We are very fortunate to work in an environment where almost everyone is creative and crazy for beads! Shannon, one of our very talented order fillers, created a version of this necklace with red beaded chain and an antique silver filigree centerpiece. I decided to borrow her idea and tweak it a bit for that bride-to-be who is having a somewhat causal wedding in the park or on the beach and loves vintage looking jewelry.

A note about working with beaded chain: This chain consists of simple loops. Cutting the chain is a bit wasteful, so when you need to resize the length of a piece, use chain nose pliers to gently open and close the links.
  1. Use chain nose pliers so that you have 2 pieces of 6mm beaded chain measuring about 7 inches each, 2 pieces of 6mm beaded chain measuring about 8 inches each and 2 pieces of 8mm beaded chain measuring about 9 inches each.
  2. Count out the open spaces on the outside of your filigree butterfly's wings. Notice that the butterfly has 6 open spots on the wings.
  3. Use your chain nose pliers to open an end link on the 6mm beaded chain that is 7 inches. Attach this link to the top (or first) link on the filigree. Close the link.
  4. Use your chain nose pliers to open an end link on the 6mm beaded chain that is 8 inches. Attach this link to the third link on the filigree. Close the link.
  5. Use your chain nose pliers to open an end link on the 8mm beaded chain that is 9 inches. Attach this link to the bottom link (this will be the bottom of the wing) on the filigree. Close the link.
  6. Using your chain nose pliers, open the end link on the 7 inch piece of chain. Attach the link to the first loop on your 3-to-1 connector. Close the link.
  7. Using your chain nose pliers, open the end link on the 8 inch piece of chain. Attach the link to the second loop on your 3-to-1 connector. Close the link.
  8. Using your chain nose pliers, open the end link on the 9 inch piece of chain. Attach the link to the last loop on your 3-to-1 connector. Close the link.
  9. Open a jump ring. Attach it to the single loop on the 3-to-1 connector. Then attach it to one half of your toggle clasp. Close the jump ring.
  10. Repeat steps 3 through 9 on the other side to complete the necklace.
