Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut one 12” piece beading wire. String on one crimp bead. Thread end of wire through one closed 5mm round jump ring, then back through crimp bead forming a 1/8” loop and leaving a 1” tail. Secure with crimping pliers.
Step 2:
String on 7” orange beads, covering tail. String second crimp bead. Thread end of wire through a second closed 5mm round jump ring, then back through crimp bead. Adjust beads and wire to take up slack, then use crimping pliers to secure. Thread tail through a section of beads as desired, then trim excess.
Step 3:
Tie one end of silk ribbon through jump ring at one end of beaded strand. Tie an overhand knot and tighten securely, leaving a 1” tail.
Step 4:
Strong one gold barrel bead onto ribbon. Slide bead to knot, then tie another overhand knot about ½” from the first. (Do not tighten too tightly to allow for adjustment after all barrel beads are strung.)
Step 5:
Repeat Step 4 ten times, alternating gold and copper barrel beads, omitting final knot.
Step 6:
Adjust all knots and beads until ribbon strand matches length of beaded strand, tightening knots in ribbon securely. Use final overhand knot to secure ribbon end to jump ring at end of beaded strand. Trim excess ribbon as desired.
Step 7:
Open end link of one piece of chain and attach to round jump ring at one end of bracelet. Close link. Repeat with second piece of chain.
Step 8:
Twist chains and beaded strands together as desired. Trim extra length on chain strands as needed, then repeat Step 7.
Step 9:
Open on oval copper jump ring and attach to Ivy Leaf charm. Close jump ring. Repeat to attach oval gold jump ring to Pumpkin Charm.
Step 10:
Open 8mm round jump ring. String on charms, then attach jump ring at center of bracelet around all strands.
Step 11:
Open one oval copper jump ring and attach to clasp bar. Close jump ring. Open second oval copper jump ring and attach to round jump ring at one end of bracelet. Close jump ring.
Step 12:

    Gorgeous bracelet – perfect for October. Love the charms and the way you used the silk ribbon. Oh – and nice clasp.

    Gorgeous. I have some brass snowmen and wondered if the ink you have for sale would stick to the brass.

    This is a fun bracelet. I definitely want to try this out.
    Nancy, the Vintaj patinas will cover metal—just wash with a degreasing soap like Dawn, rinse well & dry. According to Jess at Vintaj, the patinas can be used on just about any substrate. I’m experimenting on the side bottom (rubber part) of some shoes right now. Not sure how well it will last but I’ll see.
