Style No. 5528 called “Charms” includes instruction sheet, bundles of elastic thread, plastic bracelet, plastic chains, metal chains, metal charm holders, metal charm links, plastic charm links and plastic charms. The kit allows the person to create charm bracelets, necklaces with interchangeable snap-on charms and linking system.

All the sets are specifically designed to craft items such as key chains, necklaces and other articles. The kits allow you to choose in the making of the articles. Detailed instructions are found in each retail box. The instructions show how to make the items in a variety of shapes and sizes. The samples will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the three styles of bead sets will be 9503.70.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other toys, put up in sets or outfits, and parts and accessories thereof. The rate of duty will be free.
