PROJECT N8056
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
Rows of light grey Swarovski Crystal pearls dangle along textured scalloped chain in this vintage style necklace. The regal and delicate design uses a chain extender for adjustable length and a flattering fit.
Instructions
You will be connecting the chains in this project by opening and closing the tiny jump rings that are in between the scalloped links in your chain. This necklace uses a chain extender for adjustable length from 15.5 to 18 inches.
  1. Begin by measuring two lengths of 11.7mm scalloped bar chain that are 14.5 inches (28 links) and 5 inches (9 links) respectively. Use pliers to open and close the jump rings between the chain links you are separating. Note: be sure to keep a jump ring attached on either end of the 5 inch chain.
  2. To connect your two chain lengths: Use pliers to open a jump ring on one end of your 5 inch chain. Slide this jump ring onto the jump ring between two links of your 14.5 inch chain that is positioned 5.75 inches (eleven links) from one end. Close the jump ring.
  3. Repeat the above step, this time opening the jump ring on the other end of your 5 inch chain and sliding it onto the jump ring eleven links in from the opposite end of your 14.5 inch chain (see photo for reference).
  4. To hang your pear shaped pearls: Onto a headpin, slide on one pearl bead. Above the bead, make a wrapped wire loop, latching the loop onto the jump ring of your 14.5 inch chain that lies 6.75 inches from one end (see photo for reference). Close the wrap. Repeat this step twice more for a total of three pear shaped pearls spaced one link apart, hanging from the jump rings at the center of your 14.5 inch chain.
  5. To hang your 4mm round pearls: Repeat the process described in the above step, this time using six 4mm round pearls. Latch the wrapped wire loops onto the jump rings between the links at the center of your 5 inch chain as shown in the photo.
  6. To attach your clasp: Open a 3x4mm oval jump ring and slide on the end link of your 14.5 inch chain. Also slide on the loop of your clasp. Close the jump ring. Repeat this process to attach the end link of your chain extender to the opposite side of your necklace. Enjoy!
The measurements of this design will work with various sizes of scalloped bar chain; however, the number of links specified may vary according to the size of chain.
