Retired - Treasures of the Heart Necklace

PROJECT N690
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
The heart and key focal piece of this necklace doubles as a clever interlocking clasp. The bezel interior of the heart has been filled with shades of pink Crystal Clay and accented with dazzling SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal chatons.
Instructions
  1. Begin by watching the video tutorial: How to Create Color Variations with Crystal clay.
  2. Based upon what you learned in the video, mix up a large pea size amount of cotton candy pink Crystal Clay. Look at the photo of this project and press the pink clay into the bottom half of your Nunn Design heart toggle pendant. Next mix up a gumball size amount of a lighter pink Crystal Clay which you create by mixing 1/2 pink with 1/2 white clay. Press this into the top half of your heart toggle pendant.
  3. Now look at the photo again and place your pp14 and pp24 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal chatons in crystal AB as shown in the picture. If you are not sure how to set chatons into Crystal Clay, you can watch the video: How to Use Nunn Design Bead Cores to Make a Crystal Pave Ring.
  4. Let your above pendant dry overnight.
  5. Open a 6mm antique copper plated jump ring and link it to the end chain link of your 2 feet of antique copper plated long and short chain. Also link it to the top loop of your heart pendant. Close the jump ring.
  6. On the other side of your chain, attach another jump ring and also link it to the loop at the base of your Nunn Design key toggle bar.
  7. All done! Enjoy
