Locket of Love Necklace

PROJECT N3049
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This vintage-style Nunn Design locket necklace is the perfect Mother's Day gift. Antiqued gold plated chain and findings pair beautifully with gold velvet ribbon and a gold plated heart charm. Simply add in your favorite photo for a personalized touch.
Instructions
You will be using all of your chain for this necklace. If you would like to change the length of the necklace, simply adjust the chain.
  1. Using your flat nose pliers, open a Nunn Design etched jump ring and slide it onto the last link on one side of your 24� long chain. Close the jump ring.
  2. Open up another jump ring and slide it onto the last link on the other end of chain. Also slide on the loop from your Nunn Design clasp and close.
  3. Next, open up another jump ring and slide it through the loop on the top of your Nunn Design locket pendant. Before closing, find the center link on your chain (at the 12 inch mark) and slide on the jump ring and close.
  4. Cut a 12 inch length of velvet ribbon with your flush cutters.
  5. Take your ribbon length to where your two chains meet above your Nunn Design locket pendant and make a simple bow. Cut off any additional length (I left about 1� long lengths) and cut the ends at a diagonal leaving 2 decorative points on each length. See photo for placement assistance.
  6. Next, open up another jump ring, slide on your gold plated Nunn Design heart puff charm and slide it onto the 15th chain link on the left side of the necklace. See photo.
  7. Lastly, add in a 33mm sized photo for a personalized touch.
  8. You're done.
