Tap into a Vintage Americana vibe with this pewter bird focal from Green Girl Studios. The perfect blend of red and blue gemstone beads gives this necklace a stand out, on trend style.
Instructions
This necklace measures 18 inches in length. To modify the length simply adjust the length of chain on each side respectively.
  1. Begin by cutting two lengths of chain 8.5 inches each. Set aside.
  2. Cut off 3 inches of wire. Straighten the wire with your nylon pliers if necessary. Make a simple wire loop at one end. String on 9 red gemstone beads. Make another simple wire loop and trim any excess wire. Set aside.
  3. Cut off 3.5 inches of wire. Straighten the wire with your nylon pliers if necessary. Make a simple wire loop at one end. String on 13 blue gemstone beads. Make another simple wire loop and trim any excess wire. Set aside.
  4. Open one jump ring and attach it to one hole of the focal pendant link and to one end of one piece of chain. Close the jump ring. Repeat on the other side of the link with the other piece of chain.
  5. On one side of the chain, move up three links. Open the loop, same as you would a jump ring, of the piece of wire with the red beads on it and attach it to the third link of chain. Repeat this to attach the other side to the other side of the chain.
  6. Move up 4 links on the chain. Open the loop of the piece of wire with the blue beads on it and attach it to the seventh link of chain. Repeat this to attach the other side to the other side of the chain.
  7. Move to the end of the chain. Open one jump ring and attach it to the last link in the chain. Close the jump ring.
  8. Move to the other chain end. Open one jump ring and attach it to the last link in the chain and to one lobster clasp. Close the jump ring and you're all done!
