Retired - Transylvania Necklace

PROJECT N3015
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Add a touch of glam to your Halloween look with this pretty necklace that incorporates a Czech glass link chain, colorful dangling beads and an antiqued silver bat charm by TierraCast.
Instructions
Before beginning, watch the video on How to Make a Simple Wire Loop for Jewelry Making, as you will be making a series of simple wire loops for this project.
  1. Begin by cutting a 20 inch long piece off your 1 meter of Czech Fire Polish link chain.
  2. Find the center link on your cut piece of chain, which should be at approximately 10�.
  3. Open up a jump ring and slip on your bat charm. Then also link up the jump ring to the link at the center of your chain. Close the jump ring with your chain nose pliers. Your bat charm should now be at the center of your necklace.
  4. Next, place a green neon bead onto a silver plated head pin. Using a pair of round nose pliers, create a simple loop after the bead, trimming off the excess wire with your flush cutters. Repeat the previous step to make 12 beaded drops, using three more beads in neon green, 2 beads in purple, 4 bicone beads in orange and 2 beads in black/white.
  5. With your chain nose pliers, add jump rings to all of your beaded drops but do not close them just yet.
  6. Now lay your necklace out flat.
  7. Position your beaded drops onto the 6 closest links on either side of the bat and slide the jump rings onto the chain links. Close the jump rings. On the right side, I placed my beaded drops in this order: a green bead, a purple bead, an orange bead, a blk/white bead, an orange bead and a green bead. Onto the left side (going from right to left) I placed: a purple bead, a green bead, an orange bead, a blk/white bead, an orange bead, and a green bead. Refer to the photo for assistance.
  8. Once you are done with this step, it is time to add the clasp. With your round nose pliers, open the last link on one side of your chain. Slide on your spring clasp and close the link back up.
  9. Then on the other side, open the last link and add a jump ring.
  10. Your necklace is now ready.
