Retired - Jeweled Noir Necklace

PROJECT N3067
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
Sparkling beautifully, this Swarovski crystal flatback bejeweled necklace is the perfect accessory to glam up your little black dress.
Instructions
To make this necklace longer, simply use a longer length of chain.
  1. Before you begin, please watch the video on How to Use BeadSmith's Magical Pick Up Tool for Flatback Rhinestones.
  2. Begin by cutting two 7.5" lengths of gold plated round rolo chain with your flush cutters. Set aside for now.
  3. Next, take 1 brass stamping and using your Eurotool punch tool, punch a second hole on the opposite side of the hole that is already on the stamping. You will be connecting your stampings using jump rings through these holes, so try and get them as symmetrical as possible. See photo for placement assistance.
  4. Repeat the process of punching a second hole on all 6 brass stampings.
  5. Now you will begin adding a selection of Swarovski crystal flat backs onto each stamping using your HypoCement glue. I did not follow any specific patterns, just a mixture of colors: Jet, Black Diamond, Hematite and Jet Hematite. Feel free to add as many or as little of one color as you'd like. Add a dab of glue, use your Magical Pick tool to pick up each flatback and place it down onto the glue. Repeat this process until all your brass stampings are covered. Once done, set all your stampings aside to dry.
  6. Next, using your chain nose pliers, open a jump ring, slide through the hole from one stamping and the hole from a second stamping and close. You will connect all 6 stampings via jump rings in this manner.
  7. Once all 6 stampings are connected, open the last jump ring from one end (using your chain nose pliers) and slide on the last link from one end of one length of chain and close. Repeat this step with your second chain length on the other side. See photo.
  8. Open a jump ring, slide on the loop from your lobster clasp and also the last link from one length of chain and close.
  9. Open another jump ring and slide it onto the last link from the second length of chain and close.
  10. Onto a gold plated head pin, slide on one Czech fire polish tear drop bead and create a wrapped wire loop using your round nose pliers. Snip off excess wire using your flush cutters.
  11. Open a smaller 6mm jump ring, slide on the wrapped wire loop and attach it onto the 4th jump ring at the center of your necklace and close.
  12. You're done!
