Step 1: Stamp your tags
Using the metal stamp of your choice, stamp your impression on the Antique Gold Plated Pewter Mini Hammered Circle and on the Antique Gold Plated Pewter Horizontal Hammered Rectangle Tag. These tags are cast in lead free pewter and do not require a lot of force to make the impression. Click here for more instruction on stamping these tags.

Step 2: Assemble Bead Dangles
Thread one 4mm faceted bead onto one 24 Gauge Gold Plated Brass 1.5” Head Pin. Using the round nose pliers create a loop approximately 1/4” from the top of the threaded bead. Wrap the excess wire around the pin 3 times and then snip any excess wire. Repeat this process with the other 2 beads and headpins.

Step 3: Assemble ball chain section of bracelet
Take one 6 x 3.5mm Antique Gold Plated Ball Chain Crimp Connectors place it around the last ball of the 2.5mm Gold Plated Ball Chain. Using the round nose pliers gently pinch the crimp connector closed. For additional security you could place a dab of glue in the crimp connector. Repeat on the other end of the 2.5mm Gold Plated Ball Chain. Select two of the 9mm Antique Gold Plated Brass 16 Gauge Textured Open Jump Rings. Open the jump ring using the round nose pliers – attach one jump ring to the crimp connector at the end of the ball chain then repeat for the other end.

Then open the Antique Gold Plated Brass 13 Gauge Large Rope Textured Open Jump Ring using the pliers. Thread the 3 assembled bead dangles from Step 2 onto the Antique Gold Plated Brass 13 Gauge Large Rope Textured Open Jump Ring. Thread the 16 x 13mm Antique Gold Plated Pewter Rustic Heart onto the Antique Gold Plated Brass 13 Gauge Large Rope Textured Open Jump Ring. Close the Large Rope Textured Open Jump Ring.

Step 5: Attach the Antique Gold Plated Pewter Horizontal Hammered Rectangle Tag
Lay the 7-inch Antique Gold Plated Brass Cable Chain Charm Bracelet on your workspace and determine the position of the stamped Antique Gold Plated Pewter Horizontal Hammered Rectangle Tag. Using the round nose pliers open the remaining 2 9mm Antique Gold Plated Brass 16 Gauge Textured Open Jump Rings. Thread the stamped Antique Gold Plated Pewter Horizontal Hammered Rectangle Tag onto the jump rings and onto the links of the 7-inch Antique Gold Plated Brass Cable Chain Charm Bracelet. On one of the 9mm Open Jump Ring also thread the Hammered Heart and Bead Dangle prepared in step 4. Close each 9mm Antique Gold Plated Brass 16 Gauge Textured Open Jump Rings using the round nose pliers.

Attach the other end of the assembled 2.5mm Gold Plated Ball Chain to the ring between the toggle ring and bracelet. Close the jump ring using the pliers. Last but not least, open the 1 remaining 6mm Antique Gold Plated Brass 16 Gauge Textured Open Jump Ring and thread the stamped 12.7 x 12.3mm Antique Gold Plated Pewter Mini Hammered Circle onto the bracelet toggle ring.
