Jewelry artist Susan Tinkler O'Neal of Dallas, Texas, demonstrates how to assemble a prosperity bracelet with three craft coins.

Materials and Tools:

16-gauge copper wire
bent-nose pliers
chain-nose pliers
round-nose pliers
punch
needle file
wire cutters
craft coins
drill
1/16 drill bit
glass beads

Steps:

1. Mark two holes per coin 1/8 inch from the left and right edge on three craft coins. Use a punch to start the holes.

2. Drill holes in the coins using a 1/16 drill bit. Clean the rough edges of the drilled holes with a needle file.

3. Cut a 3-1/2-inch section of copper wire and form a loop at one end using the round-nose pliers. Wrap the wire around twice at the base of the loop. Trim the excess wire next to the loop.

4. Thread a bead onto the wire next to the loop. Form a loop on the other side of the bead with round-nose pliers.

5. Hook the end of the wire through a hole in one of the coins. Wrap the end of the wire around twice next to the bead and trim the excess.

6. Form a loop using a 3-inch length of wire. Slip it into the hole on the opposite side of the coin and wrap the end around the wire twice. Trim the extra wire.

7. Place a bead on the open end of the wire. Slip the wire through a hole in the second coin. Form a loop and wrap it two times close to the bead. Trim the remaining wire.

8. Cut another 3-inch length of wire, slip it through the hole on the opposite side of the second coin and wrap it twice close to the coin. Trim the end.

9. Place a bead on the open end, slip the wire through a hole in the third coin and form a loop, wrapping the wire twice close to the bead. Trim the remaining wire.

10. Cut a 6-inch length of wire, slip it through the hole on the opposite side of the second coin and wrap it twice close to the coin. Trim the end.

11. Add a bead.

12. Create a clasp by folding back the open end of the wire 2 1/2 inches. Place the pliers 3/4 inch from the end of the 2-1/2-inch piece and bend it at a 90-degree angle. Wrap the 3/4-inch piece of wire snugly around the base two times close to the bead.

13. Create a hook by bending the 1-3/4-inch wire with round-nose pliers. Make sure the hook fits into the loop created on the opposite end of the bracelet.
