If you just want to make a pendant with a name in it you can skip pulling it into cane and call it done.
Same thing as that tutorial minus pulling it into cane. Blow the bubble, write the name, then...

Seems more logical to first enter the "Boro Room" then conveniently find the tips and techs etc for boro there. The general tips and techs section could easily house all other COE's.
