PROJECT N632
Designer: Julie Bean

A cherished wire wrapped beaded flower is carefully guarded within an ornate glass and pewter bottle pendant. Finishing the look is a key toggle bar clasp placed on a long textured gold chain. A keepsake for
Instructions
  1. To see how to make the flower, check out this video here. Use your 26 gauge silver colored wire (10 - 12 inches), Toho 11/0 beads in transparent luster rose, Czech 11/0 seed beads mix lot in greens, and finally for the center of the flower, a Swarovski flat back crystal rhinestone in sunflower. Follow the video and make the flower according to the step by step instructions. Insert the flower into your glass bottle following the video directions.
  2. Once your flower is in the bottle, scoop some extra green seed beads into the base so that it forms a "bed" for your flower to rest on. Shake these to the bottom.
  3. Screw the lid onto your bottle tightly.
  4. Take your 3 feet of chain and on one of the ends, remove the last link. Open the link just the same as you would a jump ring. Now divide your chain in half (just fold in half) and find the middle link. Onto that middle link attach the link you removed from the end and connect it to the hoop at the top of your glass vial pendant. Close the link back up like a jump ring.
  5. Now go to one end of your chain and open that end link like a jump ring. Attach onto it the loop at the base of your key toggle bar. Close your loop back up the same way you would close a jump ring. Go to the other side of your necklace and attach the round part of the clasp the same way.
