Retired - Absinth Leaflet Necklace

PROJECT N8008
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
An assemblage of mixed metals gives a hand-wrought feel to this wire wrapped pendant, accompanied by a Swarovski crystal pearl and strung on 3mm Absinth green leather cord.
Instructions
This necklace measures 18 inches total. To modify the size, adjust the length of leather on either side respectively.
  1. Use flush cutters to cut 6 inches of 24 gauge wire and create a wrapped wire loop at one end, stringing on your circular stamping blank and gold leaf charm (see photo for reference) before closing the wrap. Clip your wire.
  2. Please watch the video: How to Create a Wire Wrapped Bail. String on one Swarovski crystal pearl at the top of your piece and create a triple coil bail as shown in the video. Your pendant is now complete.
  3. Using flush cutters, cut 17.5 inches of leather cord. String on your pendant, positioning it at the center of the cord.
  4. Next, take one 5mm gold crimp cover and close it gently over the leather to one side of your pendant so that it lays flush with the bail. Repeat this step on the opposite side of the bail, so your pendant sits stationary at the center of your cord.
  5. To attach a clasp to your necklace, take one foldover crimp and attach it to one end of the cord. Repeat this step on the opposite side of the necklace.
  6. Now open a jump ring. Slide it through the loop on the end of one foldover crimp, and also slide on the loop of your clasp. Close the jump ring.
  7. Open another jump ring. Slide it through the loop on the other folder crimp. Close the jump ring. Enjoy your necklace!
