DIY: Adjustable Tassel Charm Bracelet

Summertime calls for jewelry styles that put one at ease. This bracelet design features string-on clasps to keep the design simple and bracelet size adjustable while the snake chain base allows the beads fluid movement during wear.

Stringing the beaded design

Step 1: String your desired design onto the snake chain reserving two of the charms for the finishing tassels. Ideally the design length should equal the exact measurement of one’s wrist. (Example: If your wrist measures 6 inches you should string 6 inches of beads.)

Feeding the clasp through the chains

Step 2: Feed one end of the snake chain into the String-on clasp. Feed the other end of the chain through the opposite side of the clasp. The fit should be snug. It is helpful to slowly rotate the clasp between your fingers while coaxing the second side of the chain through the silicone fitting of the clasp.

Determining tassel length and securing chain ends

Step 3: Before securing the cord end onto the chain determine the desired length of the finale chain tassels. Long tassel tails may get in the way while wearing the bracelet. Always test that the chosen length is long enough to fit the bracelet over one’s hand before cutting excess chain. Use wire cutters to remove any excess length.

Step 4: String a couple of beads onto the chain before positioning one of the cord ends onto the end of the chain. Using chain nose pliers gently squeeze the center section of the crimp so that it secures the chain in place. Repeat on the opposite chain end.

Attaching the finale to the chain tassel

Step 5: Using chain nose pliers, attach the remaining two charms to the loops on the cord ends with jump rings. Make certain the jump rings are completely closed. (I usually use two pairs of chain nose pliers to secure jump rings closed.

For the gold bracelet I used Turquoise Picasso and Canary Picasso Japanese size 6/0 seed beads.

For the silver bracelet I used the following supplies: 3mm silver plated hex cuts, hammered disc charms, Jade Picasso O-beads, and the same gold plate heishe as in the gold bracelet.
