Crimson and Gray Bracelet Tutorial
Created by: The Rings & Things Showroom Team
Stamp the tag with 3mm letter stamps. For longer team names, use a larger tag or smaller set of stamps. See Metal Stamping 101 for detailed stamping instructions. If you're new to stamping, get a few extra tags, as stamping can be unpredictable and there may be mess ups.
Place crystal stones in bezels, and carefully bend prongs down using fingers and/or nylon-jaw pliers.
Add a large round jump ring to the football charm. For best way to open and close jump rings, see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF)
Use 2 small oval jump rings to attach the stamped tag to the football. Oval jump rings can be more secure, because the opening remains at the side of the jump ring.
Use an oval jump ring to attach each crystal charm to the bracelet.
