Retired - Copper Garden Necklace

PROJECT N7057
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
A Crystal Clay pendant textured with a floral pattern is surrounded by artisan copper beads in this mixed metal necklace featuring Nunn Design components.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 24 inch necklace. For a longer necklace, you will need to buy an additional foot of ball chain. For a shorter necklace, simply cut the ball chain to your desired length.
  1. First, please watch our video on how to use Crystal Clay. Put on the disposable gloves that come with your Crystal Clay.
  2. Next, watch our video on how to make a textured Crystal Clay pendant using the JudiKins Clay Squisher. In this video you will see how to mix and shape the Crystal Clay in the bezel, how to coat the texturing pad with mica powder, and how to press the clay into the texture so it takes the pattern and fills out the bezel.
  3. When your pendant is done, let the clay cure for 14 to 16 hours or overnight.
  4. Take your length of ball chain and string 1 faceted copper drop bead (narrow end first), 2 faceted copper round beads, the loop of your Crystal Clay pendant, 2 faceted copper round beads, and 1 faceted copper drop bead (wide end first). Slide the beads to the center of the ball chain.
  5. Using pliers, attach 1 Nunn Design ball chain connector to the last ball on one side of the necklace, and clamp it shut. Repeat this step for the other side of the necklace.
  6. Open an oval jump ring. Slide it through the loop of the ball chain connector on one side of the necklace, and also slide on the loop of your clasp. Close the jump ring.
  7. Open another oval jump ring. Slide it through the loop of the ball chain connector on the other side of the necklace. Close the jump ring.
  8. Enjoy your necklace!
