Retired - Lucerne Necklace

PROJECT N7010
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
The snowflake-like shape of this Swarovski edelweiss pendant calls to mind frosty mornings on the ski slope -- before hot cocoa at the lodge.
Instructions
  1. Using flush cutters, cut three pieces of sterling silver chain: one 1 inch piece and two 6 inch pieces.
  2. Cut the chalcedony gemstone chain into two 3 inch pieces.
  3. Open your 8mm jump ring. Slide the jump ring onto the Swarovski edelweiss pendant and close it.
  4. Thread the 1 inch piece of chain through the jump ring.
  5. Open a 3mm jump ring and attach one end of the 1 inch piece of chain to one 3 inch length of gemstone chain. Use another 3mm jump ring to attach the other end of the 1 inch piece of chain to the other piece of gemstone chain.
  6. Open another 3mm jump ring and attach the free end of one piece of gemstone chain to one 6-inch length of silver chain. Use another 3mm jump ring to do the same on the other side of the necklace.
  7. Open the 5mm jump ring and attach it to one end of the necklace.
  8. Open the loop on the silver clasp and attach it to the other end of the necklace.
  9. Close your clasp, and you're finished!
