Retired - The Maxine Necklace

PROJECT N733
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
This modern looking design features two rows of brilliant SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 4mm round beads set into a bright silver plated Katiedids channel set component. Wear during the day to dress up a casual outfit or at night as a stunning accessory to a little black dress.
Instructions
This project makes a 24" necklace without a clasp. If you want a longer necklace, purchase more chain and cut to your desired length.
  1. To make this necklace, please first watch the video: How to Use Katiedids Channel-Set Components with Beads
  2. Based upon what you learned in the video, make your focal. Start by inserting a headpin up through the holes in the Katiedids channel-set component and then create a wrapped wire loop on the outside of the component.
  3. Following what you learned in the video, and using beading wire and glue, insert 15 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 4mm round beads in pacific opal into the center ring. Then repeat the same process inserting 23 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 4mm round beads in amethyst into the outer ring.
  4. Your chain consists of a bunch of open chain links, meaning that you can open and close these just like jump rings. Open the end chain links and connect these to the wrapped wire loop on the top of your connector to complete your necklace.
  5. Enjoy!
