Adding links Italian Charms Bracelet

Italian Photo Charm kits

Once you get the hang of assembling an Italian charm bracelet, the process is quick and simple. When you begin you may want to use a tool to hold the links open while you add a charm. Tools designed specifically for Italian charms are available, but a nail file or another strong and small tool will also work well. Be cautious when using a tool not designed for charms as it may scratch the jewelry.

Begin with either a blank starter bracelet or partially assembled charm bracelet – the steps are the same. The charms link together with a loop on the back of the starter bracelet that hooks to an opening on the charm. In order to add the charm, you will need to expand the links outward and press down with your thumb to keep it in place.

First, hold the bracelet in the palm of your hand leaving your index finger and thumb free. Grasp the opposite end with the other hand and pull to stretch the links. The links will not break! This step will expose the hooks you will use to attach the charms.

Press down firmly with your left hand to hold the links open. For a first time starter bracelet, your starting point will be the last link on the right side. Notice the link opening on the left side of each charm. While holding the link open by pressing with your thumb, slide the charm onto the end from bottom to top.

Removing Links:

To remove the links, hold the bracelet in your left hand. Allow your index finger and thumb to remain free. Grasp the opposite end of the bracelet and pull outward.

Your hands should be horizontal. Notice the loop on the back of each link where you can hook them on or off of each other.

Let me tell you something: When I'm on the golf course and I slip my wedding ring into my golf bag, the Rev. Jacquie Hood Martin is still my wife. When we shoot hoops and I remove my Texas A&M University ring from my right hand, I still love my school. The fact that I can no longer wear my 1987 class ring from Houston's Jack Yates High School doesn't mean I don't cherish the crimson and gold. And I may not be able to fit into the shirt I pledged in, but I will be a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. until the day I die.
I am an unapologetic Christian, but you won't see a cross dangling from my neck or a James Avery charm bracelet on my wrist
