Golden Summer Necklace

PROJECT N2267
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This long gold necklace has shimmering Czech Fire Polished beads in a warm summery pink palette dangling from wrapped wire loops for maximum sparkle.
Instructions
This necklace measures approximately 36 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length of chain on both sides respectively.
  1. To begin, decide on the length of the chain you want and find the center link. To this center link is where you will add your first dangle.
  2. String one 4mm bead on to one head pin. Make a wrapped wire loop around the center link of the chain by following the technique shown in our video: How to Attach Wire Loops to Chain.
  3. Count over four links to the right and repeat the above step with one 6mm bead.
  4. Count over four links and add a 4mm bead. Continue in this pattern until you have added twelve 6mm beads and twelve 4mm beads. The center 4mm bead is the 13th bead. Repeat on the other side to mirror this side.
  5. Open one jump ring and attach it to one end of the chain. Close the jump ring.
  6. Open another jump ring and attach it to the other end of the chain and to one lobster clasp. Close the jump ring.
