Chocolate Cherry Hearts Bracelet
I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day but I’m not a big fan of pink, so instead I chose a vivid combination of red, garnet, and gold for this week’s idea. This sassy five-strand bracelet is comprised of Gold Plated Chain, Cinnamon Red Glass Pearls, Garnet Swarovski Bicones, Pressed Glass Hearts and a few of my favorite charms. Wear this for a V-Day party or make one as a gift for a friend! It measures about 7.25” in length, not including the clasp; lengthen it by adding a few Jump Rings before the clasp.

Step 1. Cut three pieces of Soft Flex, each measuring about 10 inches in length.
Step 2. Onto the first strand, begin with a Crimp, then a Cinnamon Red Pearl and alternate with Garnet Bicones and Pearls until you’ve used all but one Bicone (19) and finish with a Pearl and a Crimp. Set aside.
Step 3. Onto the second strand, string a Crimp and two Gold Rounds, followed by a Ruby Heart. Alternate Hearts (all facing the same direction) and single Gold Rounds until you’ve used 18 Hearts and finish with two Gold Rounds and a Crimp. Set aside.
Step 4. Onto the third strand, repeat Step 3 with 19 Garnet Hearts, instead using 18.
Step 5. Remove the clasps from each of the Steel Bracelets by twisting open the large Jump Rings. Leave both large Jump Rings on one of the Bracelets, but remove both from the other. Clip a Bead Stopper to all three beaded strands on one end, and the Garnet Hearts and Swarovski strands on the other end. Bring the free end of the Ruby Heart strand through the Jump Ring to the left of the Chain and back through the Crimp, crushing the Crimp Bead with Pliers.
Step 6. Free up the Swarovski strand and crimp that to the right of the piece of Chain, then twist open the large Jump Ring and string one end of the other piece of Chain. Crimp on the Garnet Heart strand to the right of this Chain.
Step 7. Repeat this crimping process on the other Jump Ring on the opposite end of the strands, keeping them aligned as you go. Twist open this Jump Ring and slide on the Heart Charm and Heart Key Charm. Twist open a 4mm Jump Ring and attach the toggle part of a Clasp, then twist closed. Twist open another 4mm Jump Ring and attach the Heart Filigree Charm and attach this to the other large Jump Ring on the opposite side, then twist it closed. Enjoy!
