Description

A charming pin, a keepsake for someone special or a talisman in the making. You may add anything you desire: charms that mean something or have a "power" or simply your children's birthstones. I added crimp covers to act as a spacer to divide the charms I included.

Karla Schafer, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:

I used a Rosary Loop in this construction, so please watch the Rosary Loops Video for a "how to". Also the Jump Lock Ring Video for a "how to".

  1. Drop the Swarovski Helix onto a head pin, using the wire looping tool, create a rosary loop attaching it to a loop on the butterfly link.
  2. Decide the order of your charms and add them to the lower pin bar using the Jump Lock Rings. I placed the butterfly link with crystal on first, the faith charm and then the cross.
  3. To act as spacers, add crimp covers between the charms, by opening them a bit wider with two pairs of pliers. Using the pliers to close the crimp cover.
