How To Create Different Styles For Your DIY European Charm Bracelet

Recently I have been on a buying spree on eBay for charms and beads. I have collected quite a few charms and beads and I am going to share with you how I create different looks in minutes with the use of my beads. It is really fun playing with them. My daughter has her own box full of beads to make friendship bracelets with while I have my own collection of beads and charms to play with too.

My personal favorite are colorful bead and dangling charms. I love bling and dangling charms with a theme. However it is not cheap to have a collection of different charm bracelets with different themes. So I personalize my bracelets using colors and a few basic dangling colorful charms.

I’m going to show you pictures of some of my creations and what are the basic items I used to create them so read on.

Note: Photos Of Different Colored Bracelets Are From My Personal Creations And Taken Using My iPad.

3. Colorful Dangling Charms – You can use other dangle charms in your favorite theme. I am using colorful dangling charms in my creations.

4. Gold Or Silver Beads – You can use gold, silver, metal or grey beads as your basic charm bracelet builder. I am using Tibetan Silver and 925 silver beads. I especially like the Tibetan Silver ones because they are affordable and adds character and depth to my bracelet.

5. One Safety Chain – You will need one safety chain. This item is optional. I used it because I like lots of dangles and hanging stuff on my bracelet.

6. Colorful Crystal Or Glass Beads – This is a must to create the different looks. You can get up to 4 or 6 of each color that you like to build your bracelet.

By Color Or By Theme?

For the purpose of this post, I have created bracelets based on one color themes because they are the easiest to create. However you can do two or three color themes for your bracelets. For example purple and pink, blue and green, yellow and orange. When using dual colors try to put warm colors together with warm ones. Or you can add a dash of black or white to add contrast or go colorful.

Alternatively you can collect themed charms and use those as a base for your bracelet. For example, hair styling theme, animal theme, love theme, mothers theme and a lot more depending on your likes and interests. Collect slowly and be creative and have fun creating your bracelets.
