Project Description:

The Greeks thought that gold was a dense combination of water and sunlight. Whatever the make up, Gold has long been sought and worn by many. The juxtaposition of the triangular earring findings make up the focal of the necklace, with the rich hues of Swarovski Crystals, in Sun, Fern Green and Purple Velvet. Gold Plated oval chain completes the opulent piece.

Instructions:


  1. View the Y-Necklace Video for a quick how to on rosary loops.
  2. Cut two pieces of chain 7" in length and set aside.
  3. To create the focal point of the necklace, we will join the two earring findings together with crystal links.
  4. Open an eye pin slipping it into the first of the three loops and close.
  5. Slip on a fern bicone, bali spacer, purple velvet bicone, bali spacer, sun bicone.
  6. Create a rosary loop at the end of the link and add it to the second earring finding in the first of the three loops.
  7. Create the second link as above, but slide on a sun bicone, bali spacer, fern bicone and connecting it with another rosary loop .
  8. Create the last link with just the purple velvet bicone, thus creating the angle of the focal.
  9. Add the focal to the two pieces of chain with a beaded link, sun bicone, bali spacer, purple velvet, bali spacer, fern bicone, again using the rosary link technique connecting to the single loops on each end of the focal. To complete the necklace, add the lobster clasp to one end of the chain.

new way of looking at things
I have the triangle earrings and never thought about using them as a necklace accent. Love the project and can't wait to pull out my earrings to make me one.
