Give Them Wings Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Perfect for a meaningful Mother's Day gift, this "Give Them Wings" necklace design incorporates personalized tags with an embellished pendant to create a one-of-a-kind look that is as unique as a special mom in your life.

Step one:
Cut the desired image to fit inside a silver-plated pewter designer picture frame. Use Nunn Design adhesive to glue the image into the frame and allow time to dry. Coat the image in Nunn Design sealant. Allow the sealant to dry 20 minutes and apply a second coat. This process will insure that the image remains intact and free of watermarks. Fill the frame with Nunn Design Gel du Soleil and set it beneath a UV lamp to dry for 20 minutes.

Step two:
Stamp the letters of your choosing onto a Nunn Design antique copper-plated pewter small square tag and a Nunn Design antique gold-plated pewter small square tag. For help with metal stamping please visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.

Step three:
Cut a 24-inch piece of each of the following chains: antique copper-plated curb chain, gunmetal-plated cable chain and antique silver-plated 1+1 infinity link chain. Thread a 1.00 x 6.10mm sterling silver open jump ring through all of the ends of the chain to form the necklace.

Step four:
Attach an antique silver-plated pewter 3-Strand multi-strand end piece to the jump ring connecting the chains. Attach the picture frame from step one to the bottom loop on the end piece using a jump ring. Attach the tags from step two to the outside loops on the end piece with jump rings.
Approximate size: 24 inches
