Gather your tools and materials.
This bracelet is built on jump rings and learning to open and close them correctly is key. Never pull the jump rings apart, instead twist them to open and close. Using your chain nose pliers grip one side of the jump ring right by the seam. Using your fingers on the other side twist your fingers south and your pliers north, opening the ring. To close, twist in reverse. Make sure when you close the ring there is not a gap at the seam or your jump rings will pull apart once you connect them..
Start the bracelet by connecting three small jump rings onto the lobster clasp.
Grab a large jump ring and twist it open. Connect it to the three small jump rings and add a bar connector. Close the large jump ring.
Start connecting the bars together with small jump rings.
Keep measuring it around your wrist as you add the bars. Stop adding bars when it wraps all the way around.
Slide on the three small square charms.
Add one large jump ring to the last hole, this will keep the square charms from sliding off the bracelet.
If you would like to add a little more length you can add on the remaining small jump rings.
Perfect for keeping your wrist light as you add the layers on this season.
