This cute initial charm makes a great gift for anyone. By adding a jump ring, it can be attached to a chain, ribbon, necklace, key chain, or cell phone charm holder. Or, just string ribbon through it and add it to a scrapbook page or the cover of a book. Here are the supplies that you will need to follow along with for this project:
  • sheet of glass
  • fan
  • safety glass
  • solder
  • liquid flux
  • copper foil tape
  • mini clamps
  • solder iron
  • scrabble tile
  • x-acto knife
  • scissors
  • pliers
  • sanding block
  • diamond glaze
  • bone folder
  • skewer or toothpick
  • walnut ink
  • paint brush
  • cleaning wipes or wash cloth
  • diamond glaze
  • jump ring
It may be difficult to find all of these items in one location, but a good place to start is at Simply Swank (formerly known as Scrapalatte.) I have also found supplies at Home Depot. I bought the Diamond Glaze and walnut ink from a local scrapbook store. If you love the project samples and want one, but don't think you will ever make one, please check out my Etsy shop or visit my custom order page .
