How to create Gemstone Bag Charms

Learn how to make gemstone bag charms with JewelleryMaker.

Follow these easy to understand instructions from JewelleryMaker to help you create an elegant Gemstone Bag Charm. Ever since the appearance of fuzzy owl keychains on Fendi’s Autumn/Winter runway in 2013, the bag charm trend has no signs of slowing down. This is a great way to make your bag pop and adorn an essence of your personality onto it. Our bag charm has a mix of earthy tones, but why not create your Bag Charm using your favourite colours or birthstones. Post your bag charms online via our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages. We can’t wait to see how you make yours stand out.

Step One

Cut the ball off a headpin and make a wrapped loop securing it to the bottom of the lobster claw clasp.

Step Two

Add on the round silver brushed aluminium bead and make another wrapped loop at the base securing your desired length of chain.

Step Three

Add the Silver brushed aluminium rice bead to a headpin and make a wrapped loop securing it to the end link of the chain.

Step Four

Add your mixed scoop beads in a random order to the chain links between the two silver beads. Add each one to a headpin and secure them as wrapped loops. Attach the larger beads near the top of the chain and graduate down towards the bottom end. It helps to start with one bead per chain link and then fill in any visible gaps.
