Retired - Luna Necklace

PROJECT N3037
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Make this pretty natural brass necklace featuring a bold Vintaj butterly stamping bedazzled with an array of sparkly SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS rhinestone flatbacks.
Instructions
This necklace measures 26" long. To make your necklace longer or shorter, simply adjust the chain length.
  1. Begin by cutting two lengths of chain measuring 12" each with your flush cutters. Set aside.
  2. Next, watch the video on How to Use Eurotool's Europunch Pliers.
  3. Using your Europunch tool, carefully punch two holes in the top corners of your Vintaj butterfly stamping. See photo for placement assistance.
  4. With your flat nose pliers, open up a jump ring and slide it onto the last link from one side of one of your lengths of chain. Add on the loop from your clasp and close.
  5. Go to the last link from the opposite side of that same length of chain, and add on an open jump ring. Also slide on the hole you punched from one side of your butterfly stamping and close.
  6. Open up another jump ring with your pliers and slide it onto the last link from one side of your second length of chain and close.
  7. Open up another jump ring and slide it onto the last link from the other end of your chain. Also slide on the second hole you punched on your butterfly stamping and close.
  8. Next, watch the video on How to Use the Vintaj Relief Block. .
  9. Take your Vintaj relief block and following what you learned in the video, begin sanding down the raised areas of your stamping. This will help your stamping �pop� more.
  10. Next, watch the video on How to Use a Magical Pick.
  11. Now you will begin decorating your Vintaj butterfly stamping. Place a tiny dab of Hypo Cement glue onto the stamping (where you want to place your flatback) and using your Magical Pick, pick up a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS rhinestone flatback and place it onto the Vintaj butterfly stamping, flat side down.
  12. Continue the process of gluing on flatbacks and please refer to the photo often to mimic my design. I used 4 ss16 Jet Black flatbacks, 16 ss12 Jet Black flatbacks and 29 ss12 Crystal Lilac Shadow flatbacks to decorate my stamping. You can add more flatbacks if you'd like.
  13. Once your flatbacks are all on, set your stamping aside to dry.
  14. You're done!
