Paw Print Charm Bracelet

Step 1

Measure how long you want your bracelet to be and cut 3 lengths of silk ribbon 1cm shorter than the length you need. Your clasp will add some more length to your bracelet.

Step 2

Group one end of all 3 ribbons together and secure them together with one of your gold colour ribbon end clamps. Press this securely using flat nose pliers to make sure it is clamped tightly. Very loosely plait the 3 ribbons together and secure the other end of the ribbon in the same way as before with a ribbon clamp. 

Step 3

Take your laurel chain and trim it to the same length as your cords or keep it the same if it is already correct. Neatly trim off any chain that won't allow you to add a jumpring. You should have small metal loops to thread your small oval jumprings onto.

Step 4

Take some larger round jumprings and your smaller oval jumprings. 
Attach a round ring to each of your ribbon ends. Attach a lobster clasp onto one of these. 
Check your bracelet is long enough to fit around your wrist. If not, attach another jumpring or more to the single ring on one side of your bracelet, to make an extension chain. 

Step 5

Take an oval jumpring and attach this to one end of your laurel chain and the jumpring attached to your ribbon end. 
Repeat this on the other end of your laurel chain to secure it to the other end of the bracelet. 

Step 6

Finally, take one of your charms and a round jumpring. Attatch this to one or two of your ribbons and close the ring securely. Repeat this for your other charms, attaching them onto different ribbons.
