Hi, I’m Brandhyze Stanley with Frugal-nomics, and I’m here at Grey Era Vintage in New York City. And today, I’m going to show you how to make a do-it-yourself charm bracelet. The tools you’ll need are a soldering iron, solder, screwdriver, needle nose plier, file, tinning flux, findings, links, coins, and a clasp. Our first step is to take a finding – make sure that it’s closed. Dip it into the tinning flux, and set that aside. File down the top of your favorite coin – just enough to give it abrasive edge. And, I like to lay these on a flat surface. From there, you will take the soldering iron, and you will touch it to the solder and attach it to the coin. And, you repeat this step for as many coins as you have, or charms that you find appropriate for your length of bracelet. After you have your individual coins already linked together, like so, you’ll take a link - and you can get these in a bag of maybe 10 for two dollars – and you’ll put each one coin on each side, linking them together again to the desired length. From there, you’ll do that with as many coins or charms as you’d like to meet your desired length. You’ll take each coin with the finding attached, and hook up a different link on each one. From there, once you’ve closed all those, you’ll attach the clasp and the chain to the desired length. And, that’s how you get your charm bracelet. Again, I’m Brandhyze Stanley with Frugal-nomics, here at Grey Era Vintage in New York City. Thank you for watching.
