Monogram Charm Bracelet

This year, I found out a few days before Christmas that my brother-in-law was bringing his girlfriend along to our family celebration. I was excited to meet her, but literally knew nothing about her except that her name is Kelly. What gift do you give someone you don’t know? I raided my jewelry supply stash and came up with a simple but personal charm bracelet that was so easy to make! Since I happen to have lots of metal stamping tools, I added a stamped monogram tag to mine, but if you’re not a stamper, you can easily substitute a store-bought alphabet charm and make this in less than a minute…honestly!

Let’s start with the easy part. This type of bracelet is so popular right now, and it’s so simple to make your own. All you need to do is purchase the expandable bracelet and add whatever charms you like by opening the jump rings, placing them on the bracelet, and closing them back up. {Remember to always twist the rings open and closed rather than pulling them apart.}

To create the monogram charm:
Place your tag blank on a steel stamping block and stamp the letter{s} of your choice. Then, use a texture hammer on the entire tag. Place the tag into a circle on your doming block and tap gently to create the curved shape {if you don’t have one, you can omit this step}. Finally, use a black permanent marker to color in the letter and wipe off the excess with a jewelry polishing cloth. Add a jump ring, and it’s ready to go on your bracelet.

That’s all there is to it! Depending on who you’re making it for, you can add charms for whatever they like, birthstones, favorite colors, and more. What would you put on your bracelet?
