Crimson and Gray Bracelet Tutorial

Crimson and Gray Bracelet Tutorial

Created by: The Rings & Things Showroom Team

Designer Tips

  • 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.
