Finding Strength Necklace

PROJECT N2214
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
This long Y necklace features a Nunn Design hammered cross pendant and starcut labradorite gemstones.
Instructions
This necklace measures about 26 Inches with a center focal drop of 4 inches.
  1. Take one eye pin and string on one gemstone bead. Make a simple wire loop. Repeat this step 7 more times for a total of 8 gemstone links.
  2. This chain has open links so you can open them same as you would a jump ring. Open one chain link and attach it to the cross pendant and to one gemstone link. Close the link.
  3. Open one more chain link and attach it to the other side of the gemstone link you just added. To the chain link attach one more gemstone link and close the chain link.
  4. Then using two chain links, attach one to the gemstone link you just added and then attach this chain to another chain and to the organic hoop. (Please see project photo for reference).
  5. For the main part of the necklace, continue in the same manner. Attach a length of four chain links, one gemstone link, four chain links, one gemstone link, four chain links, and one gemstone link. Repeat going up the other side.
  6. Then add the left over chain to connect the two pieces and create the length. If you want to adjust the length, please do so in this portion. If you need a clasp, I recommend using a lobster clasp.
