1. I saved the used 1" plastic cartridges from my husband's nicotine
replacement therapy supplies, removed the foil end covers and cleaned
them leaving the printed symbols and words.
2. I attached a five inch coil of copper wire to the top of the
3. From the copper sheet, I cut a rectangle small enough to pass
through the cartridge and hammered each participant's initials into the
4. I made the copper rectangle into a dangle for the inside of the
cartridge with copper wire, copper jump rings, and a bead. The bead is
on a jump ring and attached through a hole in the bottom of the tiny
copper rectangle. To finish the dangle, I made a connector with a four
inch copper wire by forming a ring at the bottom end of the wire and
attached it through a hole in the top of the copper rectangle.
5. I threaded the dangle through the cartridge by inserting the top of
the wire through the center hole of the copper coil on top of the
cartridge. With the remaining wire coming out of the top of the
cartridge, I fashioned a ring and wrapped the ends back around the wire
until it was flush with the top of the charm. Now the dangle was inside
the cartridge and able to swing freely from the top.
6. Finally, I made another five inch copper wire coil and attached it
to the bottom of the cartridge.
