  1. Charm: Put a coral bead on a headpin and use the simple loop technique to attach it to an eye pin. On the eye pin, string 1 silver, 1 brown and 1 silver. Attach it to another eye pin using the simple loop technique. String 1 coral bead on the eye pin and using the simple loop technique, attach it to a jump ring.

  4. Attach second half of the clasp to the end of the bracelet using a crimp bead. Weave the end of the tiger tail back into the silver bead and cut.


Creating a simple loop using a headpin:

  1. Slide beads onto the headpin in the pattern you desire. Leave a 3/8" portion of the pin uncovered. If necessary, use wire cutters to cut off any excess wire.
  2. Use round-nose pliers to bend the exposed portion of the headpin until it forms a right angle with the rest of the headpin.
  3. Grasp the very end of the headpin with the tip of the round-nose pliers. Roll the headpin towards you to form a round loop.
  4. Use wire cutters to trim the excess wire.
  5. Use the tip of the round-nose pliers to center the loop above the rest of the wire.
  6. To connect the headpin to other materials, gently open and close the loop with the chain-nose pliers.
