Retired - Pumpkin Fields Set

PROJECT S8013
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This festive bracelet and earring set features a fall color palette painted onto antiqued brass fishbone chain. The design uses Vintaj Patina in Rust, Golden Agate, and Moss. Dangling Czech glass pumpkin beads add the perfect autumn accent.
Instructions
This bracelet uses a chain extender for adjustable length from 6 to 7.75 inches. For a longer bracelet, you may need to purchase more fishbone chain. You will need a cup of water and some paper towels to complete this project.
  1. To see how to paint Vintaj Patina onto fishbone chain, please watch this video.
  2. To prepare your chains: Begin by using flush cutters to cut 5 inches of fishbone chain for your bracelet, and two 1 inch lengths of chain for your earrings. Based on what you have learned in the video, use a paint brush to paint each link in the following order: Rust, Golden Agate, Moss. Repeat this pattern for the length of each chain, then let dry for at least 20 minutes. Flip the chains over and paint the opposite side of each link in the same manner. Again let dry for 20 minutes.
  3. To make your pumpkin dangles: Onto a head pin, slide one glass pumpkin bead. Then slide on one stem bead with the larger side facing the pumpkin (see photo for reference). Above the beads, use pliers to make a wrapped wire loop. Repeat this step two more times to prepare the pumpkin dangles for your earrings, leaving the loops open for attachment. Set aside.
  4. To attach the clasp and chain extender to your bracelet: Slide one side of your s-clasp onto one end link of your painted fishbone chain. Now use pliers to open the end link of your chain extender the same way you would open a jump ring, and slide on the other end link of your painted fishbone chain. Also slide on the wrapped wire loop of one pumpkin dangle. Close the link.
  5. To assemble your earrings: Onto the end link of a 1 inch chain that you painted in step two, latch on the wrap of a pumpkin bead from step three (see photo for reference). Close the wrap. Next, slide the loop of your earring hook onto the top link of your fishbone chain. Close the loop. Repeat this step to assemble your other earring.
  6. Enjoy your jewelry set!
