Instructions

Note: You can find the Monogram Collection at select JoAnn's stores near you! Bracelet
  1. String a row of 40 beads in your favorite color onto the 22 g. wire. For this bracelet, I used blue tones.
  2. Secure the tail of wire to the latch/hook end of the bracelet with a few wraps.
  3. Slide a bead up next to the bracelet and position it so it sits on top of the bracelet wire. Holding the bead in place, wrap the wire around twice so the bead is locked in place. Continue wrapping beads for the entire length of the bracelet.
  4. Leave a tiny opening on the loop end of the bracelet and slide your monogram pendant, charms and bead dangles into desired order.
  5. Secure the pieces in place by wrapping a long section of wire over the opening.
Necklace
  1. Slide small end of chain through the jump rings / loops on top of metal pendant and blue beads.
Ring
  1. Remove jump ring from pendant.
  2. Place pendant on work surface face down.
  3. Apply a small amount of glue to back of charm, press ring blank into glue and allow to dry.
  4. Once ring is dry, flip it over and glue rhinestone on top of hole in pendant, allow entire project to dry for 24 hours.
Tip: More charms could also be attached in between the wrapped bead section along the bracelet wire.
