To make the earrings, select 4 largish (approximately 6.5mm or 1/4") jump rings from the assortment. Attach a black jet hematite post findings to a siam (red) link, and attach the siam link to 2016 charm.
Repeat for other earring, but attach a graduation cap charm to the bottom instead.
For the bracelet, select a larger jump ring (8-12mm), and attach it to a 2016 charm. Close it securely. Unhook one end of the bracelet, and slide on a black crystal charm, the 2016 charm, and a siam (red) crystal charm. Close the bracelet hook.

For the necklace, use another large 8-12mm jump ring, attach it to a graduation cap charm, and close it securely. Slide a crystal charm, the graduation cap charm, and a final crystal charm onto the ball chain, then "pop" the clasp closed.
If desired, cut the ball chain shorter with wire cutters.
Note: This project can be done with any graduation year charm. Check our stock for the upcoming graduation year.
