I choose to hang charms with small Swarovski crystals on them to add a touch of color and sparkle.
Bracelets like that are fun to wear when they have dangling sparkly charms on them.
Start by Appling the E6000 glue into the small holes and place the crystals into their place. I choose Rose water opal and light blue crystal colors.
Connect the charms with the 4mm jump rings to the 8mm big jump ring.
Use two plier tools to open and close the jump rings.
