CREATING THE CHRISTMAS JOY BRACELET

1. Using flush cutters, trim the heads off of all headpins. Tip: As an alternative, you can use lengths of 20-gauge wire instead of cutting the head off of the headpins.

2. Using round nose pliers, turn a simple loop on one end of one headpin from Step1. Thread on one Swarovski 8mm erinite rondelle, one Swarovski 18mm crystal red magma rondelle and one 8mm erinite rondelle. Form a simple loop on the end to secure the beads and form an erinite/crystal red magma/erinite bead link.
