Crystal Bliss—Round Robin Charm

March brought me the Crystal Bliss charm bracelet. It has such a delicate chain, I wanted to make sure the charm wasn’t too heavy/chunky. My first attempt was a Byzantine chainmaille weave surrounding a 6mm Czech fire-polished crystal. It was okay, but I thought it was too bulky, hefty for the chain—even at only an inch.

What I chose to do instead was make a layered crystal charm. The lower part of the charm is 6mm green Swarovski crystals and the top layer is 4mm blue Swarovski crystals. It complimented the colors of the charms already on the bracelet.
