The following are materials needed:

  • 22 gauge silver or gold non tarnished wire
  • 10mm diamond shaped paper beads (aubreysbeads.com)
  • tree charm or any kind of charm of choice
  • magnetic clasp

How to:  Double-wire wrapped each paper bead with the 22 gauge silver or gold wire, be sure to connect each bead before wire wrapping the ends.  Wire wrapped the magnectic clasp to each end or use jump ring, although it is more strong if the clasp is wire wrapped.  Connect the tree charm or any charm of your choice to the middle of the bracelet.  Last but not least, be sure to measure the length of the bracelet before attaching the clasp and do not forget to take into consideration that the clasp will add at least 1/4-1/2 of an inch to the length of your bracelet.
