You Will Need
Link the wire circles together using the jump rings and attach the clasp. Lay a piece of wood on the Project Table, and clamp a safety pin to the wood. Use the Dremel 3000 and attach to the end of the Dremel Flexshaft 225 for more precise cutting. Use the cut off wheels 409, multi-chuck 4486 and mandrel 402 to cut the sharp tip off a safety pin.
Engrave a simple pattern onto the washers using the Dremel Engraver with the Diamond Engraving Tip 9929 and hang the washers from the bracelet via copper wire. Thread clear beads onto the safety pins and paper clips. Use a pair of ½ round nosed pliers to bend them into shapes with a loop for hanging.
