Libra Zodiac Necklace

PROJECT N7051
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
A finely-detailed, double-sided TierraCast zodiac charm, featuring the Libra sun sign, is complemented by tourmaline gemstone chain, one of October's birthstones.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 16 inch necklace. For a longer or shorter necklace, adjust the length of gold chain or gemstone chain on both sides of the necklace. If you want to make the necklace longer, please be advised that you will need to purchase an extra foot of gold chain or extra inches of gemstone chain.
  1. Using flush cutters, cut the tourmaline gemstone chain into two 2 inch pieces. Set these aside.
  2. Next, cut two 6 inch pieces of gold chain.
  3. Open a 4mm jump ring. Slide it through the loop at the top of the charm, and also slide on the first link of one length of gemstone chain. Close the jump ring.
  4. Open another 4mm jump ring. Slide it through the loop at the top of the charm, and also slide on the first link of the second length of gemstone chain. Close the jump ring.
  5. Open a 3mm jump ring. Slide on the last link of one length of gemstone chain, and also slide on the first link of one length of gold chain. Close the jump ring.
  6. Open another 3mm jump ring. Slide on the last link of the second length of gemstone chain, and also slide on the first link of the second length of gold chain. Close the jump ring.
  7. Open a 4mm jump ring and slide on the last link of gold chain on one side of the necklace. Also slide on the loop of your clasp. Close the jump ring.
  8. Open another 4mm jump ring and slide on the last link of gold chain on the other side of the necklace. Close the jump ring.
