Using Charms In Your Jewellery Designs

At Kernowcraft, we have a huge range of sterling silver and 14ct gold vermeil charms! They are great to use within jewellery making, with so many possibilities for beautiful designs. Whether you want to use your charms to attach to a bracelet, create a pendant or dangle from earrings - they are so versatile and easy to use and complete a design.

How To Use Charms In Your Jewellery Designs

Firstly, you want to choose the charms you would like to use in your designs.

Charms usually come with a loop or hole, which means they are super easy to incorporate into your designs. You will usually need to get a jump ring to hang or connect your charm to another component such as an earwire or chain.

Attaching a jump ring to your charm is really easy - you need snipe nose pliers to gently twist open the jump ring - but you do need to follow a certain technique so you do not damage the jump ring in the process.

Just remember, you need to twist not pull!
