An Elegant Affair Choker

PROJECT N2174
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This choker sits high on the neck to show off the faceted Swarovski Crystal stone in an elegant color palette of silver and black.
Instructions
This necklace measures approximately 16 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length of chain on both sides respectively.
  1. Begin by setting the stones into their settings. You can do this by using a popsicle stick or the side of a nylon jaw pliers. Please watch our video here to see this easy technique. Once your stone is in the setting, set it aside. Repeat for all 12 stones.
  2. Using your flush cutters, cut two lengths of beading wire 12 inches each.
  3. Place a bead stopper about 2 inches from one end of both wires to hold them together as seen in this video: Using a Bead Stopper for Multi-strand projects.
  4. Next, string on two crystals to each strand, then string on one two hole setting with the rivoli stone. Continue this pattern until you have added all the settings then end with two more crystals on each strand.
  5. Onto both wires string on one crimp bead and one closed jump ring. Thread the wire back down through the crimp tube. Pull snug and adjust the wires to get them nice and even. Then using the crimpers, crimp the crimp tube. Use you flush cutters to trim any excess wire. Add a crimp cover. Move to the other side, remove the bead stopper and repeat this process.
  6. Cut off two lengths of chain, 2.5 inches each.
  7. Take one length of chain and attach it to one end of the strung piece by opening a jump ring and closing it around the chain and the closed jump ring on the strung piece. Move to the end of this chain and open another jump ring to attach one lobster clasp to the chain. Close the jump ring.
  8. Take the second length of chain and using a jump ring attach it to the other side of the strung piece as done above. Move to the other side of this chain and open another jump ring to attach one chain extender. Close the jump ring and you're all done.
