Materials Needed:
  • Sculpey III Modeling Compound
  • 7 - 7 mm Jump Rings - Silver - A
  • 7 - E Connectors - Silver - B
  • 2 mm Black Cord
  • Silver Findings Set - C
  • Acrylic Paint & Brushes
  • Varnish
  • Knife
  • Needle
  • Pliers - Needle Nose
  • Charm Patterns - Click Here

Make Charms:

  1. Flatten out a piece of modeling compound to approx. 1/8 inch thickness.
  2. Using the Charm Patterns, cut out all seven shapes with a knife.
  3. Gently smooth and round all rough edges. (Be very gentle to keep the charm at 1/8 inch, and to keep the charm's finished size the same as the pattern guide.)
  4. Using a needle, make a small hole in the top of each charm. (About 1 cm from the edge.)
  5. Bake the charms on a cookie sheet at 275 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Cool.
  6. Paint the charms using desired colors.
  7. Finish the charms with varnish.

Assemble the Bracelet:

  1. Using the pliers, open a jump ring.
  2. Insert the ring through the hole in the charm.
  3. Before closing the ring back up, slip an e connector onto the jump ring.
  4. Now, close the jump ring ends with your pliers.
  5. Repeat steps 1-4 for each of the charms.
  6. Cut a piece of black cord the desired length for your bracelet. (No shorter than 7 inches.)
  7. Slip the charms onto the black cord through the other side of the e connector in the following order: Star, Bread, Fish, Heart, Cross, Stone, Butterfly.
  8. Finish the ends of the bracelet with the silver findings as shown.
  9. Position the end Charms (Star and Butterfly) 1/2 inch from the findings.
  10. Using the pliers, squeeze the e connector loop into the black cord at the 1/2 inch position.
  11. Space out each of the other charms evenly across the black cord. (for a 7 inch cord that is about 3/4 inch space between charms.)
  12. Use the pliers as you did for the Star and Butterfly to set the charms into their positions on the black cord.


Done!
Wear your Bracelet this Easter Season to share the True Meaning and Joy of Easter with anyone you meet.
