Blue Chalcedony Briolette Necklace

PROJECT N738
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Faceted glass briolettes in stunning blue chalcedony have been neatly wire wrapped and hung from a delicate bright silver plated roll chain in this elegant necklace design.
Instructions
The instructions for this project make a 16 inch necklace. If you want a longer or shorter necklace, adjust the instructions accordingly. The kit ingredients will allow you to make up to a 24 inch necklace.
  1. Before beginning this project, please watch the video: How to Wire Wrap a Briolette. After you have made your initial wraps, you will want to keep wrapping until you cover the side drilled holes on each briolette.
  2. Based upon what you learned in the video, cut a 12 inch piece of artistic wire and wire wrap one of your 13mm x 13mm glass faceted heart cut briolettes in blue chalcedony.
  3. Repeat the previous step with 2 other 13mm x 13mm glass faceted heart cut briolettes in blue chalcedony and 4 6mm x 6mm glass faceted heart cut briolettes in blue chalcedony.
  4. Cut a 15.5 inch length of chain using your flush cutters.
  5. Find the middle link of your cut chain length. Open a 4mm jump ring and link it to one of the large wire wrapped briolettes as well as the middle chain link. Close the jump ring.
  6. Count 8 chain links from the middle one and connect a small wire wrapped briolette (using a jump ring) to this chain 8th chain link.
  7. Count 8 more chain links from the last one you connected the small briolette to and connect a large wire wrapped briolette (using a jump ring) to this chain 8th chain link.
  8. Count 8 more chain links from the last one you connected the large briolette to and connect a small wire wrapped briolette (using a jump ring) to this chain 8th chain link.
  9. Repeat the last 3 steps on the other side of your necklace.
  10. Open a 4mm jump ring and link it to the end chain link on your chain as well as another jump ring. Close the jump ring.
  11. On the other side of your necklace, open a 4mm jumbo ring and connect it to the end chain link as well as your lobster clasp. Close the jump ring.
  12. Enjoy!
