Monogrammed Jewelry Gift Set

Here's a perfect example of a simple gift you can make very quickly and easily with a JustRite stamper or any monogram stamp set. The bracelet is very simple, you can either buy a premade chain or put together your own if you have basic jewelry making skills. I made the monogram charms from shrink plastic, attached it with some jumprings, and added some matching beads. The stick pin attached to the card is made the same way. You can get the long stick pins from a jewelry supply store like Fire Mountain Gems. What a great way to make a card into a lasting gift that can be worn over an over again! This set would be perfect for a wedding shower gift, wouldn't it?

  1. That is awesome!

    We used to play around with the shrink plastic when I was a kid, but I never thought of using it for crafts or jewelry making... I felt very clever when we made Christmas ornaments! (Oh the things we think are clever when we're 8...)

    These are lovely and understated and elegant. Thanks for sharing the idea -- that would be really cool for wedding invitations, too,...


I appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment!
