Project Instructions

  • 1
    Note: two pair of needle nose pliers are needed to complete this project.
  • 2
    Necklace:
  • 3
    Slide an acrylic crystal bead and a wood sparkle bead onto an eye pin and form a large loop. Repeat this step to make three bead drops.
  • 4
    Use 6 mm jump rings to attach the three bead drops to one link in the continuous Gold chain.
  • 5
    Find the middle of the other end of the continuous Gold chain (across from the chain link the three bead drops were added to in step 4). Separate one metal link off the acrylic and metal link strand. Open the metal link and connect it to the chain links in the continuous Gold chain that measure one inch down from the middle on each side creating a chain loop.

    The crystal drops get tucked through the chain loop created in step 5. The necklace is worn lariat style.

  • 10
    Use a 6 mm jump ring to connect the loop at the bottom of the shepherd’s hook ear wire to the large loop at the top of the bead dangle.
