Make your own custom word necklaces with our custom kit.
Choose your wording, acrylic colours and even the colour of the chain and findings. The design will be drawn up for you and cut, all you have to do is assemble.
Our necklaces also make a great gift assembled or un assembled for the crafty person in your life!
The kit includes...
- 2 layers of acrylic in your choice of wording and colours, please refer to colour chart in the images. The charm will measure 7cm at the widest point.
- 50cm chain in your choice of colour or finish.
- 20 jump rings to match your chain colour, these come in 2 sizes so you can make an extender chain if you prefer.
- Lobster clasp in matching colour.
- You can also choose to add pliers to your kit.
Colour selecting & assembly info:
If choosing one of our more translucent colours such as fluorescent, frosted or rainbow iridescent, we reccoment using these only as the back layer, as they are slightly see through and you may see the glue if they are used for the top layer.
Assembly of the layers can be achieved either by using super glue or E-6000. Personally we prefer super glue as it is very fast setting, however you have to use very sparingly as it cannot be cleaned off if it gets on the other pieces of acrylic and cannot be re positioned once the acrylic is laid down.
You may also find the glues can bond better if you lightly sand the back of the lettering, creating a larger surface area to bond to. Please note you cannot sand the back of the mirror acrylics as they have a mirror coating which cannot be damaged.
Opening jump rings can be easily done with pairs of pliers or pliers and fingers, by grasping the jump ring with the split at the top and twisting the ring to open, and then twisting back to close it.
