Retired - Delia Necklace

PROJECT N3050
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
Make this layered vintage-inspired necklace using Czech glass Rizo seed beads in Lime Vitrail and Amethyst, Vintaj chain and a patinated Vintaj filigree focal. Finish the look with a sprinkling of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS rhinestone flatbacks in Hematite for a touch of elegance.
Instructions
For this project you will need a clean work space to paint on and a paint brush.
  1. Using your flush cutters, cut 2 lengths of chain, one at 20� and the other at 25�. Set aside.
  2. Gather 19 Amethyst and Lime Vitrail Rizo beads. I used 5 Amethyst beads and 14 Lime Vitrail beads, but you can use a different combination if you'd like. Also gather 19 4mm jump rings.
  3. Lay your shorter 20� chain onto your work space. Your chain is made up of smaller and larger links. You will be attaching Rizo beads onto the smaller links on your chain using open jump rings.
  4. Find the center 10" mark of your 20� chain.
  5. Open a 4mm jump ring with your chain nose pliers and slide on a Rizo bead, then slide your jump ring onto a smaller link in the center 10" point of your chain length. Close the jump ring.
  6. Repeat the process of attaching 9 more Rizo beads using open jump rings onto the smaller links of your chain, at either side of the Rizo bead you just attached. Close the jump rings back up. Set your chain aside for now.
  7. Next, take your Vintaj Natural Brass Diamond Trellis Filigree Stamping and using your Eurotool EuroPunch, punch a hole at the tip of one side of the stamping. (You will be attaching a jump ring through this hole). See photo.
  8. With your pliers, open up a 4mm jump ring and and slide it onto the small chain link that is at the 12.5" mark of your 25" long chain. Before closing, also slide on a larger 7mm jump ring. Close the 4mm jump ring.
  9. Open up the 7mm jump ring and slide on your stamping, through the hole you just punched and close.
  10. Next, watch the video on How to Use Vintaj Patinas and Glaze. .
  11. Take your Vintaj Natural Brass Diamond Trellis Filigree Stamping and using your paint brush, add a thin layer of Vintaj Patina in Moss Green. While the patina is still wet, use the side of your Vintaj Relief Block Vintaj Relief Block to sand the raised areas of your stamping to show off the detail. Wait a few minutes for your stamping to dry.
  12. Watch the video on How to Use a Magical Pick.
  13. Once your stamping is dry, take your Hypo Cement glue and using the applicator tip, add 12 tiny dabs of glue throughout your stamping. Refer to the photo for placement assistance.
  14. Following what you learned in the video, use your Magical Pick to pick up each SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS rhinestone flatback in Hematite and place it flat side down onto the glue.
  15. Wait a few minutes for your stamping to dry.
  16. Next, open up a 4mm jump ring with your pliers and slide on the last link from one side of both your lengths of chain. Close the jump ring.
  17. Open up another jump ring and slide on the last links from the 2 sides of chain from the other side.
  18. Also slide on the loop from your lobster clasp and close.
  19. Enjoy!
