Crazy Cat Lady Bracelet Tutorial
Created by: Polly Nobbs-LaRue
Use 2-part epoxy to glue the fireopal or tangerine crystal into the frame setting. Allow to dry.
Lay out charms in the order you want them. The 4 silver cats surrounded by clear crystal and jet hematite crystal charms are my 4 black & white cats, and the copper cat in the middle, surrounded by orange and clear crystal charms, is my favorite fluffy orange & white blind kitty that I sometimes babysit at my mom's house.
Pick out 11 jump rings, all the same size, from the mix. I used approx. 6mm jump rings, but 8mm would have also worked well.
Add all charms using the jump rings. Make sure all the crystals face the same way. For best way to open and close loops, see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF)
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.
