Rivet two flattened Flower Petal Bead Caps to the embossed 29mm Square blank layered over the Etruscan Kaleidoscope decorative pendant to form flowers. Attach jump rings to the upper corners to form a centerpiece for the necklace. Punch or drill additional holes in the embossed Square Tag blanks as shown in the image. For added interest, create decorative rings by stringing circle spacer beads and 4mm jump ring/spacers onto a larger jump ring. Create the necklace by linking a variety of beads, decorative jump rings, embossed Square Tag blanks and jump rings. Attach each side of the necklace to the centerpiece. Attach a clasp at each end of the back of the necklace. If desired, Vintaj Glaze can be used as a sealer for natural metals to prevent oxidation. It is fast-drying, durable and permanent with a satin finish.
