Skill Level: Beginner
A beautiful ceramic bead from Golem Studio hangs from a silk ribbon and a chunky chain in this necklace. This piece will add a great touch of flair to any everyday look.

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

  1. Begin by watching the video: How to Attach Ribbon to a Jump Ring.
  2. Trim the tapered end off of one side of a length of olive green silk ribbon. Using the method shown in the video, attach this end to a 22k gold plated 7mm, 18 gauge jump ring.
  3. Slide a Golem Studio glazed ceramic lentil bead onto your ribbon a few inches from the jump ring.
  4. Measure about 10" from the point at which the jump ring is attached and cut the ribbon. Attach the free end to a second 7mm jump ring.
  5. Use a pair of flush cutters to cut two 5" lengths of 22k gold plated flat oval cable chain.
  6. Use the 7mm jump rings to attach one length of chain to each end of the ribbon.
  7. Use a 4mm, 22 gauge 22k gold plated jump ring to attach a 22k gold plated lobster clasp to one end of the chain. You will use the last link on the other end to attach to the clasp.
  8. Slide your ceramic bead to the center of the ribbon. The two sides of this bead are slightly different, so you can flip the bead to the side that you prefer.
