Step by Step
Cut a piece of stretch cord long fit comfortably round your wrist, allowing an extra 10cm or so to allow to tie off at the end.
To make the bracelet charm add a heart crystal onto an eyepin and turn a loop at the top. Also add three black bicones on to head pins and again turn loops at the top. Attach a circular toggle underneath the heart crystal using a jump ring. Cut three lengths of gold chain seven links in length and attach a black bicone to the end of each using jump rings. Finally attach each chain to the toggle, again using a jump ring for each.
Thread the beads onto the stretch cord in the following pattern: round crystal – black pearl – gold scroll bead – black pearl – round crystal – black pearl etc etc - until the bracelet is half the length you need, ending with a scroll bead.
Thread on the charm and continue adding beads in the pattern detailed above, re-starting with a scroll bead so that the charm is between two of the gold beads
Finish threading when the bracelet is the length you require finishing with a gold scroll bead followed by a black pearl so that when the bracelet is finished the pattern described is continuous.
Complete by tying several small knots tightly and trimming off the excess cord.
The earrings are made the same way as the bracelet charm, extending the chain lengths for a longer length. Attach to earwires.
