The Cha-Cha Necklace and Bracelet Instructions is a downloadable PDF. Nothing will be shipped to you. If you want to print out the instructions, you'll need to have a printer. You'll have access to the download after you checkout. You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to open the file. The PDF is two pages long and includes 6 close-up step-by-step photos.
This is not a kit. No materials are included.
This beginner-friendly project teaches you the essential jewelry making skill of opening and closing jump rings. With pliers in each hand you'll learn the proper technique to preserve the round shape of your jump rings and to get a secure closure every time. When wearing the bracelet the teardrop beads make a delightful cha-cha-cha sound. The Cha-Cha is a great way to show off your favorite Unicorne teardrop beads! (Just make sure they're the regular size. The holes in the mini teardrops are too small to fit on the jump rings.)
Cha-Cha is an absolute beginner level project! No previous jewelry making experience is required.
The following supplies and tools are needed to make a Cha-Cha necklace and bracelet set (not included):
- 2 strands of regular size Unicorne teardrop beads
- 200pc 16ga, 5mm TierraCast jump rings
- 2 toggle clasps
- 2 jewelry making pliers (flat-nose, chain-nose, or bent-nose. any combination.)
The "Pattern Only" option is best for independent beaders either working from their own stash or willing/able to search for their own materials because we do not provide vendor recommendations nor color names/numbers. The supply list is on the first page of each project PDF and includes the type/size of each required component as well as the required quantity. The quantity may be listed as a range if the instructions include stringing charts for multiple sizes. If you would prefer to purchase a complete kit that includes both the instructions and all the materials needed to make a project, please reach out. Depending on stock availability we may be able to make you a kit even if that project isn't currently listed as a kit on our website. (There is a "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this page.)
