Retired - The Gilded Cage Necklace

PROJECT N203
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
This necklace showcases a sweet little matte gold cage containing a small silver bird.
Instructions
Cut your chain into seven pieces which are three inches long each. Set these aside. Now cut six three inch long pieces of 20 gauge gold craft wire.Create the beginning of a wrapped wire loop on one end of a three-inch segment of wire. Thread the loop through the last link at one end of one of the chain segments. Finish wrapping the loop and thread onto the wire a Czech glass cathedral bead sandwiched between two scalloped bead caps.At the opposite end of this piece of wire, begin another wrapped wire loop. Thread this loop through one end of a second segment of chain before completing the wrapping. Continue creating wire and bead links just like the first to connect the other pieces of chain, stopping when you have each chain segment joined with each end empty and not attached to anything else.Use two jump rings to connect each end of the chain to the two loops of the leafy silver plated central connector piece.Thread the bird charm onto a headpin and create a simple loop on the headpin that is about half an inch away from the bird.Open the loop at the top of this headpin and thread it through the loop hanging down inside the birdcage. Close the loop again.Use a third jump ring to attach the loop at the top of the bird cage to the center point in the leafy connector piece.Keywords:necklace, spring, bird, cage, fern, branch, btq-natureTip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.All designs © Beadaholique Inc.
