Project Instructions

Remove all lids from the tin boxes. Using the long nose hole punch pliers, punch a hole on the top edge of the lid. Repeat for other two lids.

Insert a head pin through the hole. Using the round nose pliers, bend the head pin at a 45° angle. Using the side cutters, trim the head pin to about ¼". Using the round nose pliers, make a simple loop. Repeat for other two lids.

Attach jump rings to all three loops and attach lids to the chain, placing the larger one in the center.

Taking the two type key charms, cut off the pin backs using the heavy duty side cutter pliers. Attach these two charms to the necklace using jump rings.

Cut the loop off the back of the vintage button charm using the heavy duty side cutter pliers. File the sharp edges flush using the square needle file. Glue the charm to the center of the antique silver texture lid using E-6000® glue.

To make the tassel, cut a few pieces of fibers. Gather them together and wrap a head pin around the top to secure. Glue the secured end of fibers into the top of the tassel cap with E-6000® glue.

Punch a hole in the bottom of the large brass lid. Insert a head pin through the hole. Using the round nose pliers, bend the head pin at a 45° angle. Using the side cutters, trim the head pin to about ¼". Using the round nose pliers, make a simple loop. Attach the tassel to this loop.

Attach a spring ring closure to the necklace.
