POW/MIA Cell Phone Charm Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

This cell phone finding can also be used on a zipper pull to remember and honor the POWs and MIAs of the armed services.

Step one: Cut a length of jewelry wire to approximately 7 inches. Attach a sterling silver open jump ring to the top of the POW/MIA charm. Run the wire through the jump ring and fold it in the center. For help with jump rings visit the Handy tip section of the Learning Center.

Step two: String three Toho cube beads on each side of the wire, then run both strands through a Toho triangle seed bead, three cubes and another triangle. Separate the strands and string 3 more cubes on each, run both wires through one triangle bead and a 2x2mm crimp tube and crimp the wires together. For help with crimp tubes, click here. Trim one wire flush to the tube and string the other through a cube bead and another crimp tube. Attach it to the cell phone finding using the crimp tube and trim any excess wire.
