Step 1. Onto each of 5 Eye Pins, place the following:
1 Gold Plated Round
1 Millefiori Cube
1 Gold Plated Round
Step 2. Using a Side Cutter cut off the excess of each Eye Pin leaving approximately 3/16". For each Eye Pin, using Flat Nose Pliers, bend the 3/16" piece of wire 90°. Using Round Nose Pliers, bend the 3/16" piece of wire from each Eye Pin into a loop and close tightly. Set aside.
Step 3. Glue one Emerald Flat Back Crystal into the appropriate place on each Dragonfly Charm, using Tweezers and Zap-a-Gap. Remember you will only need small dots of Zap-a-Gap to get the Crystals glued on. In addition, you will want to let the glue dry before you move onto the next steps.
Step 4. Twist open a Jump Ring and insert the loop of one end of your Toggle Clasp and the loop from one of the Eye Pins that you have set aside. Twist the Jump Ring closed.
Step 5. Twist open a Jump Ring and insert the loop at the opposite end of the Eye Pin (that you just attached to the Clasp) and a loop from one of the Dragonfly Charms. Twist the Jump Ring closed.
Step 6. Twist open a Jump Ring and insert the loop at the opposite end of the attached Dragonfly Charm and a loop from another one of the Eye Pins. Twist the Jump Ring closed.
Step 7. Repeat Step 5.
Note: While going through these steps, be aware of the way that your Charms are facing. You will want them all to face the same way when the bracelet is finished.
