DIY Valentine’s Day Charm Bracelet

Jan 23, 2014

Bracelet

This bracelet came to mind as I was strolling the aisles of Hob­by Lob­by. I love just roam­ing around look­ing at things and real­ly love it when inspi­ra­tion hits. I’ve cre­at­ed this tuto­r­i­al so you too can cre­ate this super cute charm bracelet to wear for Valen­tine’s Day.

Miniature Ornaments & Bracelet

Supplies Used

To make your bracelet you will need to head to the Valen­tine’s day aisle to get these cute minia­ture cook­ie orna­ments (on sale right now for 30% off) then head to the jew­el­ry aisle to get this chain bracelet, some sil­ver 2″ head pins, sil­ver jump rings to make wire wrapped bead charms and some sil­ver ear­ring hooks.

I already had pink and red rasp­ber­ry beads as well as iri­des­cent (large & medi­um) and pink (small) glass beads to make the triple bead charms. If you don’t have these or sim­i­lar beads grab some of these too as well as some basic wire jew­el­ry tools if you don’t have any.

Adding the hearts

Attach a sil­ver jump ring to 10 of the minia­ture heart orna­ments (4 red, 3 white, 3 pink) and attach each heart charm to the bracelet. I left 2 links between each heart charm.

NOTE: After I got the bracelet com­plet­ed I decid­ed to add some Dia­mond Stick­les to each of the heart designs and cov­er the top icing part of the heart with resin. I high­ly rec­om­mend if you want to do this to do it BEFORE you get the bracelet all togeth­er and do all 12 hearts. 

Adding raspberry beads

Next cre­ate wire wrapped bead charms using 4 red rasp­ber­ry beads and 5 pink rasp­ber­ry beads and attach them to the bracelet alter­nat­ing between col­ors. Click HERE to watch a good video on youtube show­ing you how to wire wrap a bead.

Adding glass beads

Now you are ready to make your next set of triple bead charms. Thread one round clear iri­des­cent bead, one slight­ly small­er iri­des­cent bead and a small pale pink bead onto a 2″ sil­ver pin head and wire wrap the beads to secure them in place. Add a jump ring to the triple bead charm and attach to the bracelet.

NOTE: In the above pho­to you can see the Dia­mond Stick­les and resin coat­ing on the top of the hearts.

Earrings

And since there are 12 minia­ture heart orna­ments in the pack­age and you only use 10 for the bracelet you have 2 left over to make a match­ing set of ear­rings or two charms for a neck­lace. Talk about CUTE!
