Retired - Lover's Embrace Necklace

PROJECT N170
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
Like a tale of two star-crossed lovers, this necklace elicits feelings of love and longing. The pendant, which features a cameo depicting said lovers, hangs from a graceful long and curvy strand.
Instructions
  1. Begin by spreading a small amount E6000 on the back of the cameo, using a toothpick or a piece of wire. Press the cameo firmly onto the center of the antiqued filigree stamping. Wipe off excess glue and set aside to dry for a few hours.
  2. Open a 7.25mm open jump ring and thread it through the hole at the top and center of the filigree stamping. Close the jump ring again.
  3. Cut a piece of Soft Flex at about thirty inches long, and secure one end with a Bead Stopper.
  4. Onto the beading wire thread the following:
  5. a noodle bead
  6. a 3mm orange aventurine
  7. a 4mm brass diamond cut out bead
  8. a 6mm carnelian glass bead
  9. a 4mm brass diamond cut out bead
  10. and a 3mm orange aventurine. Repeat the pattern a total of eight times
  11. then add another 4mm brass diamond cut out bead
  12. and a 6mm carnelian glass bead.
  13. This is the first half of your necklace.
  14. Onto the wire, thread the jump ring containing the pendant. String the other half of the necklace as a mirror image of the first.
  15. Remove the bead stopper and add a 3mm orange aventurine and a crimp bead to each end, but do not crimp the crimp bead just yet.
  16. Thread each end of the necklace through a brass split ring and back through the crimp beads. Crimp both crimp beads and add a crimp bead cover over each, gently squeezing them closed after you do so. Trim off excess wire.
  17. To one of the split rings, add the hook clasp. To the other split ring, add the last 7.25mm open jump ring.
