Hi, this is Kat with beadaholique.com and Jones and I just I think it's so pretty and so simple so I'm just gonna show you how quick and easy this project really is so for this project you're going to need three twenty-two gauge four millimeter open jump rings you're also going to need the 44 crystal pure drop pendant by Swarovski I have two feet of gold filled cable chain here and it's a three point two millimeters and I also have six inches of the four millimeter rondell crystal quartz gold wrapped wire chain oh that's a mouthful so to complete this project you're just going to need a pair of flush cutters and then two pairs of pliers to open your jump rings you're also going to need a ruler for this project so let's go ahead and get started so first things first taking our ruler we're going to measure out our two lengths of gemstone chain now for this first piece here we're going to need a length that is three and a quarter inches or if you'd like you can count the stones you're going to need ten stones so I'm just going to line that up on my ruler here and I'm actually going to go ahead and just count the stones just to make sure that I get the right measurement one two three four five six seven eight nine ten yes that's about three and a quarter inches so now in my finger here in my finger here I have the tenth stone and this is the eleventh so when I go to cut it I'm actually going to cut this loop right here so just take your flush cutters and cut that loop and now I have left my ten stones okay so I'm just going to set that aside for the next part to make this loop up here you're going to need two and a quarter inches or seven stones so now that I've cut this one off oops so now I've cut this edge off so I'm just going to go ahead and cut that off of my chain because I can't use that and just set that aside so now lining it up I have one two three four five six seven so I have one extra one there so I'm just going to cut that guy off and again cutting off that loop because I want to keep my seventh stone loop intact and just set that one aside alright so now we can't get started so go ahead and pick up one jump ring and we're just going to use our pliers to open it and you're just going to open it just as you would another jump ring and we're going to first loop on our large crystal pure drop pendant and taking our longer lengths are three and a quarter inches we're going to just add it to our jump ring and then close our jump ring very simple now to the other end of this chain we're going to take our two feet of cable chain using another jump ring just open that jump ring and loop on the chain and now our gemstone chain and close that up so I have this part attached to the that around this part attached to the entire length of chain with our two feet and I'm just going to move to the other side of this chain take my last jump ring open it up and now I'm going to hook on three things here I'm going to hook on my chain first just take the last link in that chain and now I'm going to hook on one loop and take the other end fold it up and you're just going to make a nice little loop there and now just take your plier and close that jump ring and now to put it together in our length you just thread your crystal pendant down through the loop and there is your lariat necklace it's very beautiful it hangs lovely and you can also adjust if this is too long for you like I said this gold chain is about 24 inches so if this is too long for you I suggest adjusting the length of chain of the gold this is a beautiful necklace to make as a gift or for yourself and this is the crystal gemstone lariat necklace and you can find all of these supplies at beadaholique.com you
