Monogram Pin

About this design:

My Aunt Suzie has always loved her monogram, all swirly and feminine with the two 'S's, so I made her this monogram pin.


Nunn Design antique copper small square 2 bezel pendants antique copper, 1 Nunn Design antique copper medium square bezel link, 2 Nunn Design 16mm glass squares, 1 Nunn Design 24mm glass square, 2 antique copper jump rings, 2 antique copper split rings, 1 clutch-back pin/tack, some Mod Podge, some super glue, 1 sheet of 100 lb. bright white cover stock

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Find letters/pictures/whatever images you want in the bezels, edit them to the exact size of your glass squares, print them on bright white, heavy paper, and cut them out.
Step 2:
Brush a thin layer of Mod Podge over the image and press the glass onto it; press for a minute, then leave for 20 minutes to finish drying.
Step 3:
Use another thin layer of Mod Podge to glue the glass squares into the bezels, let dry for an hour.
Step 4:
Use jump and split rings to join the bezels to each other, then superglue the pin to the back of the top bezel, at its top edge.
