Retired - Christmas Wreath Necklace

PROJECT N2016
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This red, green, and gold wire wrapped wreath hangs beautifully around your neck to show your holiday spirit.
Instructions
This finished necklace will measure about 18".
  1. Snip off about 3 feet of wire, this should be enough to wrap the whole pendant.
  2. You will notice that on the wreath pendant there are two holes, one at 12 o'clock and one at 6 o'clock. You will begin the wire wrapping at 12 o'clock.
  3. Thread an inch of wire through the hole and wrap that inch around the wreath, just to secure it. Now switching to the longer end of the wire, pick up two green seed beads and wrap the wire around the wreath securing the seed beads to the front of the wreath.
  4. Now to wrap one of the holly leaves, pick up one red bead and 6 green beads, slide them all the way down the wire. Now you are going to bend the wire between the 3rd and 4th green seed beads, twist the wire to form the leaf and continue wrapping the wreath.
  5. You will continue in this manner, to wrap the green seed beads two at a time, while adding in the holly leaves and the occasional red bead.
  6. When you get back up to the 12 o'clock position secure the wire by wrapping it a few times and tucking it back through the hole. Snip the ends.
  7. Once the wreath is finished, open one 8mm jump ring and loop it around the top of the wreath, close the jump ring.
  8. Cut off about 18" of chain and thread the chain through that jump ring.
  9. At each end of the chain, open a 6mm jump ring and close it around the final link in the chain. To one end of the chain, attach the lobster clasp to the 6mm jump ring and the chain.
