Make a Birthstone Pendant


About this Tip:

Making this elegant birthstone pendant is as easy as 1-2-3!

Components:

The products featured in this tip are listed below.


Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Select the correct color chaton to represent the birthstone of your chosen month. Along with your chaton, gather your adhesive, a toothpick, and a Nunn Design Bezel Tag.
Step 2:
Apply a small amount of adhesive to the bezel. If you place too much in the bezel, the adhesive will overflow.
Step 3:
Insert the chaton, pressing it into place. Wait 5 minutes after handling (or refer to the instructions on your chosen adhesive).

    This is such a great idea to “personalize” for craft fairs. I could make these up ahead of time!!! Yay! So glad I checked this out!

    Great idea.
    I would like to know:
    1. The size of the hole, in mm.
    2. Which bail(s) fit in this hole, do you carry them?
    3. Do they also come in gold tone, or gold plated?
    4. Are there additional tag designs?
    Thanks, yaffa

    @Yaffa B – The hole size on these tags is 3mm. This will allow any of our pinch bails to work with this piece. You could also choose any of the bails that have a loop on the bottom to use with a jump ring. This tag also comes in antique gold or antique copper plating. This is the only design that does not already have the bezel filled. Nunn Design has other options with chatons already placed in the bezel for you:
