Charms Bracelet

Charms Bracelet - Easy DIY  www.withablast.net

I made this bracelet for Cheri - hopefully she will leave my very expensive jewelry for me to wear!

I have a lovely gold Charm Bracelet which I have added several charms to over time.  Cheri borrowed it one night ... boo, when I saw it again - 2 charms missing!  She swears high and low that it wasn't her who lost it...

Since she left school, my clothes disappears, my make-up was all over the place {and I mean ALL OVER - even at her friends house}, I do not wear cheap perfume, I would rather go without any - Cheri, again loves using mine and when that's finished, she will kindly invite me to wear hers, ... ugh - I have a slightly different taste in perfume than she does {or whatever her boyfriend buys}.

My make-up was replaced by my very thoughtful son, Dimitri - a whole set in an aluminium case! So, I gave her all my old make-up which, by the way, was already in her room.  The clothes ... that's another story still to be resolved...  I haven't bought perfume for a while, so that's not a problem now.

That brings us to jewelry - today's post ... this was so easy to make {besides the fact that I broke some finger nails, because I do not have the correct tools and therefore uses my nails!}.

This is what I have used:

2 Strings of Chain - measured around my wrist - leaving a small gap to play with.
7 Small rings
1 Clasp
5 Charms

I connected the 2 pieces of Chain by adding a small ring to each side

The Clasp followed - I slipped the Clasp into one of the rings at the end of one side of the chains - this will be used with the ring on the other side of the chain to close the bracelet

After I had done the Clasp, I started to slip a small ring through both the pieces of chain, together with a charm ----- this step I repeated with more or less the same distances in- between and added the other charms.

Finished !  A nice bracelet for a teenager, which is cheap enough not to cry over when she loses it ... and she will ... for the time being, she should leave mine alone {one can only hope}

  9. How funny! I never had the same taste in clothes, perfume or makeup as my teenage daughter did. I never understood why she liked my stuff!! Anyway...this bracelet is adorable and I love every charm on it! You did a great job with it girl!

  18. Oh daughters, (I'm assuming Cheri is your daughter, who else would take such liberties) what are we going to do with them! I think it's our fault as mothers, we are so trendy and well dressed! Really it's a compliment that they want to borrow all our stuff. This seems like a great solution - good luck!
