Retired - Golden Ellipses Necklace

PROJECT N3078
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Simple and elegant, this gold plated necklace is a perfect accessory for every day wear. Dress it up with other layered necklaces or wear it alone for a subtle, golden look.
Instructions
  1. Begin by cutting a 20 inch length of gold plated beading chain using your flush cutters.
  2. Next, using your chain nose pliers, affix a gold plated crimping bead with loop onto one side of your chain. To do this, crimp the crimp bead just the same as you would a regular one, just make sure to crimp closer to the end without the loop vs. right near the loop.
  3. Next, slide on 8 Bali style rough 22k gold vermeil nugget beads.
  4. Then, crimp a second crimping bead with loop onto the other side of your chain.
  5. Next, using chain nose pliers, open a gold plated 6mm jump ring and slide it onto the loop from one of your crimping beads. Before closing, also slide on the loop from a gold plated lobster clasp and close.
  6. That's it!
