How can I use your charms to make my own charm bracelet?
There are so many things that you do with our selection of charms, including making your own customised charm bracelets. Just follow our handy hints below for help and advice.
Prepare your chain:
Measure your chain so that it is a little bit bigger than your wrist and cut using wire cutters. This should allow for a clean cut, leaving the remaining chain usable. Then, attach your desired clasp to each end of your project. See here for our range of clasps and findings.
Arrange your charms:
Charm bracelets usually have between 5 and 10 charms on them, and you should do try to balance between larger and smaller chains. You could even choose charms that reflect your personality or to commentate a special event.
Attaching your charm:
Open your jump ring by holding one side with needle nose pliers and then gently opening the other side of the ring with another pair of pliers. Twist the circle gently until the ring has been opened. Then, thread the last link of the chain onto the jump ring, followed by the metal hoop that is attached to the charm. Finishing by gently closing the jump ring, again using your needle nose pliers.
Love your new bracelet:
Once you have repeated the procedure above for each of your charms, you will be left with your own unique creation. Whether it is a gift, or perhaps a treat just for you, everyone will be impressed with your stunning homemade, handcrafted charm bracelet.

How to care for my charm?
You should clean your charms with a soft dry cloth and avoid any contact with harsh chemicals such as chlorine and bleach. We would also like to remind you that charms can pose a choking hazard, and should be kept out of the reach of small children at all times.
