DIRECTIONS:

For Square Frame Necklace:
1.
Choose a hometown or favorite vacation spot map. The city name on the map should be no larger than the size of the frame, so scanning the image into a computer and resize it may be required.
2. Lay the map on the cutting mat. Open the metal frame, and separate the glass pieces on the inside of the frame. Make sure the work surface is clean, and touch the glass as little as possible to keep it clean. Lay the glass over the part of the map that will be in the pendant.
3. Use the cutting knife to trim the map to the shape of the glass piece.
4. Sandwich the map in between the two glass pieces, and put them back in the metal frame. Close the frame.
5. Attach two bright silver jump rings to the loop on the frame using the flat nose pliers.
6. Open the sterling plated necklace chain, and slide the two jump rings onto the chain.

For Rectangle Frame Necklace:
1.
Choose a hometown or favorite vacation spot map. The city name on the map should be no larger than the size of the frame, so scanning the image into a computer and resize it may be required.
2. Lay the map on the cutting mat. Take the plastic backing off of the back of an adhesive protective cover that comes with the frame charms. Place the protective cover over the area to be shown on the pendant.
3. Carefully trim the map to the outside of the protective cover with the cutting knife.
4. Cover the inside of the frame charm with double-sided tape. Place the adhesive cover and map in the frame on top of the double-sided tape and press firmly together.
5. Attach two antique silver jump rings to the loop on the frame using the flat nose pliers.
6. Open antique silver ball chain, and slide the jump rings onto the chain.
