Step 8 (optional): If you have charms that you would like to put on your bracelet: you can use flat nose pliers to open their jump rings and attach them onto the bracelet.

Don’t forget to close the jump rings to secure them onto the bracelet.

Also some charms come with lobster attachments, which means you can just open them and attach them immediately onto your bracelet!

Step 9: Place the jump ring with all the charms in the middle of your ribbon and tie a knot to secure it in place.
