Guardian Angel Pin Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Let this angel watch over the little angel in your life with this fun embellishment pin. This pin makes a wonderful gift!
Step one: Cut two inches of sterling silver chain. The chain you use is unimportant, so this is a great way to use up those scraps from other projects. With a sterling silver open jump ring, attach the picture frame pendant to the center link of the chain. String several crystals onto head pins and using a wrapped loop technique, attach them to the bottom links of the chain. If you want them to dangle onto the picture as seen in this example, you will also want to attach a couple to the loop on top of the frame. If you are unfamiliar with how to make a wrapped loop, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step two: Using sterling silver open jump rings, attach the chain to the outside holes on the bottom of the pin.
Step three: With the final jump ring, attach the heart charm to the center hole of the pin and you are done!
