Wooden Charm Bracelet

April 18, 2015RaChil Luke

A few weeks ago I got a package from a blogger friend of mine who had just gone through her stash and sent me stuff she wasn’t going to use. It was a very happy day for mail. She’s a big scrap-booker and sent me some stamps, trims and embellishments. One of the goodies I received were these little wood die-cut cameras. Since I’m a photography lover I knew that I wanted to make something to wear to represent!

Step 2: Measure out the length of chain (with the lobster clasp attached) so it equals your measurement from step 1. Snip the chain down and attach your closure piece to the end.

Step 3: Drill a small hole in the corner of each charm you’re going to use.

You may want to play around with the placement/ layout of your charms before deciding which ones to use.

Optional Step: Use wood stain or acrylic paint to color every or every other charm. I decide to alternate because I didn’t want to completely do away with the natural wood grain.

Step 4: Put a jump ring though the hole in the charms and attach them to various links in the bracelet.

I love making bracelets but I always have the most awkward time trying to take pictures of my own wrist.
