Retired - Wrapped In Turquoise Necklace

PROJECT N3097
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Wire wrap pretty turquoise gemstone chips within a modern Nunn Design open framed pendant for a look that is effortlessly boho chic.
Instructions
This necklaces measures 19" long. For a necklace that is shorter or longer, 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 length of gold plated wire (you can add on more wire as you go) and wire-wrap a total of 28 turquoise gemstone chips (I added about 10 beads onto each row, but this depends on bead size) onto your Nunn Design open frame pendant. See photo for assistance.
  3. Next, using your flush cutters, cut a 19" length of chain.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Open a last jump ring, slide on the loop from the top of your pendant and slide it onto chain and close.
  7. You're done!
