Step one: Take the antique silver-plated pewter small circle tag and stamp the letters FLY onto the surface If you need help on stamping, please see the metal stamping tip in the Handy Tips section of the learning center.
Step two: Attach a 1.00 x 6.10mm sterling silver open jump ring to one loop on the top of the antique sterling silver 6-ring link and close with chain nose pliers. Repeat for the other loop at the top. Attach a jump ring to the sterling silver bird house charm, sterling/resin 12x16mm flying hummingbird on white background pendant and antique silver-plated pewter small circle tag. For the sterling silver hummingbird charm, link two jump rings together then connect one of them to the hummingbird.
Step three: Attach each charm or pendant's open jump ring to the loops on the bottom of the link, and close with pliers. Unscrew the loop end of the clasp on the leather 16-inch 3mm black necklace.
