Creative Canines Bracelet Project

Here's a bracelet that would make a perfect gift for the dog lover in your life! Various dog charms line the length of this silver colored charm bracelet.
1) Thread a Bead Cap, a Cane Glass Bead, and another Bead Cap onto a Headpin. With your Chain Nose and Round Nose pliers, make a simple loop with the remaining headpin wire. Repeat this step for the remaining Cane Glass Beads, Bead Caps and Headpins.

2) Open all of the Jump Rings with your Chain Nose and Round Nose Pliers. Use one to attach the Lobster Clasp to one end of the chain. Use the rest of the open Jump Rings to attach the charms to the chain. (You can choose this to be randomly, or in a pattern) Make sure all of the Jump Rings are closed securely after attaching all of them to the bracelet.

3) Open each of the Simple Loops that were created in step #1. Attach each of these to the bracelet (again, this can be following a pattern, or random) Make sure all of the simple loops are shut securely after attaching. Done!
