Lenore Necklace Project
The name Lenore was my Great Grandmother's middle name, this piece just evoked elegant memories of her, I did have the pleasure of knowing her and she was a tiny elegant lady that I think would have adorned this Victorian inspired style! The delicate antique copper link with rose drop and chain detail work well with the blue opal ab chinese crystal helix beads, one of my new favorites!

Cut the curb chain into the following lengths: (4pc) 1 3/8"; (1pc)2 1/2" and set aside. On an eye pin add the rose connector at the loop of your choice and close. Drop a 3mm antique copper round, helix, 3mm anthique copper round onto the eye pin and create a rosary loop. Add the drop to the middle loop of the Lydia Filigree connector. Using the 3mm jump rings, attach one end of the chain to each of the side loops of the rose connector. Drop a helix, 3mm antique copper bead on a head pin and start a loop. Add the drop to the center loop of the rose finding and close the wraps trimming any excess wire. Add a 1 3/8" piece of chain to each end of the Lydia Filigree connector using the 3mm jump rings. You will bead into the free end of the chain connected to the filigree, cut a 12" piece of beading wire and crimp one end into the chain and string the following: 3mm antique copper round, (3)helix, for a total of (7) 3 set helix sections, ending in a 3mm antique copper round.
