Retired - Le Fleur Necklace

PROJECT N530
Designer: Kathy Mannix
Skill Level: Beginner
Lots of lovely Vintaj filigree combine to make this necklace. Easy to make, this is a great project for both beginner and experienced jeweler alike.
Instructions
  1. To begin this necklace, take your Vintaj nouveau crest filigree and set it down on your table with the right side facing up. You want the wider section to be at the top, having it taper at the bottom. Now open your E6000 glue, and using a toothpick or piece of wire as an applicator, place several dabs of glue on the middle underside of your Vintaj deco vines filigree stamping. Press your deco vines stamping onto your Nouveau crest - position it so that it is laying horizontal in orientation and is about 1/4 an inch from the crest top. See photo for exact placement.
  2. Take your Swarovski wild heart pendant and place a dab of E6000 glue on one side of it, just in the middle. Press onto your already glued filigrees from the step above. Position in the center so that it rests on both filigrees.
  3. Find your brass bead cap and using a hammer, gently flatten it out. It's ok if there is still a small curve to the bead cap but you want it to be flatter then what it starts as. Place a small dab of glue on the underside of the bead cap (not too much because you don't want it to spill out the sides) and place over the hole in your already glued Swarovski heart. Press into place. A little glue will spill out the hole in the center, this is ok. Take 1 Swarovski flatback rhinestone in topaz and place over that glue hole, press into place.
  4. Let the above assembled pendant dry.
  5. Cut 2 lengths of chain, 8" long each. Open a 5.25" brass jump ring and connect onto it the last link of one chain length and also the loop at the bottom of your hook clasp. Close the jump ring. On the other end of the same chain, attach a 7.25" brass jump ring and link it to the openwork filigree hole on the top edge of your crest pendant (not the center hole, see photo).
  6. Take the other already cut 8" chain length and on each end attach a 7.25" brass jump ring. Close one of the rings, this will be your other clasp half. For the other ring, attach it to the opposite end of your crest pendant top.
  7. Enjoy!
