Sapphire Princess Necklace featuring Swarovski Crystals

PROJECT N852
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
With a brilliant Swarovski crystal princess cut pendant as the focal, this necklace is both dazzling and dramatic. In addition to the crystal focal, the sides of the chain are also accented with delicate bicones that dangle in clusters of three.
Instructions
  1. Start by finding the mid point of your necklace. You can do this by holding your premade necklace by the clasp and letting the two sides drop. Find the middle chain link.
  2. Open a 6mm jump ring and link it to your princess cut pendant as well as that middle chain link. Close the jump ring. You have now established the middle of your necklace and in a future step will be counting chain links along the sides from this middle point.
  3. Place a sapphire bicone onto a head pin. Create a wrapped wire loop immediately after the bicone and trim off excess wire with flush cutters. Repeat this step 7 more times so that you have a total of 8 sapphire dangles created.
  4. Repeat the previous step but using aquamarine shimmer bicones. Create a total of 6 of these dangles.
  5. From your middle point, count 12 chain links up on one side of the necklace. Open a 4mm jump ring and link onto it 2 sapphire dangles and 1 aquamarine dangle. Link this jump ring with dangles to that 12th chain link on the side of your necklace. Close the jump ring.
  6. Repeat the previous step except this time count 12 chain links from the dangle cluster you just attached. Attach another 3 bead cluster. Then attach another cluster 12 chain links from the cluster you just attached so that you have 3 of these bead clusters on the side of your necklace.
  7. Repeat the previous 2 steps so that you complete 3 more clusters of 3 beads on the other side of your necklace.
  8. Enjoy!
