Retired - Age of Jazz Necklace

Designer: Esther Lee
Skill Level: Beginner
Flirty and swingy, this necklace would have looked stunning on a flapper from the 1920's. Just as long necklaces were fashionable then, they still are today. There is a trick to this necklace too, most of the beads are already linked together - making it look complicated to make but it's not!
  1. Cut a 17" length of your ladder chain.
  2. Open 1 gunmetal jump ring and link it to the two ends of your Czech Fire Polish Glass Bead link chain, thus making them form a circle. Before closing the jump ring, also link onto it one end of your cut ladder chain. Close the jump ring. (Tip: If there are two larger beads at the ends of the Czech Fire Polish chain you receive, the chain might not sit correctly when joined together. If that is the case, you may want to remove a single bead from the end of the Czech Fire Polish Glass Bead link chain.)
  3. Take a ruler and measure 18" along the length of your circular Czech Fire Polish link chain. At that point, open and link a jump ring to one of the black simple loops and also link to it the other end of your chain. Close the jump ring.
  4. All done!!
