Retired - Red Agate Necklace

PROJECT N3026
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This necklace showcases a beautiful tapered Agate bead on a gold plated chain. It is simple and elegant, with a great pop of rich red color.
Instructions
Please note: I am using a 3" head pin for this project and turning it into an eye pin because a 3" eye pin is not available and I need that extra long length. This necklace measures 18" long.
  1. Begin by cutting 2 lengths of chain measuring 8" each. Set aside.
  2. Take your headpin, snip off the head with your flush cutters and create a simple wire loop.
  3. Slide your headpin through your Agate bead and create another simple wire loop.
  4. Open up two jump rings with your pliers and slide them through the simple wire loops on either side of your Agate tube bead. Do not close the jump rings quite yet.
  5. Slip on the last link from one side of your length of chain onto one of the open jump rings.
  6. Repeat this step with your other length of chain and the other open jump ring.
  7. Close both jump rings with your pliers.
  8. Now open up two more jump rings and slide each onto the last links on the other ends of your lengths of chain.
  9. Close up one of your jump rings with your pliers.
  10. Onto the other open jump ring, slide on your clasp and close.
  11. Your necklace is now ready.
