Retired - Woodland Dreams Necklace

PROJECT N3098
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Adorned with blue howlite gemstone cubes and wood beads, this wire-wrapped Nunn Design pendant necklace is a casual layering necklace option.
Instructions
The chain used in this necklace measures 24 inches. For a necklace that is longer or shorter, simply adjust the chain length.
  1. Before you begin, please watch the video on How to Wire Wrap Rows of Beads onto a Form. In this wire wrapping video tutorial see how to create neat rows of beads that stretch across a solid form.
  2. Following what you learned in the video, cut a 2 ft length of gold plated wire (you can add on more wire as you go) and horizontally wire-wrap a total of 57 wood beads onto your form. (I added about 8 beads onto each row, 3 rows on the front and 4 on the back) See photo for placement assistance.
  3. Using your chain nose pliers, open a gold plated jump ring and slide it onto the last link on one side of chain. Close the jump ring.
  4. Open another jump ring and attach it onto the last link from the other side of chain. Before closing, also slide on the loop from your gold plated lobster clasp and close.
  5. Open a last jump ring, slide on the loop from the top of your pendant and slide it onto chain and close.
  6. Onto a gold plated ball head pin, slide on one blue howlite cube. Create a simple wire loop using your round nose pliers and snip off any excess using your flush cutters.
  7. Repeat this process and make 11 more bead dangles, giving you 12 total.
  8. Allow your pendant to drop to the center of your chain length. Open the simple loop on a bead dangle (how you would a jump ring) and attach it onto the 5th chain link from your hanging pendant. Do the same thing on the other side of the pendant.
  9. Next, skip a chain link and attach the next bead dangle by opening the simple loop. Do the same thing on the other side. Continue adding on bead dangles onto every other chain link. You should have 6 bead dangles on either side of the pendant.
  10. You're done!
