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, for inspiration take a look below for jewellery projects and tutorials! 

Charms usually come with a loop or hole, which means they are super easy to incorporate into your designs. Next you need to get a jump ring to hang or connect your charm to another component. 

Attaching a jump ring to your charm is really easy 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!
