Feathered Out Necklace

PROJECT N2187
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Show off your summer festival spirit with this long Y necklace featuring a Centerline feather pendant. Choose your favorite Miyuki Delica color to make this design uniquely you!
Instructions
This necklace measures approximately 29 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length of chain on both sides respectively.
  1. Please watch our video: How to Add Beads to a Centerline Pendant. In this video you will see how to add the beads to the pendant. For this design you will add 18 beads using the golden yellow Nymo thread. Once you have completed your pendant, set it aside.
  2. Cut the chain into two lengths of 13.25 inches long and one length of 1 inch. Set aside.
  3. Take one headpin and string on one gemstone bead. Make a simple wire loop.
  4. Next, open the loop of the simple wire loop, same as you would a jump ring and attach it to one end of the 1 inch length of chain. Close the loop.
  5. Move to the other side of this chain and open a jump ring, attach it to the end of this chain and to the bottom loop of the feather pendant. Close the jump ring.
  6. Move to the top of the feather and add another jump ring. Close the jump ring.
  7. Open another jump ring and attach one end of both 13.25 lengths of chain. Attach this jump ring to the one at the top of the feather.
  8. Move to the left chain and open one jump ring and attach it to the end link. Close the jump ring.
  9. Move to the right chain and open one jump ring, attach it to the last link as well as to a lobster clasp. Close the jump ring and you're all done!
