Retired - Pisces Necklace

PROJECT N735
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Koi fish are symbols of strength and perseverance and the two koi fish in the classic ying yang pose are common zodiac symbols for pisces. This meaningful necklace would make a lovely gift for a loved one or a special piece just for you.
Instructions
Please note you will also need some tape for this project.
  1. Start this project by cutting the following lengths of chain: 2 lengths of copper plated chain that are 3.5 inches long each and 1 length of copper plated chain that is 12 inches long; 2 lengths of gold plated chain that are 3.5 inches long each and 1 length of gold plated chain that is 12 inches long; and 1 length of silver plated chain that is 12 inches long.
  2. The end chain links on all of your cut chains are "open" links, meaning that you can open and close them just like jump rings.
  3. Open the end chain link on all 3 of your 12 inch long chains and connect these to the larger circle of Vintaj pewter oval Etruscan connector link. Tape the smaller circle end to a stable flat surface. Create a simple 3 strand braid with your three lengths of chain. When you run out of chain to braid, connect the end chain links to your other Vintaj pewter oval Etruscan connector link (large circle again).
  4. Open the end chain link on one of your 3.5" gold chains and connect this to the small loop on your connector link (from the last step). Close the link. Repeat with your 3.5" copper chain. Connect the other ends of the chains to the toggle bar part of your clasp.
  5. Repeat the previous step on the other side of your necklace but instead of connecting them directly to the ring part of your toggle clasp, connect the chain ends to a 6mm jump ring and then connect that jump ring to the ring part of the toggle clasp.
  6. Open another 6mm jump ring and connect this to your Nunn Design copper plated flat tag and your Vintaj pewter Koi Fish pendant. Before closing the jump ring, link it around your braided chains. Close the jump ring.
  7. Enjoy!
