Retired - Sunshadow Necklace

PROJECT N3059
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
With a dazzling SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS black patina Crystal pendant paired with matte gold chain and findings, this striking necklace is both unique and trendy.
Instructions
You will be using all 24 inches of chain for this necklace. To make your necklace shorter, simply adjust your chain length.
  1. Begin by opening up a gold plated jump ring with your chain nose pliers, and slide on the last link from one side of your chain and close.
  2. Open up another jump ring and slide it onto the last link from the other side of your chain. Before closing, also slide on the loop from your matte gold plated lobster clasp and close.
  3. With your flush cutters, cut a 15� length of wire.
  4. Next, watch the video on How to Wire Wrap a Briolette.
  5. Following what you learned in the video, take your wire length and thread it through your SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS pendant. Wrap your wire around the top of the pendant as seen in the photo. Since this is a messy wire-wrap, you can add as much wire onto your pendant as you like. When you get to the point where you are happy with your wrappings, decide what is going to be the backside of your pendant (the SWAROVSKI patina pendant has 2 sides for you to choose from). Snip off the excess wire using flush cutters. Carefully press the wire end into the wrappings on the backside.
  6. Next, open up a jump with your chain nose pliers and slide it through your wrapped wire loop. Do not close your jump ring just yet.
  7. Measure the center point of your chain (which is the 12� mark) and slide on your open jump ring onto that center chain link and close.
  8. Open up a jump ring and slide it through the hole on the left side of your TierraCast gold plated connector link. Also slide on the 10th chain link from the left side of your necklace and close. See photo for placement reference.
  9. Open up another jump ring, slide it through the hole on the right side of the gold plated connector link and also the 10th chain link on the right side of your chain and close. See photo.
  10. You�re done!
