Retired - Marigold Steampunk Pocket Watch Pendant

PROJECT N2149
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Add a splash of color to a finished pocket watch chain for a great new look and an easy way to add length to any chain.
Instructions
Please watch our video: How to Embellish a Pocket Watch Chain. In this video you will get some design inspiration for ways to customize the finished chain of the pocket watch.
  1. Take one eye pin and string on one yellow bead. Make a simple wire loop. Set aside. Repeat this step 5 more times.
  2. Take one eye pin and string on one filigree bead. Make a simple wire loop. Set aside. Repeat this step 3 more times.
  3. Open the jump ring attached to the pendant and remove it.
  4. Find the center two inches of chain and cut it out of the center using your flush cutters. You should now have three pieces of chain, 14.5", 2", and 14.5".
  5. Take one eye pin loop with the yellow bead on it and open the loop, same as you would a jump ring, attaching it to the end of one of the 14.5" of chain.
  6. In the same manner as above, attach one eye pin with the filigree bead to the yellow bead you just added. Then attach another yellow eye pin, followed by a filigree eye pin and another yellow. Once you have created this length attach the loop of the last link to the 2 inch piece of chain. Move to the other side of this chain and mirror this process to add the beads in this order: yellow, filigree, yellow, filigree, and yellow.
  7. On to the end of this yellow bead, attach the 14.5" length of chain.
  8. Take one 8mm jump ring, open it and attach the watch pendant around the center 2 inches of chain.
