Evening Gala Necklace

PROJECT N3029
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This necklace pairs vintage antiqued gold toned Lucite rivoli links in Jet and Crystal with a pretty gold plated curb chain to create a chic necklace. This piece will go perfectly with any little black dress.
Instructions
This necklace has three tiers of chain. You will work on each chain individually, and then combine all three in the end.
  1. Begin by taking your chain and using your flush cutters, cut 10 lengths of 2� long chain, 2 lengths of 6�long chain and 8 lengths of 3� long lengths. Set your chain aside.
  2. Next, take the 36 jump rings needed for this project, and open them all with your chain nose pliers. Set aside.
  3. You will be repeating the same process of adding lengths of chain to rivoli links using jump rings throughout your necklace. You will begin with your shortest chain first. Take one length of 2" chain and slide on an open jump ring onto the last link of one side of the chain. Also slide on one of the side loops of one 19.5mm Crystal rivoli link. Close the jump ring with your chain nose pliers. Slide on another open jump ring onto the loop on the other side of the same rivoli link, and slide on the last link of another length of chain as well. Please refer to the photo for clarification.
  4. Repeat the process above with four more 2" lengths of chain again using jump rings and your pliers. Add your chain to a 22 mm Crystal rivoli link, a Jet rivoli link, a 22mm Crystal rivoli link and another 19.5mm Crystal rivoli link. The shortest chain of your necklace is done.
  5. For the middle chain, you will add your chain/rivoli links using the same process as before. Begin with a 6� long length of chain, and a Crystal rivoli link. Then add four mour lengths of 2� chain, with 4 19.5mm Crystal rivolis, followed by another 6� length of chain.
  6. For your longest length of chain, start with a 3� length of chain, followed by 7 Jet rivoli links and 7 lengths of 3� chain. Use the same process as before. If needed, please refer to the photo for size and color placement assistance.
  7. Now once all of your chains have been completed, lay them flat on your work space. Position them with the shortest chain on top, the middle chain in the center, followed by the longest chain at the bottom.
  8. Next, take the last link of the 3 lengths of chain (from one side of your necklace) and slide them all onto an open jump ring. Close the jump ring with your chain nose pliers.
  9. Do the same thing on the other side with the other 3 lengths of chain. Add them to an open jump ring and also slide on the loop from your lobster clasp onto the jump ring as well. Close the jump ring with your chain nose pliers.
  10. Your necklace is now done.
