Pictures of two charm bracelets made with Bass Fishing Snap Swivels. More charms could be added to the bracelets. I have done mine in color waves. Have 3 more to make. The charms are representative of artists from Arttechniques, ChristianPaperArtists, and Altered Art Obsession groups. I used size 10 snap swivels. The sample I saw done on the Carol Duvall show used size 5, but they looked too big to me. I used 6 swivels per bracelet (fits a 7" wrist), and added a clasp. Also added seed beads. On the red one I also used a little larger bead, but this made it a challenge to close the swivel. My already pitiful nails are now cracked down the middle of both thumbs.

Sherre awesome bracelets!! I have been wanting to try those fishing snaps ever since I saw that episode on CD as well...I was going to ask you if they were hard to get open but I see you already answered that by the condition of your nails...do you think you can use needle nose plyers to open them or something like that? I really love that you made the color themed it really adds to the beauty of them, BEAUTIFUL!
