A Little Luck Necklace

PROJECT N7032
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
Kelly green Vintaj patina forms a festive background for a tiny gold four-leaf clover in this delicate St. Patrick's Day necklace.
Instructions
In addition to the materials listed above, you will also need a paint brush to complete this project. These instructions will make a 16 inch necklace; for a longer or shorter necklace, adjust the length of chain used.
  1. First, watch our video on how to use Vintaj patinas. Use a dry paint brush to paint the inside of the Nunn Design bezel with the green patina. Wait a few hours for it to dry.
  2. Take one gold four-leaf clover charm and remove the attached jump ring with pliers. Use flush cutters to cut off the loop of the charm. File the rough edge until smooth with the Vintaj metal file.
  3. Place a dab of E6000 glue onto the back of the clover. Then place the clover into the center of the bezel and press so it sticks. Let the glue dry overnight.
  4. Cut a 16 inch length of gold chain.
  5. Open a jump ring. Slide it through the loop of the bezel pendant and also slide it onto the length of chain. Close the jump ring.
  6. Open another jump ring and slide it onto the last link of chain on one side of the necklace. Also slide on the loop of your clasp. Close the jump ring.
  7. Open another jump ring and slide it onto the last link of chain on the other side of the necklace. Close the jump ring.
  8. All finished!
