Retired - Victorian Jewel Necklace

PROJECT N531
Designer: Kathy Mannix
Skill Level: Intermediate
Both delicate and bold, this eye-catching necklace harks to the Victorian era. Vintaj brass surrounds Swarovski crystal, accentuating each other perfectly.
Instructions
  1. On one side of your Vintaj circle ring pendant, run a line of E6000 adhesive. You can apply it by using a toothpick or piece of wire as an applicator. Turn it so that the glue side is facing down and center on your Vintaj brass garden trellis filigree. Press into place. Take your Swarovski crystal 16mm rivoli bead and run a line of glue along the underside edge of the crystal (the back pointed side). Press this into your already glued filigree ring pendant. Let all of these pieces dry fully before going onto the next stage.
  2. Making the bail. Take your Vintaj brass acorn leaves connector and using your chain nose pliers or your fingers, bend it into thirds (3 even sides, 1/3 of the total length each) - so that it forms a triangle. Where the two sides touch, slide it onto the outer edge of your assembled pendant above. You want the edge of the above filigree pendant to be sandwiched between the two sides of the bent acorn leaves bail. Cut 3" of brass wire and bend in half. Thread each end through two open work holes on the front side of your bent bail. Thread the wires all the way through the pendant edge and back out the other side of the bail. Pull snug and then using your fingers, twist the wires together. Make approximately 6 or 7 twists then snip off the remaining wire with your flush cutters. Push the twisted end into the filigree so that the rough ends are tucked inward.
  3. Turn your pendant over so that the front side is facing up. We are now going to cover the wire that is attaching the bail that you made in the step above. Place a dab of E6000 over the wire and press a Vintaj decorative pinwheel washer over the glue dab. A bit of glue will seep through the middle hole. Place a Swarovski flatback crystal rhinestone into this glue and press into place. Let dry.
  4. Cut your 2' of chain so that you have one length which is 20" long. Thread one end through the bail. On each end of the chain, open a 4.75mm brass jump ring and connect it to the end link and one half of the clasp. Close the jump ring.
