Decorate with Charms

A friend of mine recently asked me to create a charm bracelet. Something simple, on a bulky linked chain with clear beads and silver heart charms.

Since then I have created a number of pieces. All I have kept plain and simple, not wanting to take away from the outfit that each could be worn with.

They are easy to create as the charm bracelet is pre-made and can be found in most well stocked beading stores and jewellery suppliers. When working with different sized beads it is always wise to try and balance out the sizes, bearing in mind the clasp should sit at the back of the wrist. Heavy items such as charms can help to weigh the chain down across the top of the hand and this helps to ensure the clasp remains to the back of the wrist.
