Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate

Instructions
This finished design will give you a 19 inch necklace, with a small extender. You can adjust the length simply by adjusting the length of chain.
  1. Begin by making all the components of this necklace.
  2. Take the pinch bail and close it around the hole of the edelweiss pendant. Set aside.
  3. String one crystal bicone on to one head pin. Make a simple wire loop. Trim the excess wire. Set aside. Repeat this step with 3 crystal, 3 light siam, and 4 capri blue bicones.
  4. String one crystal bicone on to one eye pin. Make a simple wire loop. Trim the excess wire. Set aside. Repeat this step with 4 crystal, 5 light siam, and 5 capri blue bicones.
  5. Cut a length of chain, with exactly 45 bubble links, which is approximately 18 inches long. The bubble links need to be exact to have the center of the necklace hang correctly. So if you adjust the length keep in mind the center link.
  6. With the remaining length of chain, you will separate bubble links from their adjoining jump rings. You need 26 links.
  7. To assemble the necklace you will be opening the simple wire loops, the same as you would a jump ring. (Please see photo for reference).
  8. Take the long piece of chain and lay it out in from of you.
  9. Count in towards the center 18 links. Using the 4mm jump rings; Open one jump ring and attach one bubble link on the outer loop to the center of the bubble link in the chain. To the bottom of this link, attach one light siam on a headpin.
  10. Moving towards the center one bubble link, attach one bubble link, followed by one crystal eye pin, one bubble link and one carpi blue headpin.
  11. Moving towards the center one bubble link, attach one bubble link, followed by one blue eye pin, one bubble link, one siam eye pin, one bubble link and one crystal headpin.
  12. Moving towards the center one bubble link, attach one bubble link, followed by one crystal eye pin, one bubble link, one blue eye pin, one bubble link, one siam eye pin, one bubble link and one blue headpin.
  13. Moving towards the center one bubble link, attach one bubble link, followed by one siam eye pin, one bubble link and one crystal headpin.
  14. Moving towards the center one bubble link, attach one bubble link, followed by one blue eye pin. Attach one 6mm jump ring to the end of the eye pin and loop it thru the pinch bail with the edelweiss on it.
  15. Moving in the same direction by one bubble link, attach one bubble link, followed by one crystal eye pin, one bubble link and one carpi blue headpin.
