Retired - Bianca Necklace

PROJECT N3066
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Bright and bold, this statement necklace features Dazzle It! blue resin cabochons and dangling gold tone spike beads for an edgy, on trend look.
Instructions
This necklace measures 20" long. For a necklace that is longer or shorter, simply adjust the chain length.
  1. Using your chain nose pliers, carefully open the chain links on your flattened curb link chain to make two 10.5" lengths of flattened chain. (The links are quite sturdy, so this will take some strength)
  2. Open a 8mm gold plated jump ring using your chain nose pliers. Before closing, slide on the loop from your gold plated jump ring and close.
  3. Open and attach another 8mm jump ring onto the other end of that same length of chain. Slide the jump ring through one of the holes on a Peacock Blue resin sew-on marbled stone. Close the jump ring.
  4. Open and add another jump ring onto the second hole of that same sew-on cabochon stone. Before closing it, slide the jump ring through one of the holes on a second sew-on stone and close.
  5. Repeat this process of connecting blue resin sew-on stones via open jump rings and close. You should have a total of 10 connected stones once done.
  6. Onto the open jump ring connected to the 10th resin sew-on stone, attach the last link from one side of your second length of chain and close.
  7. Open another jump ring and attach it onto the last link on the other side of that same length of chain and close.
  8. Now you will be attaching gold tone spike beads using smaller gold plated jump rings.
  9. Flip your necklace over. Using your chain nose pliers, open up a 5mm gold plated jump ring, slide it onto the second 8mm jump ring and close. Open up another 5mm jump ring, slide on the loop from a gold tone spike bead and attach it onto that first 5mm jump ring.
  10. Repeat this process until you have 7 gold tone spike beads dangling from your necklace.
  11. Close your clasp and you're done!
