Retired - Mighty Oak Necklace

PROJECT N233
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
Two-toned oak leaves converge in the center of this autumnal necklace. Dangling from the leaves are two fat acorns, made from sparkly Czech glass and topped with adorable acorn-hat bead caps.
Instructions
  1. Begin by preparing your two oak leaf stampings by punching the proper holes in them with the Eurotool two hole metal punch. Watch this instructional video to learn how to use this tool. Holding the copper oak leaf stamping stem up (preexisting hole at bottom) use the smaller attachment on your hole punching tool to create two holes; one on the top lobe, left hand side, and one on the third lobe, also left hand side.
  2. Now, holding your brass oak leaf fastenable stamping with the loop part at the top, punch a hole in the tip of the right-most leaf, and another in the tip of the middle leaf.
  3. Using two oval brass jump rings , attach the two leafs together as shown in the photos.
  4. Onto an antiqued copper head pin, thread a 12mm smoky topaz Czech fire polish bead and a copper acorn bead cap. Create a wrapped wire loop and trim off excess wire. Set this acorn dangle aside for now.
  5. Onto an antiqued brass head pin, thread a 12mm dark topaz Czech fire polish bead and a brass acorn bead cap. Create a wrapped wire loop and trim off excess wire.
  6. To the jump ring which joins the tips of the two leaf findings together, add another jump ring. To this second jump ring, add the smoky topaz acorn dangle.
  7. Now add an additional jump ring to that jump ring. To this third jump ring, add the dark topaz acorn dangle.
  8. Cut your antiqued copper chain into two seven inch long pieces. Use two more jump rings to attach each piece of chain to each of the two loops on either side of the centerpiece.
  9. Use an additional two jump rings to add your clasp to the ends of your chain.
