Retired - Luminous Clover Necklace

PROJECT N7031
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
A shimmering Swarovski crystal clover set in Crystal Clay forms the focal of this St. Patrick's Day necklace, accented by antiqued gold Nunn Design findings.
Instructions
These instructions will make an 18 inch necklace. For a longer or shorter necklace, adjust the length of chain used.
  1. First, watch our video on how to use Crystal Clay.
  2. Following what you learned in the video, put on the gloves that come with your Crystal Clay. Pinch off one chickpea-sized amount each of green clay and binder, and mix together until blended.
  3. Place the clay into the bezel of the Nunn Design pendant and gently press it into place. Roll your finger across the surface of the clay to make sure it is spread evenly throughout the bezel, and to remove any fingerprints.
  4. Place the Swarovski crystal clover fancy stone in the center of the Crystal Clay and gently press so it is captured by the clay.
  5. Let the clay cure for 14 to 16 hours, or overnight.
  6. Cut an 18 inch length of gold chain. Slide it through the loop of the pendant so the pendant is in the center of the chain (the chain is thick, but it will fit through the loop of the pendant).
  7. Open a jump ring and slide it onto the last link of chain on one side. Also slide on the loop of your clasp. Close the jump ring.
  8. Open another jump ring and slide it onto the last link of chain on the other side of the necklace. Close the jump ring.
  9. Enjoy your necklace!
