Slide Bracelets

A slide bracelet is one of the bracelets that you can make with a rhinestone charm. This bracelet is also known as the European charm bracelet. The unit is slender with a rope style. Due to its design, charms and beads can easily slide into it.

To make the unit you should do your research and find the right chain for you. When choosing the chain you should consider the type of clasp. For example, you should choose whether you want a lobster, toggle, or barrel clasp. You should also consider the size and thickness of the chain. If you want to feel free, you should go for the bangle style chain that you can easily slip over the wrist and has an opening where charms can easily slide into.

The right charms to choose are those that have holes in the center. They shouldn’t have external hoops or rings. When making your purchase you should be aware of the hole size and the size of the bracelet. As rule of thumb you should ensure that the two match.

You need to be careful and ensure that you buy the charms that have the letters of your interest. To create a polished look, you should combine large and small charms. Experts recommend that you should go for a unified theme when creating the bracelets. For example, you should go for charms that have the same color.

The best thing with creating slide bracelets is that you don’t need any tools to do it. All you need to do is to unclasp the bracelet and slide the charms. A bracelet with many charms is eye catching; however, if you don’t want it, you should go ahead and select one large, dangling charm that will be the focal point. You should then add other smaller charms around it.

If you are making the unit for someone, you should be certain that he/she likes the colors and design of the bracelet.
