Jewelry is an essential part of a girl’s wardrobe not only because it completes any look, but it also gives a sense of confidence and beauty to the user.  However, the cost of these stylish pieces can pile up to a very large sum, and it can prove to be a difficult task when trying to find just the right item.  This is especially true for beaded charm bracelets.  With spring and summer just around the corner, this simple accessory is going to be trending yet again; which, frustratingly, means that the prices will be up and the stock will be low.  So why spend time and money on something that may not be exactly what you are in the market for?  This tutorial is a step-by-step explanation on how to make a cute beaded charm bracelet that bears the natural and delicate style of spring and summer (you can use different bead designs or colors for this bracelet, the ones below are just an example).

 

Step 1: Make the main bracelet pattern.

First, slide a filigree flower bead cap, a 10-millimeter yellow jade bead, and then another filigree flower bead cap onto an eye pin, and make a loop at the other side of the eye pin to make a bead link. You will repeat this pattern nine more times in the same way to get the appropriate number of bead links and beads. Next, connect all ten of the bead links together to make the main bracelet pattern (the number of bead links depends on the size of your wrist).  Make sure to add a jump ring to one end of the bracelet and a spring clasp to the other end of the bracelet.

Step 2: Make the pearl bead charms.

To start this step, you are going to slide a 4-millimeter white pearl bead onto a headpin to make a bead charm (make sure you end with twelve white pearl bead charms in total).  After you complete the white pearl bead charms, respectively add three pearl charms to the leftmost and rightmost bead pattern of the bracelet, and successively add three pearl bead charms to the middle bead patterns.

Step 3: Make the jade bead charms and finish the bracelet.

For this final step, make about ten charms with 6-millimeter salmon jade beads, and ten charms with 6-millimeter pale turquoise jade beads.  Following this, you will need to add five charms to an eye pin, then slide a long flower bead cap to cover the jade bead charms (repeat to make two more large charms in the same way).  Finally, attach all three large charms to the main bracelet pattern.

 

There you have it!  You now own an adorable charm bracelet to wear in the coming seasons of natural fashion and delicate accessories.  This easy to make charm bracelet saves you money and ensures that your taste in style is appeased.  You can even switch up the bead type, color scheme, and pattern!  Get as creative as you want, just make sure you still follow the basic steps of the process!
