Retired - Geometric Honeycomb Necklace

PROJECT N796
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
With a modern contemporary design, this mixed metals graphic necklace can be worn with just about anything. The focal is comprised of 3 honeycomb designs linked together and hung from slim rolo chains.
Instructions
  1. Start this necklace by cutting the following lengths of chain: 2 lengths of gold chain that are 5" long each and 2 lengths of silver chain that are 3.5" long each.
  2. Once your chain has been cut, the rest of the project construction is simply linking elements together with jump rings.
  3. Open a gold jump ring and connect it to your clasp and the end chain link of a gold piece of chain. Close the jump ring.
  4. Connect a gold jump ring to the other end chain link of that same piece of chain as well the end chain link of a piece of silver chain.
  5. Connect a silver jump ring to the other end chain link of the silver chain as well one of the honeycombs on your honeycomb pendant (your honeycomb pendant should sit horizontally). On the other end of the honeycomb pendant, attach a silver jump ring and connect it to the end honeycomb of a second honeycomb pendant. Please refer to picture if needed for orientation.
  6. You area now at the half way point of your necklace. Repeat the previous 3 steps to create the rest of your design, creating a mirror image of the first half. The only exception will be at the very end to add a silver jump ring instead of the lobster clasp.
