Pearls in Springtime Necklace

PROJECT N2265
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Celebrate Spring with a fringe of Swarovski crystals and pearls in a delicate pastel color palette.
Instructions
This necklace measures approximately 18 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length of chain on both sides respectively.
  1. Take one head pin and string on one green pearl. Make a simple wire loop. Set aside. Repeat with one more green pearl, two pink pearls, two yellow pearls and five opal crystals.
  2. Next cut 2 lengths of chain, 8 inches each.
  3. For the chain fringe it may be easier to count the links to get them to lay right instead of a length in inches. In order of the fringe: 18 links, then 13, 25, 4, 10, 22, 26, 10, 14, 16, and 21.
  4. Following along in the order of fringe lengths above, attach the pink pearl to the 18 link chain by opening the simple loop, same as you would a jump ring. Attach a jump ring to the other end of the chain. Close the jump ring. Set aside.
  5. Same as above attaching a jump ring to each end, attach a crystal to the 13 links. Attach a green pearl to the 25 links. Attach a crystal to the 4 links. Attach a yellow pearl to the 10 links. Attach a crystal to the 22 links. Attach a pink pearl to the 26 links. Attach a crystal to the 10 links. Attach a green pearl to the 14 links. Attach a crystal to the 16 links. Attach a yellow pearl to the 21 links.
  6. In that same order slide them onto the open frame hoop.
  7. Next string on one crystal onto one eye pin and make a simple wire loop. Repeat five more times.
  8. By opening and closing the simple wire loops attach a length of three to one end of the open frame hoop and to one length of the chain that is 8 inches. Repeat on the other side.
  9. To one end of the chain, attach one jump ring and one lobster clasp. To the other chain, attach one jump ring to finish the clasp.
More chain has been suggested to accommodate any size changes and alternative fringe lengths if you desire.
