Retired - Sparkly Starfish Necklace

PROJECT N7045
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner

Make this beach-themed necklace featuring a pretty Nunn Design starfish stamping and matte gold plated rolo chain. Austrian crystal flat back rhinestones in seashore hues complete the look.

Instructions

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

These instructions will make a 24 inch necklace. For a longer or shorter necklace, adjust the length of chain used.
  1. Take 1 Nunn Design starfish stamping and line the back side with a thin layer of Hypo Cement glue. Place the stamping, glue side down, onto the front of your Nunn Design antiqued gold circle pendant. Center the starfish on the pendant without covering up the hole of the pendant. Set aside to dry for a few minutes.
  2. Next, use the precise applicator of the Hypo Cement tube to paint a thin layer of glue onto one triangular section of the front of the circle pendant, between two of the starfish's arms. Use the Crystal Katana to place Austrian crystal crystal flat backs in Crystal Metallic Sunshine close to the center of the starfish. Then place Austrian crystal crystal flat backs in Light Turquoise along the outer portion of the triangular section. (You don't have to place them in neat rows; use an uneven pattern to mimic waves on the beach!) Let dry for a few hours.
  3. Using your pliers, open a jump ring. Slide it through the hole of the circular pendant, and also slide it onto your length of chain. Close the jump ring.
  4. Open another jump ring. Slide it through the last link of chain on one side of the necklace, and also slide on the loop of your matte gold lobster clasp. Close the jump ring.
  5. Open another jump ring. Slide it through the last link of chain on the other side of your necklace. Close the jump ring.
  6. Enjoy your necklace!
