InspirationFX: Night Before Christmas

Get your creative juices flowing

Night Before Christmas
by: Pam Kearns
This quick bracelet and earring set is so easy to do that you can create them the night before Christmas for a quick gift for someone special, or for just for yourself!

To make Santa Charms: stack from bottom to top a 10mm pearl, a trumpet lily and a 4mm pearl onto a headpin. Finish with a wrapped loop.

Layout the silver charms (gingerbread man, candy cane, snowman, nutcracker and Christmas Tree) along the length a 6" length of chain. Add a Santa Charm between the silver charms.
Attach each charm to the chain with jumprings.
Attach the lobster clasp to one end of the chain with a jumpring
Attach a jumpring to the other end of the chain as the closure ring.

Note: you can lengthen the bracelet by using more chain and adding more charms.

Evenly divide the remaining chain into 2 pieces
Attach a Santa Charm to one end of each chain with a jumpring
Attach the silver wreath the other end of each chain with a jumpring
Open up the loop of each earwire and attach one of the chains off centre so that the charms hang one lower than the other (see photos)

Close the earwire loops.
