-2 metallic beads
-Jumprings
-Headpins
-Jewelry stringing wire
-crimp beads
-Various beach themed charms and beads _DSC0398First choose the charms you want to use and add jumprings to them. If you use any beads add headpins and jumpring._DSC0399Measure your wrist and add a couple of cm to it. Cut a piece of chain approximately half that size and add the lobster clasp._DSC0400edited
