Fat Tuesday Bracelet Tutorial
Created by: Tiffany White
- Assemble all glass and brass beads on head pins. Secure with wrapped loops.
- Use either round glass beads or Swarovski crystal beads.
- Attach all charms to round brass jump rings.
- Attach charms and bead dangles to bracelet one at a time using oval jump rings.
- Place two brass dangles on an oval jump ring.
- On the next jump ring place one of each color glass dangles.
- On the next link, place one brass dangle and one fleur-de-lis charm.
- Repeat pattern until complete.
- Finish with toggle clasp.
- For coordinating earrings, see "Mardi Gras" Earrings. There is no coordinating necklace, since your neck will already be adorned with Mardi Gras beads!
