1. Measure 2 pieces of chain to fit your wrist. You can either cut the chain or open the links. The average wrist requires a 6?-8? cut.
2. Lay the chain down on your work-space and decide on your charm placement. The example bracelet is about 6.5? long. On one piece of chain, all of the charms are silver and start at 7 links in and continue every 6th link until 5 charms have been added. The second piece of chain holds Antique Brass and Gold charms. The charms start on the 3rd link and continue every 5th link until 6 charms have been added. This spacing allows the charms to alternate in color when the bracelet is assembled.
3. Add your charms one at a time by carefully opening a jump-ring and using it to connect the charm to the chain. Be sure that all of your charms are facing the direction you like.
4. When all of the charms have been added, now it is time to finish the piece. You will connect the two pieces of chain and add the Anna Clasp. From your extra piece of leftover chain, remove two links. Open one link and use it to attach the last two links at each end of the bracelet to each other and to one part of the Anna Clasp.
Now you are finished and have a fun retro tattoo charm bracelet to wear!
