I’m LOVING these new “Mix and Mingle” jewelry components- and I thought they would be perfect for a “good luck” pendant for a certain young lady graduating from high school and heading off to college. But of course you can customize it with whatever colors are appropos for your situation- like using the school’s colors (or future college colors) or even just stick with the Grad’s birthstones. Really, it’s so flexible, it’s up to you!
- Clover Bead Drop Pendant in Bright Silver
- Mix and Mingle Beads in your choice of colors- I went with green and blue. You’ll only need one package.
- Large jump ring
- Ribbon necklace or Mix and Mingle chain
This is so easy to make, it’s embarrassing! You only have to unscrew the bottom of the pendant and thread the beads on in the order of your choice. I mixed 3 different bead sets, so I got some silver spacers in my pendant, too.
Once you like your stack of beads, screw the top back on your Clover Bead Drop Pendant. Then add a jump ring to the top of the pendant.
Then add it to a chain or ribbon necklace. And the fun part is you can give the graduate extra beads so she can swap out the beads to match outfits, too!
I think whomever receives this will truly feel “lucky!”
