A variation on a jewelry kit by TierraCast

Designer Tips

  • Cut a 6-8" length of the red pebble cord, add a small dab of superglue to one of the ends plus drag a small amount of glue around the sides of the end (stay within a 1/8" from the end so no glue shows when you place the cord end on it) and gently press one of the cord ends over the end with glue. Repeat for the other end.
  • Attach two 8mm jump rings to the loops on each cord end and twist each closed (refer to Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF) for twisting jump rings open and shut).
  • Use a 4mm jump ring to connect a toggle clasp to one of the 8mm rings. Repeat for the other side with the other piece of the toggle clasp.
  • Use 4mm jump ring to attach your charm of choice to the 8mm ring attached to the loop end of toggle clasp, twist to close.

  • Add a bead of your choice to a head pin, trim any excess so that you have approx. 1/2" left and make a loop with your round pliers. Use a 4mm jump ring to attach it to the 8mm ring next to the charm. Repeat with another color. New to jewelry-making? See Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF) for step-by-step instructions on making head pin loops.
