Retired - Icicle Necklace

PROJECT N7033
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
A Swarovski crystal Grand Crystalactite pendant, clear and brilliant, hangs like an icicle at the center of this simple, striking necklace.
Instructions
These instructions will make an 18 inch necklace. For a longer or shorter necklace, you can purchase a finished chain necklace of a different length.
  1. Cut a 3 inch piece of 20 gauge silver wire.
  2. Watch our video on how to wire wrap a briolette. Based on the instructions in the video, slide the Swarovski Crystalactite pendant onto the wire and bend both sides of the wire over so they cross at the top of the pendant. Using your flat nose pliers, grip one side of the wire at the cross and bend it upward. Take the other side of the wire and make two tight wraps around the first side. Cut off the excess wire with flush cutters.
  3. String one TierraCast silver end cap onto the wire end that is sticking straight up, so the end cap cups the top of the crystal pendant. Orient the crystal pendant so it is facing forward. Then make a simple wire loop and cut off the excess wire with flush cutters.
  4. Open the wire loop from the previous step the same way you would open a jump ring. Slide on your silver snake chain necklace. Close the loop.
  5. All finished!
