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..

New-collection-bracelet-4 Pin-it%402x

Start the bracelet by connecting three small jump rings onto the lobster clasp.

New-collection-bracelet-8 Pin-it%402x

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.

New-collection-bracelet-10 Pin-it%402x

Start connecting the bars together with small jump rings.

New-collection-bracelet-12 Pin-it%402x

Keep measuring it around your wrist as you add the bars. Stop adding bars when it wraps all the way around.

New-collection-bracelet-15a Pin-it%402x

Slide on the three small square charms.

New-collection-bracelet-16 Pin-it%402x

Add one large jump ring to the last hole, this will keep the square charms from sliding off the bracelet.

New-collection-bracelet-20 Pin-it%402x

If you would like to add a little more length you can add on the remaining small jump rings.

New-collection-bracelet-21 Pin-it%402x

Perfect for keeping your wrist light as you add the layers on this season.

Sometimes I keep the brass jewelry supplies for future projects, is there something I can store with them to keep them from tarnishing? Thx

I usually get my box already but haven't yet. There doesn't seem to be a tracking code on my account either. Could you send me one?

Hi @sondra - good question! Keep your brass pieces in air tight bags or containers when not in use which will help slow down the oxidation. You can also spray them with a clear acrylic spray or clear sealant (even clear nail polish works). But be careful not to spray a heavy coat or you might have trouble using them in finished designs if you aren't sure yet what they will become. Might be best to wait until you have the finished piece figured out before spraying!

Ok, @tessaranea - sending you an email with the tracking info so we can get to the bottom of it! Not to worry:)
