Retired - Have a Chiyogami Christmas Necklace

PROJECT N129
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
To make this unique necklace we used Origami paper in festive colors. If you are unable to find Origami paper at your local art supply or stationary store, you may also use Christmas wrapping paper.
Instructions
  1. First, choose the paper you would like to use for your project. We used two different patterns of origami paper with red and green floral patterns.
  2. After you have chosen your paper, you must cut it to fit your glass tiles. To do that, lay down your tiles and trace them. Then you must use a sharp pair of scissors or an Exacto knife to cut out the shapes about one to two millimeters inside the lines. We used the bolder pattern, pattern "A", for two of the 7/8" tiles, and for the larger 1 7/8" tile. We used the softer pattern, "B" for the other two tiles.
  3. Using a paint brush, paint a thin layer of Nunn Glue over the entire backside of a clean glass tile, making sure to go all the way to the edge. Flip the tile over and press onto the paper. Smooth the paper out so that there are no air bubbles trapped between the glass and the paper. Let dry fully. Once dry, paint a layer of Nunn Glue over the backside of the image. Let dry fully.
  4. Repeat the above step with all your glass tiles.
  5. Now it is time to glue the bails to the back of your tiles. To do this, you must dab a small amount of E6000 on the back of each bail and position them at the top of each tile, two on each, jutting out horizontally. Allow the E6000 to dry for twenty-four hours.
  6. Once everything on the tiles is dry, connect them using jump rings in this order: jump ring, pattern "A" tile, jump ring, pattern "B" tile, jump ring, large pattern "A" tile, jump ring, pattern "B" tile, jump ring, pattern "A" tile, jump ring.
  7. Cut two pieces of chain at 4 1/2" long, and attach one end of each to a jump ring on either side of the glass tile chain.
  8. To the other end of each piece of chain, add a jump ring.
  9. To one of the jump ring add one half of the toggle clasp, the other half to the other jump ring.
