Charm Bracelet Project

This is one of my favorite antique treasures from my personal collection - it's full of Edwardian and Victorian pieces, and I think the memento mori charm may be even older.

  • Victorian penny - 
  • Goldstone heart charm -

My daughter, Phoebe, almost five, really wanted to make her own so I turned her loose on the drawers and let her choose her own charms.

If you have some basic beading equipment, you can make your own!

You need:

  • beading pliers,
  • jump rings (5 or 6mm works great) 
  • A toggle clasp
  • 6-8 inches of larger link chain (or cut an old costume necklace)

Here is Phoebe's finished bracelet - the artist is pleased!
