary. Using chain nosed pliers, open up your jump rings, and use them to attach your charms. The charm bracelet is made up a sequence of one large link, one small link, one large link etc. We chose to position our charms on every other large link (photo 6)

7. Use your chain nosed pliers to open up the loops on your crystal bead charms, we chose to put two crystal bead charm on each large link - in between the link with the charms already on (photo 7) Repeat until you have attached all your crystal bead charms where you would like them!
