Retired - Ruby Gemstone and Pearl Necklace

PROJECT N750
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
This heirloom necklace features a lovely faceted ruby gemstone bezel pendant accented by pearl and gold vermeil chain. You and your loved ones will treasure this stunning piece of jewelry for years to come.
Instructions
Note: These instructions make a 16 inch necklace and you are ordering the exact amount of chain needed. If you want to make a longer necklace, make sure to order more chain.
  1. This entire project is demonstrated at the end of the video: Product Spotlight: Gemstone Bezel Pendants and Links. However, if you want written instructions, please see below.
  2. Check your gemstone chain and make sure that you have an intact loop on each end. If your chain does not have an intact loop on each end, please watch the video: How to Properly Cut Gemstone Chain and cut your chain.
  3. Open a 4mm jump ring and slip it onto one end of your chain. Also slide on the clasp. Close the jump ring.
  4. On the other side of your chain, open and link a 4mm jump ring. Also link onto this jump ring a closed 5mm jump ring. Close the 4mm jump ring.
  5. Your pearl necklace is now done. To add the ruby bezel pendant, open another 4mm jump ring, connect it to the pendant (do not close). Now find the mid way point of your pearl necklace and link the jump ring around the chain. Close the jump ring.
  6. Enjoy!
