Graduation Set Tutorial
Created by: Polly Nobbs-LaRue
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.
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.

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.
