PROJECT N8054
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
The tide pool tones and textures in this necklace bring to mind a tranquil seaside stroll. The design uses Zola Elements components including a chevron cut-out pendant, ready-made seed bead cable chain, and white pearl acetate findings.
Instructions
This necklace uses a chain extender for adjustable length from 16 to 18 inches.
  1. To assemble one side of your necklace: Begin by using flush cutters to cut two lengths of seed bead chain that are 5 beaded links (2.5 inches) each. Open a 4mm jump ring and slide on one end link of each chain. Also slide on a hole of one acetate connector link. Close the jump ring.
  2. Cut two lengths of seed bead chain that are 3 beaded links (1.5 inches) each. Open another jump ring and slide on one end link of each of these chains. Also slide on the other hole of your acetate connector link from step 1. Close the jump ring.
  3. Open another jump ring and slide on the opposite end links of your chains from step 2. Also slide on a hole of another acetate connector link. Close the jump ring.
  4. Repeat step 2 to attach another two sections of 3 beaded links to the opposite hole of your acetate connector link from step 3.
  5. Now open another jump ring and slide on the opposite end links of your chains from step 4. Also slide on the loop on one side of your chevron pendant. Close the jump ring.
  6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 to assemble the opposite side of your necklace.
  7. To embellish your pendant: Begin by cutting ten lengths of seed bead chain that are 3 beaded links (1.5 inches) each. Open a jump ring and slide on one end link of one of these chain lengths. Also slide on the end hole on one side of your pendant. Close the jump ring. Repeat this step 9 more times to attach your remaining chain lengths, skipping a hole on the connector after every two chain dangles (see photo for reference).
  8. Open a jump ring and slide on the hole of one acetate bar. Also slide on a hole on your pendant located between two seed bead dangles. Close the jump ring. Repeat this step 3 more times to attach your remaining 3 acetate bars to the holes between the seed bead dangles, following the order shown in the photo.
  9. To attach your clasp: Use pliers to open the jump ring connecting the clasp on your chain extender, and remove the chain extender. Keep the loop of the clasp on the jump ring, and slide on the two end links of the chains on one side of your necklace. Close the jump ring.
  10. Open another jump ring and slide on one end link of your chain extender. Also slide on the two end links of the chains on the other side of your necklace. Enjoy!
