Project Description:

Long and layered draped chain necklaces are hot, hot, hot right now. The hand wrapped Czech glass chain lends itself beautifully to creating this look. Combining turquoise and coral with antique copper elements adds to the drama and appeal of this stunning piece.

Instructions:


  1. Use E6000 to adhere your rose bead to the antique copper filigree finding. Set aside and let dry.
  2. Cut your wrapped turquoise chain into the following segments: a 9" piece, a 13" piece and two 5" pieces. Cut your wrapped copper and clear chain into an 11" segment and two 5" segments.
  3. Open an 8mm jump ring. Attach your 9", 11" and 13" pieces of chain to the jump ring. Close the jump ring.
  4. Attach an 8mm jump ring to the other ends of the chain. Close the jump ring.
  5. Cut a 14 inch piece of beading wire. String a crimp bead toward one end. Run the beading wire through the jump ring between the 9" and 11" pieces of chain then back down through the crimp bead. Crimp.
  6. String seed beads until you are just shy of 10" including the crimp bead.
  7. String a crimp bead. Run the wire through the other 8mm jump ring between the 9" and 11" pieces of chain then back down through the crimp bead and a few nearby seed beads. Crimp. Cut excess wire.
  8. Cut a 16" piece of beading wire. Repeat steps 5 through 7, this time attaching your beading wire between the 11" and 13" pieces of chain. String your seed beads so you have a 12" strand including the crimp beads at each end.
  9. Open a 5mm jump ring. Attach it to one of the 8mm jump rings. Attach it to the hole on the stamped link. Close the jump ring.
  10. Open a 5mm jump ring. Attach it to the other 8mm jump ring and to the diamond edge of the filigree piece. Close the jump ring. Add another jump ring for security.
  11. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the other side of the stamped link. Attach it to one 5" segment of turquoise chain and one 5" segment of clear/copper chain. Close the jump ring.
  12. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the ends of the 5" pieces of chain just added and then to half the toggle. Close the jump ring.
  13. Repeat steps 11 and 12 on the other side to complete the piece.
