Start by placing glue in the center of the bangle. Next take the entire length of ribbon, ﬁnd the center and place it onto the glue on the bangle and press down until it sticks. Next begin wrapping one end of the ribbon around the bangle until you get halfway.
Once you have wrapped half of the bangle put a dap of glue on the underside of the bangle and then secure the ribbon that you just finished wrapping onto the glue.
Next, grab the other end of ribbon and continue to wrap the other side of the bangle until you meet back on the side that you just finished gluing. Now put another dab of glue and secure that ribbon end right next to the other one.
Now that both of the remaining ends of ribbon are next to each other it’s time to tie them into a knot so they will remain in place.
Next take your charm and jumpring and put them together using your pliers. Then slide the jumpring onto one end of the ribbon and tie the two ends into a bow. Trim the excess off the ends of the ribbon.
Now cut about 34″ of your 28 gauge wire with your wire cutters or scissors. Begin to secure your rhinestone chain by wrapping the wire around the first notch in the chain 3 times and then secure the wire by wrapping around the 3 loops you made a few times.
Continue wrapping around each notch on the chain, make sure to keep the wire taught. When you are finished wrapping the whole circumference of the bracelet secure the end the same way you did the beginning and then cut off the excess wire. All done!
