Project Description:

Crystal red magma is one of my favorite effects; the color just radiates warmth and beauty. When paired with gold, the result is a look of fiery elegance. I originally intended to do one earring project with these findings, but liked the look of the chain so much, I came up with two designs!

Instructions:


Creating the pair with the leaf dangles ABOVE the rivoli:
  1. Put a small drop of glue in the rivoli finding. You will want this glue to be applied to the point of the rivoli, so try to get your glue as close to the center as possible. Use tweezers to gently drop the rivoli into place. Make sure it is centered in the finding. Repeat this with the other rivoli and rivoli finding. Allow about 30 minutes to 1 hour dry time.
  2. Cut a piece of chain 7 links long.
  3. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the loop at the top of the rivoli finding then to the center (the fourth) link in the 7 link piece of chain. Close the jump ring.
  4. Open a jump ring. Pull the ends of the 7 link piece of chain together. Attach the jump ring to the 2 end links. Close the jump ring.
  5. Open the loop on the ear wire. Attach it to the jump ring added in step 4. Close the loop.
  6. Repeat steps 2 through 5 to complete the pair.
