Boo! Charm Bracelet


About this design:

We have 2 small kids that tend to scare easily, so when it comes to Halloween we have to be a bit more playful these days. Melanie at Earthenwood came through with her Spooky Heads! I just couldn't resist making a silly, jingly charm bracelet.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • length of gunmetal chain to fit around wrist
  • 4" artistic wire
  • clasp
  • 6 Spookiehead charms
  • 6 4mm jump rings
  • 8 firepolished 12mm rounds
  • 6 firepolished 6mm rounds
  • 15 2" headpins in same finish as jump rings

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Since the chain I chose was soldered, I decided to make a link with artistic wire and a 6mm fire polished bead. The swivel clasp is great to use for a charm bracelet so that you can adjust your bracelet without kinking your chain.
Step 2:
To attach the Spookieheads, you need to make sure that your chain isn't kinked and that you are facing them in the same direction. Then use an 18 gauge 4mm jump ring to secure to the chain. To make the fire polished charms, I used a headpin and attached directly to the chain.

    I love these Earthenwood pendants. They are so much classier than the ordinary metal/enamel charms used for Halloween jewelry
