Paddle Necklace

PROJECT N809
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
This modern looking necklace features three shiny and sleek paddles suspended in the middle of an open frame pendant. The fun play on shapes and mix of metal colors adds to the drama of this design.
Instructions
The necklace instructions create a long 36 inch necklace. You can easily make it shorter if you want by just cutting the chain to a shorter length.
  1. Cut your chain in half and set aside.
  2. Thread an eye pin through one side of your open frame pendant. Place onto the eye pin 4 micro spacer beads as well as 3 paddles with the longest one in the center. The large loops of the paddles will slide over the micro spacers.
  3. Next thread the wire end of the eye pin through the hole on the other side of your open frame pendant, thus suspending the beads and the paddles in the center. Create a simple wire loop right where the wire exits the outside of the open frame pendant. Trim off excess wire.
  4. Open the simple wire loop you just made (the same way you would open a jump ring) and link an end chain link to it. Close the loop. Repeat this process with the eye of the eye pin on the other side of your pendant and with the other length of cut chain.
  5. To finish your necklace, attach a 4mm jump ring to the last chain link of both your chains. Onto one of those 4mm jump rings link on the lobster clasp and onto the other one, link on the 5mm closed jump ring.
  6. All done!
