A lot of people have started to use charm beads to design their own bracelet. They do this because it allows them to create something that is unique. If you went to a store to buy a bracelet you would be getting one that a lot of other people have already bought. This is not an issue when you design your own.
The first thing that you have to do if you are going to make your own bracelet is to get some charm beads. You can choose pretty much any style that you would like so go ahead and be creative. There are a couple of things to keep in mind however. The first is to make sure that you get beads that have large holes, if you get the ones with small holes you will find that getting them on the wire is a real headache. The other thing is to not get too many charms. A bracelet that is made up of nothing but charms is not going to look very good. Most people will pick a few charms that they like and then fill out the rest of the bracelet with glass beads.
The next thing that you will need for your bracelet is a wire to put the charm beads on. This should be fairly straightforward, you can use any wire that you want. That being said there are a few things to think about when it comes to selecting a wire. The first is that you are going to want to make sure that you choose a wire that is fairly strong, it will be a lot more durable. The other thing that you will need to think about is the material the wire is made out of. Most people will go with a just a metal wire but if you really want to make a high quality bracelet you may want to consider gold or silver.
Before you start to actually assemble your bracelet it is a good idea to take a few minutes to decide on a design. The easiest way to do this is to simply lay out the charm beads so that you can see what they will look like when they have been assembled. This will make it much easier to move the beads around than it would be if they were on the wire. It is a good idea to lay everything out on a towel so that they won’t roll away and get lost.
Once you have decided on a design that you like the only thing left to do is assemble the bracelet. This is pretty easy so you shouldn’t encounter any major problems. Simply cut the wire so that it is about two inches longer than the diameter of your wrist. Then you just put the beads on the wire. There will be one bead that is intended to go on first to anchor the rest of them and another that goes on last to allow the wire to be closed off in a loop. Make sure that you find these two beads and use them in proper spot, they will be pretty easy to identify.
