mother's day story lockets™ lanyard

Step 1
Project Note: Use the image as a guide when creating this project, if needed.
 
Cut chain in half and then cut off 4". Discard 4" -- or save for future project. 
Step 2
Determine the top and bottom of the locket, depending on how you want the locket to open. 
Step 3
Open a large jump ring and thread through the loop on both ends of the chain as well as the top of the locket. Make sure the chain is straight all the way around, and close jump ring.

TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring, which can cause distortion.
Step 4
Open a smaller jump ring and thread through the bottom of the locket and the loop on the swivel hook. 
Step 5
Open locket and insert the "blessed" disc and birthstones of children. Insert clear rhinestones for how many years wed.
 
TIP: Customize a locket with discs, birthstones, rhinestones or charms to fit your mom, or the person for whom the gift is intended. 
Step 6
Hang charms from the loop on the swivel hook with jump rings. 
Step 7
Clip work badge (or keys/whatever desired) to the end of the lanyard with the swivel hook.
