Chevron Blues Necklace

PROJECT N2250
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This necklace features shades of blue from beaded chain, seed beads, and Vintaj Patina. Personalize the look with your favorite colors.
Instructions
This necklace measures approximately 22 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length of chain on both sides respectively. You will also need paper towel for this project.
  1. Begin by using the Vintaj Patina to add color to the tassel. Take the paint brush and run it along the length of the tassel with the deep turquoise color first, then with the ocean pearl color. Use the paper towel to wipe off any excess. Set the tassel aside.
  2. To create the brick stitch chevron, please watch our video: How to Brick Stitch Shapes. Also see our Printer Friendly PDF for Full Color Beading Pattern. Also for helpful tips see: Tips for Advanced Brick Stitch Patterns. Follow along with the pattern to create the chevron. Tie off and weave in your threads.
  3. Cut the chain into two equal lengths of 10 inches.
  4. Open one jump ring and attach it to the bottom point of the chevron and attach it to the jump ring on the tassel.
  5. Attach one jump ring to one of the top points of the chevron and attach one length of chain. Move to the end of the chain and attach one more jump ring. Repeat on the other side. When you attach the jump ring on the end of the chain, attach one lobster clasp before closing the jump ring.
