Step one: Stamp the word "happy" onto the Nunn Design antique silver-plated pewter large oval bee tag link using the Metal Complex 3mm lower case 27 pc. Posh alphabet metal stamp set. For help on how to stamp metal, read our Handy Tip in the Learning Center.
Step two: Thread each Swarovski 4mm XILION bicone in Sunflower onto a 1 1/2-inch sterling silver, 24 gauge head pin and finish with a wrapped loop. Attach the Swarovski 14mm rhombus pendant in Jet to a 0.90x5.95mm sterling silver open jump ring with the 4mm wrapped loop embellishments. Learn how to open and close jump rings by watching our Handy Tip video in the Learning Center. Attach the jump ring with the pendant and embellishments to one 6mm sterling spring ring. Connect two Swarovski 3mm bicones to the closed loop on the spring ring using wrapped loops.
Step four: Use two foot-long strands of antique silver-plated 1+1 infinity link chain. Attach each chain end to a 0.90x4.60mm sterling silver open jump ring. Connect one end of each chain to the upper rings of the tag link. Connect the other ends of the chain to each portion of the JBB antique silver-plated brass three flower mini toggle clasp using jump rings.
Step five: Clip the spring ring to the bottom ring on the stamped link. Detach if desired.
