Learn how to create the Footprints on My Heart Bracelet by Fusion Beads


– [Cody] Hi, today I’m gonna show you how to make the Footprints
on My Heart bracelet. This quick and easy bracelet is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day, so let’s take a look at the products and tools we’ll need to make it. (upbeat music) For this project, I will be using the expandable charm bangle bracelet. I’m gonna be using a 16 millimeter amethyst drop charm by TierraCast, a 15 by 12 millimeter sterling
silver baby footprints charm, and then a 17 by five sterling
silver vertical Mom charm. And then I have five millimeter
20 gauge open jump rings that I’ll use to attach the
charms to my bangle bracelet. As you can see, the drop charms
come in many crystal colors so it’ll be easy for you
to customize your bracelet. For my tools, I will just be
using two chain nose pliers. You can find links to all
these beads and supplies in the description below. So let’s get started. Okay, so to begin I’m gonna go ahead and I’m going to pick up a
five millimeter jump ring. And I’m just gonna go ahead and open it by pulling one side towards
me and one side away from me with my two chain nose pliers. Then I’m going to slide on
my little amethyst charm. And I’m choosing to put my charms in the expandable part
here of the bracelet, but you could also put ’em back here too. However you would like
to do your bracelet. So just go ahead and
attack it to the bracelet and then gently close your jump ring. Got the first charm on there. Now I’m gonna go ahead and
I’m gonna add the Mom charm. And as you can see, the
sterling silver charm, it already has a little
jump ring on there. But I wanna use the five
millimeter, the smaller jump rings, to have a nice, uniform
size on everything, so I’m just gonna go ahead
and remove this jump ring. And then I’m going to attach a five millimeter jump ring to it, and then I’m going to attach
it to the bangle bracelet. And then the same thing with
the footprint charm here. I’m just gonna go ahead
and remove the jump ring that’s already on there. Set that aside. And I’m going to use my
five millimeter jump ring to attach it to the bangle. Just make sure your
feet are facing forward when you put it on there. Your Mom’s not so bad ’cause it says the same
thing on both sides, but your footprint’s
only on one side there. Oh. Attach it to the bangle. Can’t really see that there (laughs) with the guide in the way. And then close it. And now you have this really cute, quick and easy Mother’s Day design that you can customize for
any birthstone color you like or add charms that would fit your Mom. You can find all the products and tools for this inspiration
