The Cousin Tropicali collection is not just for jewelry making! You can use the charms to embellish gift bags, party favors, and so much more!

Another way to incorporate the Tropicali charms into projects other than jewelry making is use them on a card! I tied my beach themed charms together with some twine, punched a hole in my card, and glued the twine to the inside of my card, and then added a dimensional beach themed sticker to finish it off.

The necklace was so simple to make! All I did was open the jump ring at the end of my dangly charm and added it to a necklace base. That's it!

This simple necklace was made adding three accent pieces to a dainty chain with jump rings. The faceted stones create a simple statement.

These earring are the easiest to make! Just grab two earwires and your jewelry pliers. Open the loop at the bottom of the earwire, slide it through the top loop on your earring, and close the loop on your earwire. Repeat this on your other earring. In seconds you have a new pair of earrings!

Create a quick statement ring by cutting the bottom bead off of the drop elements and glue the bead to the top of a ring base. This ring can be worn all season long!
