Retired - The Vienna Necklace

PROJECT N3028
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
With its shiny crystal rhinestone cup chain surrounding a Czech glass chaton, this vintage-inspired necklace mimics Old Hollywood. Let it add some sparkle to your look.
Instructions
  1. Begin by cutting your Crystal rhinestone cupchain segments with your flush cutter. Cut a first segment that is 19 rhinestone links long. Cut a second length that is 13 rhinestone links long. Cut a third segment that is 9 rhinestone links long. Set aside.
  2. Next, watch the instructional video: How to Use Crystal Clay.
  3. Based upon what you learned in the video, prepare a piece of silver Crystal Clay the size of a gumball.
  4. Once you have created your Crystal Clay piece, gently mold it into the bezel setting making sure it spreads out to all the sides and forms a slight dome in the middle. Remove any excess clay from the edges.
  5. Take your longest length of cup chain and place it onto the Crystal Clay in the bezel, facing upwards. The 19 link rhinestone chain should make a perfect circle inside the interior edge of the bezel. Gently press the cup chain down.
  6. Now take your second longest (13 rhinestone links long) and make a second circle inside the bezel, closer to the center. Gently press down into the Crystal Clay.
  7. Take your shortest length (9 rhinestone links long) and make an even smaller circle in the bezel. Refer to the photo for placement assistance.
  8. Next, take your Crystal chaton and gently press it into the middle portion of the bezel.
  9. Lastly, use just the lightest touch of your fingertip to make sure the rhinestones and chaton are indented
  10. Open up your jump ring with your pliers and slide on your bezel pendant and your finished gold plated chain. Close the jump ring.
  11. Allow the clay to fully cure before wearing. Your necklace is now done.
