Description

The floral link has a wide end that allows multiple strands. So I added two beaded strands and one chain strand to each side using the chain strand to determine the length, thus allowing the outer strands a bit of "swag" or drape! I hope this project sparks some ideas of your own!

Karla Schafer, Aunties Beads Designer


Instructions:

  1. Cut (2) chain lengths to 14 links or just under 2".
  2. Attach the chain to the center loop of the 3-strand slide lock clasp with a jump ring or jump lock. (note: when using a slide lock clasp in a design, leave it put together or closed.)
  3. Attach the other end of the chain to the end of the link finding, repeating for both sides.
  4. Cut 4" or so of beading wire and thread one end into a wire guardian, slipping it onto the top loop of the slide lock clasp, then string the crimp and crimp it with the Magical Crimp Forming Tool.
  5. For the Rondelle style, string (8) rondelles of chosen color and repeat above steps for the wire guardian and crimp, placing the strand above the chain strand onto the link and the upper loop of clasp. Repeat for the opposite side.
  6. For the Rondelle style, again string (8) rondelles of chosen color and repeat above steps for the wire guardian and crimp, placing the strand below the chain strand onto the link and the lower loop of clasp. Repeat for the opposite side.
  7. For the Jade style, string (7) 6mm jade rounds of chosen color and repeat above steps for the wire guardian and crimp, placing the strand above the chain strand onto the link. Repeat for the opposite side, but place it in the bottom loop of the clasp and below the chain strand onto the link finding.
  8. For the Jade style, string (4) 10mm jade rounds of chosen color and repeat above steps for the wire guardian and crimp, placing the strand above the chain strand onto the link. Repeat for the opposite side, but place it in the bottom loop of the clasp and below the chain strand onto the link finding.
