Retired - Mrs. T. Necklace

PROJECT N161
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
Our Mrs. T. Necklace is so-named for its resemblance to the layers of gold chain worn by that iconic tough guy, Mr. T... Although, of course, our version is much more feminine and hip. I pity the fool who doesn't like this necklace.
Instructions
To begin, cut two pieces of ribbon at ten inches long each.Thread each piece of ribbon through a 10mm closed jump ring (FJR-4030), and fold the ribbon in half, with the jump ring directly in the center.Onto each piece of doubled-up ribbon, thread two antiqued gold plated 8.5mm open jump rings (FJR-2052).Gather the two ends of the ribbon and fold them over an eighth of an inch. Insert the rolled end of the ribbon into a gold plated ribbon pinch crimp (FCR-1421). Using a pair of nylon jaw pliers (XTL-6020), gently squeeze the pinch crimp closed. NOTE: To ensure the ribbon is being held securely in place, add a dab of E600 adhesive (XTL-1053) to the end before you insert it into the crimp.Open two gold plated 7mm jump rings (FJR-5270), and add one to each of the loops on the ribbon crimps. Do not close the jump rings yet.To one of the jump rings, add a lobster clasp. To the other jump ring, add the chain extender. Close both jump rings again.Now that you have the back of your necklace complete, you can begin to cut the lengths of chain for the "bib" part of the necklace. You may use our specific instructions on how to arrange where the various chains go, or you may want to explore on your own the different ways to arrange the chain. Once you cut each length of chain, you will add a 5mm gold plated open jump ring to each end, and you will use these to attach the chain to the large closed jump ring at either end of the back part of the necklace.From the shortest (inside) piece to the longest (outside) piece, here are the chain sku numbers and lengths, to be added to the necklace in this order: CHA-1812, nine inchesCHA-9716, nine and three quarters inchesCHA-1807, eleven inchesCHA-9696, eleven and a half inchesCHA-9806, twelve inchesCHA-9686, twelve and a quarter inchesCHA-1807, thirteen inchesCHA-9720, fourteen inchesCHA-1812, fifteen and a half inchesCHA-9651, sixteen and a half inchesCHA-9736, seventeen inchesTip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.All designs © Beadaholique Inc.
