Select the Scrabble® tiles and arranged them in order.
|Tile with four holes|
Since we used vintage wooden tiles, the studio smelled really nice when my daughter did the drilling. Not sure exactly what wood these tiles were made from, but the aroma told us they were quality hard wood.
|Add jump rings to tiles|
Feed a jump ring through each drilled hole. Close the jump rings using your pliers.
Use your pliers to attach the tiles to form a chain by adding a jump ring between the jump rings on each tile. Check each jump ring to be sure it is closed.
Make an "S" or "figure 8" link and attach it to the center drilled hole at one end of the bracelet.
Add the clasp to the other end of the bracelet.
