Padme Necklace

PROJECT N8017
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
A golden trellis of TierraCast lotus flowers are wire wrapped with curved bar chain and Scarabaean Green Swarovski crystal pearls in this delicate statement necklace.
Instructions
This necklace includes a chain extender to allow for an adjustable length of 15 to 17 inches. As you work, please continually refer to the photo for orientation of the various lotus charms, beads, and connectors.
  1. Begin by using flush cutters to cut 1.5 inches of 24 gauge wire. Create a wrapped wire loop on one end, attaching it onto the bottom loop of one small lotus charm before closing the wrap.
  2. String one 4mm pearl, one lotus bead, and one 4mm pearl onto your wire, and create another wrapped wire loop, attaching it onto one side point of your large lotus connector.
  3. Cut a 7 inch length of bar chain. Open a 5mm jump ring and slide on the end link of your chain. Also slide on the top center petal of the small lotus charm from the above step. Close the jump ring.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 to assemble the opposite side of your necklace.
  5. Repeat step 1 to create a third section consisting of small lotus charm and wire wrapped beads. This time, attach your wire wrap onto the center petal of your large lotus connector, hanging downward from the center of your necklace.
  6. To create your beaded dangles, begin by cutting 3 individual links of bar chain. Open a jump ring and sliding on all 3 links facing the same direction. Close the jump ring.
  7. Next, string a pearl onto a headpin and create a wrapped wire loop, attaching it onto the bottom hole of one hanging chain link. Repeat this step twice more to hang pearls from your other two hanging chain links.
  8. To complete your hanging centerpiece, open a jump ring and slide on the center petal of your downward facing small lotus charm. Also slide on the jump ring holding your hanging chain links with pearl dangles. Close the jump ring.
  9. To attach your clasp, open a jump ring. Slide it through the last link on one side of the chain, and also slide on the loop of your clasp. Close the jump ring.
  10. Open another jump ring. Slide on the last link of chain on the other side of the necklace, and also slide on the end link of your chain extender. Close the jump ring. Enjoy your necklace!
