Designer Tips

  • Using the jump rings, attach an 11mm Princess-cut pendant to the center hole, and a 9mm Princess-cut pendant to each of the outer holes of the Vintaj lotus blossom connector. New to jewelry-making? For most secure way way to open and close jump rings, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
  • Use 2 pair of pliers, so you don't accidentally put pressure on the crystals while closing your jump ring. Bent chain-nose pliers can be helpful, by giving you a different angle (both for viewing, and for holding).
  • Twist open the loop on the bronze Niobium ear wire, add lotus blossom connector, and securely twist ear wire closed.
